Rank these SP please! WHIR

Postby Guzman24 » Wed Mar 16, 2011 5:40 pm

10 team H2H league, 6x6 QS and W's are counted for pitchers
We keep 6 players.

My current keepers are all bats: Cano, Zimmerman, Fielder, Holliday, Kemp, Dunn

I don't have a 1st round pick but have 3 picks in the 2nd round so I'm contemplating taking 3 SP's with all of those picks.

Any thoughts on that strategy and how would you rank these arms?

Price
Hamels
Hanson
Feliz
Latos
Gallardo
Weaver
Cain
Haren
Oswalt
Scherzer
Carpenter
Oswalt
Buchholz

Thanks in advance! :)

#1 Price (young, talented, nasty stuff, but plays in the AL East)
#2 Weaver (Coming off a great year, high K's)
#3 Hanson ( Headed for a breakout year, look at his 2nd half #'s last year)
#4 Gallardo ( Looking at another solid year, high K's)
#5 Carpenter (Potentially higher, but injuries are always his problem plus he's not getting any younger)
#6 Oswalt (Always solid, now in a sick rotation with a solid team around him)
#7 Hamels (Same as Oswalt, but a bit younger. Has some head-case issues though)
#8 Cain (Always been solid, gets you into the 7th with a chance to win, but has been lucky in the past)
#9 Buchholz (Love the ERA, hate the K's, plays in AL East)
#10 Haren ( Always a very good 1st half pitcher and bad in the 2nd half, now in the AL= not as good)
#11 Latos (Only one year of solid work, could be in for some injuries or a fall back year)
#12 Scherzer ( Similar to Latos, young and injury possibility, but with high potential)

It's tough to make these type of rankings, but that is how i'd have them for the time being. They're all pretty close though, I'd put #'s 1-4 pretty close, followed by the rest a little further back.

I doubt I would take 3 SP in the 2nd round. I would possibly take two of these especially if the first 4 were still available.
