I have no problem with Gio Gonzalez being on the list and no Romero, but not a fan of LeBlanc. Romero's season really kind of came out of nowhere. Obviously he was a first round pick so he has some pedigree, but his minor league numbers were pretty unimpressive. Not sure how much is truth and how much is sensationalism, but I believe I've read in the past that sinkerballers often have a tougher time navigating the minors in a timely fashion and often struggle to control their sinkerball. If that's the case, maybe that's Romero's problem. That said, I'm not buying into him in the rough and tumble AL-East given his track record and surprising emergence last year.

Did anyone mention Ian Snell? I think he should be moved up about 5 spots - to about the 105th SP spot.

Yes, this is why I have him ranked in the top 10. Lee has been dominant the past two seasons and with that defense behind him and pitching in Safeco...watch out.


I sure hope so.....BUT remember he is losing that offensive Juggernaut to get him leads and WINS!!! I am a Lee owner, and hope he continues his success. :-]


Does Beltre's move to Boston have any effect on the defense behind Lee, or does Wilson's addition make it a wash? I can't recall if Beltre's return to Seattle was ever a possibility..

Figgins isn't as great as Beltre (nobody is close), but Figgins is still one of the top 3 defensive 3b in the league.

A full year of Wilson, plus Figgins, and Kotchman replacing Branyan at 1b more than make up for the defensive loss of Beltre.

LF will be a drop off from Endy Chavez to Balentein or Bradley, but their defense is still either the best or second best (behind Boston) in baseball.

+1. Toss in the fact he's no longer pitching in a band box, and at worst I think Lee's move is a wash. Perhaps you see fewer strikeouts as he won't be facing a pitcher and an NL 8 hitter, but he may see a better ERA as some (perhaps many) fly balls that would leave the ballpark in Philly will stay in the yard and be gobbled up in Safeco.
