Postby BitterDodgerFan » Thu Mar 11, 2004 2:06 am

this is my ranking...feel free to rank them and add opinions. thanks.

meche (questionable 2nd half last yr)
burnett (will return by May supposedly..bit of a gamble)
weaver (getting rocked in spring though)
lieber (is he fully healed?)
lohse (plays a lot against weak AL central)
armas jr. (promising start last yr before injury)
affeldt (risky pick on a youngster)
eaton (sd's improved offense a plus and decent stuff)
cliff lee (can cleveland give him run support?)
lawrence (ace of the pads...but eaton has better upside imo)

wow you like eaton that much? he can rack up some Ks but his whip is still not that impressive...his spring isnt going to well either..

i like armas too but i think hes not at full health right now.

Its so hard to rank all these pitchers unless your peter gammons and have seen them all pitch.

If I were drafting and I was looking for a pitcher I'd go in this order.

Lieber (I'd win 10 games in that lineup)
Burnett (Is he out till may?)
Meche
Affeldt
Lohse
Eaton
Lawrence
Armas Jr
Weaver

the SD pitchers I just don't know, so thats why they are so low.

Actually I picked Weaver or Affeldt in all my drafts.
Not sure why I put the other two first.
I like them over the rest though I think, but really, all these guys have a chance, just take your guess and/or follow them closely and be ready to make a timely FA pickup!

IMO, no way Weaver goes at the bottom of that last. He is in a better park in a better city (for him, I think) and I think he bounces back.
Liber I think should be okay with that support, but no way he goes on top of that last, he might even lose his spoot in the rotation
