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.


He's also pitching in easily baseball's best offensive division and has logged over 500 innings on his arm the last two seasons. He has more question marks than a lot of the guys on this list.

Peavy is allegedly going to leave SPings cushiest job.
Hamels is quality but a tiny bit lucky in '08
Halladay is amazing but I don't believe in his K/9 spike.
Webb is also amazing, but Haren will kill him for Ks.

Just for '09 fantasy I think Haren beats all these guys . I feel he's primed and ready to go. ;-D

Cool enough bro, if I end up drafting Haren I'll keep those words in mind. Good point about the possibility of Peavy getting traded too, no doubt that home field helps his numbers.

To me Haren and Webb are extremely similar, Webb stable and Haren with more upside. If Haren continues to keep the ball in the park and sustains the K/9 than yes, he just might be the #4. I just worry that his HR numbers will rise again, not sky rocket up, but rise enough to leave him as a lowly top 10 pitcher instead of a top 5.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

3-year Averages (standard 5x5 stats)

Webb 18-8, 185 K, 3.13/1.17
Peavy 13-10, 207 K, 3.15/1.15
Hamels 12-7, 172 K, 3.43/1.14

Peavy and Webb are a little more established, you can feel real comfortable with what they'll bring, but Hamels is still getting better. Tough choice for me, I think I might take a different one of the three on different days. Peavy was more chioce today, I feel his Ks are going to be there, and wins flucuate. But I can't find fault selecting any of the three here.

Exactly why i won't touch him this year. People are underestimating the NL effect and forgetting about the slow start to last year.

While drafting for wins is a mistake for the most part, does anyone think Peavy will win even 13 games this year? The Padres may not win 50 games all year.
