If Holland didn't have an arm injury I would put him first. But he does.

Hellickson - but I now of a couple of people that think he could be injury prone in the majors
Holland - I still like him
Hudson

projectprospect.com doesn't like Hellickson because they feel his mechanics (and injury history) could lead to an injury. They do like his stuff but they don't see him being durable over the long-term. I think it was enough for them to even drop Hellickson out of their top 100 this offseason. And they have been blasted on their own forum for it. It's not something that I consider too much in my ranking of Hellickson but I do consider it a little.

if people are complaining of hollands home park then what the hell are you why ignore the AL EAST where Hellickson will be pitching? i'd much rather have the unfavorable home park then have Holland face the Yank's and Sox's muliple times. I'd rather own Brian Matusz then Hellickson off talent alone and look how thats going.

also Holland was lights out in AAA all year and played up to par till his injury in the show this season. They rushed him to the "show" last year which is why he didn't fair well, so to expect a pitcher to go from minimal innings in AA and dominate in MLB is actualy ridiculous.

Holland is a much much better prospect then Hellickson
