Which pitcher has the better fantasy prospects for 2004

Postby Mr. October » Thu Feb 26, 2004 3:10 pm

It's the last pick in the 20th round of a 12 team keeper league. It's not a snake draft. I am ready to pick my 6th SP and probably final SP( it just depends on whose left). I already have Prior, Clemens, Petite, Odalis Perez, and M. Redman. Pitching cats are W, K, Sv, hlds, ERA, and Whip. Which of the following would be a compliment to my current staff?

Lawrence
Eaton
Glavine
Armas Jr.
H. Ramirez
j. Thompson
May
D.Wells
Radke
Milton
Wakefield
V. Zambrano
Sheets
Kirk Rueter
Fogg
etc
etc
etc.

I could go on but that's plenty. I'm leaning towards Lawrence because of the improved lineup and the new ballpark but I would like a little input first.

I'd go with either Wakefield, Glavine, or Wells in that situation. They're all historically good pitchers, and Wakefield plays on a solid team. He's less likely to be affected by the big sluggers in the AL-East, since they'll still have to adjust to him every game they face him.

Lots of pretty good pitchers for that spot in the draft! I'd go with a K pitcher (or at least someone who has a chance of being one) like Sheets or Milton or Armas. I think at this stage I'd rather take a chance on a younger guy than the tired old cliches, Wells, Glavine, Radke, et al. Zambrano is another intriuging choice and I do really like Wakefield, because it's such an adjustment for the hitters to make every time they face him......

Who is going to pick up holds for you?

Try for Mota, Lidge or Donnelly if they are still available.
