Yeah I'm really hoping that he bombs the rest of the way so I can get him cheap. :-D

He may not have to bomb for you to get him cheap. I really think people are going to be cautiuos with drafting him next year wondering if he can repeat what he did this year even if he finishes the year strong.

Doubt he will go cheap in my league if he finishes the year with a 3.17 ERA.

I don't think he'll go cheap next year, but you might still be able to draft him at a bargain in the 12 - 15 range with all of the other high upside, young SPs. The same area where Chad Billingsley went last season...

He's a flyball pitcher, you're going to have to live with the HR's. I could see him being valued like James Shields was this year and potentially a decent bargain. Good but not great.

Unless he finishes this season in strong fashion, I think Johnny Cueto goes the way of being a late round pick, but hopefully he doesn't become fully overhyped like Daniel Cabrera a couple of seasons ago.

I like a couple of Florida pitchers
- Sanchez and Johnson
Gallardo is always a good choice but don't forget about David Price. I like him to get called up late and then be a solid starter for the Rays next year.
