Funny enough I think TB should be the pre-season favorites in the East.

I've got you penciled in for the 8th round regardless, eftda. Make sure you pitch a few complete games with those 210 innings.

Lester is admittedly a unique case, and it’s hard to say whether or not he faces the same injury risk as some of these other guys or not. For what it’s worth, Lester was sitting 90-91 MPH with his fastball in the early months of the season, but was firing 94 MPH bullets by the time September rolled around.


Lester's ERA, Whip, Cmd, K/9, etc... all were better in the 2nd half of the season. 0.00 ERA in the ALDS (14 IP) but a 4.97 ERA in the ALCS. A deeper bullpen may lead to lesser IP for Lester in 09. the 210 IP work load is not enough to keep me away from drafting me.


I didn't say I shared the concern. The other poster said he didn't see why people were expecting him to regress. I personally don't as I have him ranked higher than any of the other rankers did in the recently released ones.

Wait....Jon is that you?
