Voted for Brandon Webb.

The guy is just plain consistent and gets the job done every year.

Almost chose Peavy or Halladay, but injuries and their respective teams led me away.

Well if I went Webb for #3, guess I should be consistent ;-)

Strong track record for Webb, guaranteed 200+ IP from the guy. Peavy would go here if I felt confident he'd finish above .500 (Can't believe his record last year was 10-11). As i stated in the previous thread, I worry about the workload on Hamels' arm. I'll likely stay away from him this year, unless he somehow falls on draft day.

Webb is a solid choice, but Peavy is much more help in strikeouts. He is going to give you around 1k per ip, while Webb won't.

Wins are very inconsistent.

I'm really surprised Sabathia went #3.

Hamels for me...but 3 - 8 are all close so it doesn't matter much one way or the other, IMHO.

Well, you figure he gets more wins with the Yankees than he did with his stint between Cleveland/Milwaukee.

Same can be said for Peavy, if he leaves San Diego for the Cubs he probably should be ranked 3rd or 4th.

I got Peavy ranked at #4 but it was a tough choice between him and Webb. Personal choice but I stick Peavy before Webb partially because I rank Haren at #7 and there's a good possibility that I might take Peavy or Webb in the 3rd round while looking for a Hamels, Halladay, or Haren if I have to, in the 4th. If that ends up happening I'd much rather have Peavy and Haren than Webb and Haren since I wouldn't want my #1 and #2 SP to be on the same team due to possible issues with an SP's offense and bullpen - just my way spreading the risk a bit.

Actually, that's Haren at #8 - not sure how could have Haren at #4 Aussie; before Peavy, Webb, Hamels, and Halladay - to each his own I guess.
