He will either be better than Mark Prior was last season, or he'll be worse than Al Leiter was last season. Anything in between is also possible.

For the record, I think he'll be a top 5 or 6 pitcher, maybe even top three, but I'm sure many would advise against drafting him. Yahoo just put out a press clipping about him today, in which they said the reports are that he has looked "dominant" this Spring. They even went as far as to say that they are comfortable calling him the best pitcher in the NL again.

That's maybe a bit too much for me, but I think he's worth a gamble maybe even as high as round 2. ESPN has him ranked 13th overall among all players and 2nd among pitchers. If you're a gambling man, he's a high risk, but VERY high reward pick.

I took him with the 31st pick. I had Prior and Pujols already as keepers. I feel like baseball is a gamble anyway and why not have 2 of the most dominate SP in baseball on my team. Could not pass on him there. Good luck to you what ever you decide.

Word is that they shoot his knee with a sort of lubricant to act in place of cartilage. So far so good..I drafted him in the 3rd round last weekend

Also drafted RJ in the 3rd round, number 25 overall. I'm counting on big things from him, but trying not to be too disappointed if it doesn't happen. I felt like he was a bargain at that stage of the draft.

I seem to be one of the few guys here that play in an auction league. That said- I would pay up to $25 for RJ and hope it panned out- but considering he went for $45 last year- that is not really saying much.

that must've been really painful to have paid $45 for him last year!
