Depends on League #:

10 teams: closer to 5th starter IMO at best
12 teams+: could be 4th starter

He'll get helped by that ballpark.

I don't think the entire SF organization handles their young pitchers well -- which is why you haven't seen them develop anything themselves. Pitchers successes have been elsewhere.

I actually believe that he will do well this year. I've been able to get him pretty cheap in my drafts so far. :-)

I think fourth starter is about right for him.

I'm kind of eye-ing him and John Thomson as my potential sleeper 5th starter in a ten team 4x4 ESPN league. One of these two will probably be available after the 19th round. Tons of upside w/ JW and the downside isn't that bad.

I was deciding between him and CC Sabathia for my draft. I went with CC. what kind of year do you think CC will have? does he have break out potential?

CC has as much breakout potential as any pitcher for Cleveland could have. That's not an insult to him, he's very talented; unfortunately he's talented for a bad team. Williams will probably win more games, CC will strike out more. Have a gut feeling that CC will have a slightly lower ERA; about equal WHIP.
Couldn't really go wrong whichever way you went on that one.

CC isn't on that bad of a team, with the maturation and health of certain players the Indians could be good enough to get CC 15 Wins in the AL's worst division

Some more facts about Sabathia, who I'm high on this year.

Height: 6'7"
Weight: 290
Holy crap!

He's consistant.

He had the 5th worst run support among American League starting pitchers last year.

He was named, but did not appear, to his 1st career All-Star Team.

He led the team in wins for the third straight season (all 3 in his big league career) and led the team in innings, strikeouts, starts & ERA for the second straight season.

His .632 (43-25) career winning % is the 12th highest career winning % among current ML pitchers w/at least 60 decisions.

His 3.60 ERA was 10th among AL pitchers, his 3.09 home ERA was 6th and his 3.38 night ERA was 8th in the AL.

His 9 CS against while pitching was T4th among AL hurlers (5SB against).

His 105 pitchers per start ranked 3rd among AL starters behind Joel Pineiro (109) and Barry Zito (107).

His 8.65 hits allowed per 9.0IP was 15th among AL hurlers.
