I'm a huge Josh Johnson fan. Yup, he has an injury history now, but elbows have become the most easily treated and least likely to recur injuries in baseball. It's not like his shoulder blew up.

And yes, Jaime Garcia has had TJ and will be gone for the season. Take him off your lists.

I put this in another thread, but I love Manny Parra for his high ERA, yet high ground ball and strikeout rates.

Parra is the kind of guy this thread should revolve around. Most of the others are going to be hyped up to the point that they'll be drafted too early for most people's tastes. A guy like Parra is likely to actually fall (or be forgotten) to a point where he's worth the upside.

I think Harang will be a bargain this year. I think that he just had a bad year in 2008. I also think Litsch will be a bargain . He was real good in the 2nd half last year.
Chris Young is another. He, like Harang were going much earlier in the last couple years .
I also agree with Josh Johnson, Danks , and Volstad.

Buccholtz is twice the pitcher Johnson and Jimenez are. By all accounts he's just been jacked with too much so its hard to say what will happen with him and his development.


Yea I understand Buchholtz is a better prospect and has a much higher potential. I think the problems with his mechanics really set him back but he could either explode or just settle for average. He is someone that taking a chance on is not a bad idea since he could proove to be all that he was thought to be

Hmmm a a 24 year old with a career 3.50 ERA in 300 innings vs. a 24 year old Colorado pitcher with no control vs. a 24 year old AL pitcher with a career 5 ERA, poor control, and no rotation spot.

Gee, this is such a difficult decision.

And if you look into the ages, considering pitchers developement, and the ceiling each ones poses you will see why they are interesting topics :-°

Deep, deep, sleeper

Jorge de la Rosa:

De La Rosa had an excellent ERA in 12 starts and two relief appearances over the second half of the season, going 7-3 with a 3.08 ERA and a .228 batting-average against. He'll enter spring training battling for a rotation spot and could be a decent low-end starting pitcher to pick up late on Draft Day. We are not convinced he is anything more than a long reliever and spot starter, but the 27-year-old's age and remarkable steadiness in the second half cannot be completely ignored. (Updated 12/3/08)

10-8, 128-k in 130 inn :-?
