Top 25 Starting Pitchers

Postby CBMGreatOne » Thu Feb 26, 2004 5:27 pm

What do you think of this list? I think it needs some adjustment, but what do you say?

1. Prior
2. Pedro
3. Schmidt
4. Halladay
5. Schilling
6. Wood
7. Mussina
8. Vazquez
9. Randy Johnson (sorry, missed his name for some reason, when I was scanning the prerankings)
10. Hudson
11. Mulder
12. Oswalt
13. Zito
14. Brown
15. Beckett
16. Colon
17. Wolf
18. Nomo
19. Pettite
20. Millwood
21. Zambrano
22. Webb
23. L. Hernandez
24. Santana
25. Morris
25b. Contreras

I left off some probable sleepers like Ryan Wagner and Edwin Jackson, and some others whose roles are not clearly defined, so I would bet there'd be a good amount of disagreement after number 15 or so, but what do you think?

You don't have Randy Johnson on that list.

I'd put Schilling and Wood ahead of Schmidt, and probably move Oswalt to the top 10, but, overall, I like the list.

I'd bump Nomo down a little....he's throwing well but had offseason surgery. Also, I'd watch Wolf in the spring. He pitched terribly at the end and may have been hiding something.

I don't know if L. Hernandez is worth top 25.

Colon, Brown, and Santana should be up higher

1. Prior - no doubt here
2. Pedro - yulp
3. Schmidt - seems a little high, I'm not convinced he can pull it off again
4. Halladay - definitely top 10
5. Schilling - I'd say #3
6. Wood - maybe as high as 4
7. Mussina - about right, I like him this year
8. Vazquez - should break the top 10 or so
9. Randy Johnson - wildcard. could be #1 or #101
10. Hudson - sure
11. Mulder - I like him. Most will say this is too high
12. Oswalt - huge rebound candidate
13. Zito - I think he'll have a fine year
14. Brown - lucky to make it through last year
15. Beckett - uh... maybe
16. Colon - uh... not far off
17. Wolf - sure
18. Nomo - hopefully
19. Pettite - I wouldn't have him in my top 25
20. Millwood - definitely. probably higher
21. Zambrano - hope his arm doesn't fall off from all those innings last year. Great stuff.
22. Webb - I see a bit of a falloff from last year but worth owning
23. L. Hernandez - hmm. maybe. but probably not
24. Santana - borderline top 10. Only concern is the adjustment to 200+ innings
25. Morris - I have him higher
25b. Contreras - still not a believer

I like Maddog to be top 25 since rejoining the cubbies. Clemens, Clement, Pineiro, Lowe, Padilla, W. Miller all seem worth consideration in that range.
