I have been seeing this guy drafted in the 16th-21st rounds in my fantasy drafts, despite the fact that in his 3 spring training starts he has allowed 14 hits, 10 earned runs, 8 walks, 11.25ERA, and only 3K's in 8 innings. This guy looks like crap.

Well, you're naive to think he's crap, I agree-- but you're not naive to notice his spring. Remember, this spring comes on a last 6 weeks of pretty rough stuff last season. He's always had trouble with his control. He'll be good; he'll be excellent-- eventually-- but he may not be ready to bust out into stardom this year.

i wouldn't go that far aa calling him naive, just misinformed about ST stats.

The only thing one should really look at durring ST are the injuries... Hitters stats are wack becuase they are facing minor league pitchers, and Major league pitchers are still working things out. ;-D

I completely agree that Harden is overrated right now.

He was shelled last yr.
He is still getting shelled this yr.
Whats to get excited about?

Give me Armas Jr. - at least hes proven he can pitch in the bigs.
