RJ shouldnt be 6. He's breaking down and injury concerns should warrant him outside of the top 15 imo.

First off this is a composite of a bunch of different sources compiled together. Not my opinion. It is just a rough sketch of how the SP are ranked. I agree about RJ. I wouldn't want to draft him but if he dropped to me in the 5th round+ I would take him. As for Lowe and Buehrle, I think that they should stay in there. I could see maybe Garcia and D.Willis(sophmore slump) being dropped.
Thanks for the input guys.
Anyone else?

exactly my thoughts...Schmidt is a top 5 I'd put him where Vazquez is, he still has to prove himself a little bit. He need an ERA right around 3.00 to be that high not just a K pitcher. If you notice the top 5 SP really have ERAs in the 2s...

I agree w/bumping Schmidt up a bit and maybe Maddux but I think that Pettitte is big time overrated and hasn't done enough to justify moving him up.
Anybody else want to give it a shot?

I'm wary of Willis, but it has nothing to do with a so called sophomore slump. I won't take him because of the way he got absolutely lit up in the second half. He had an amazing start, but the most recent stats show that he's been figured out, or tired out quickly.
