I am kind of shocked that Timmy is so high on everyone's list. It makes me real sad that I kept Bedard over him last year. I think having Cain on my team along with Tim made me think that there was no way that Timmy could win over 10 games for that Giants team. I could be sitting real pretty in my 16 team league with Johan and Timmy as my anchors :~(
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

The top seven are pretty easy to me for the guys I want anchoring my staff, basically in three tiers:

Johan Santana
Tim Lincecum

CC Sabathia
Cole Hamels
Brandon Webb
Jake Peavy

Roy Halladay (A step down because is he really going to strike out that many guys again?)

8, 9, and 10 are trickier. I guess Haren starts it off but honestly, who wants to draft a guy who is always terrible when you're fighting for a championship? It doesn't matter how great his overall numbers are, a guy can't be a SP1 if he's useless during fantasy playoffs every season. I'll list him at #8 based on overall production but never actually take him in a fantasy draft because even if I can deal him in June, I'm not playing with guys who live under a rock and don't know Haren's history so he'll get a poor return. I'd feel better off drafting James Shields a little later and I'll take him at 9. For 10, I'd go with Oswalt based on guys worth drafting there but I'd put Beckett on a top ten list, likely at #8, once we get closer to the 2009 season and we see how he's pitching in spring training.

He is only projected to have 9 wins next year. He'd be number 1 if he played for a real team.

That only applies to Matt Cain. The Giants offense takes the night off after scoring 10 runs for Timmy's start. ;-)
