well i am gonna go ahead and say that they are worth it...i personally just dont feel comfortable without an ace what so ever...so i pretty much do best player avalibe while tring to land the best pitcher i can in the first 3 rounds and would definatly take oswalt or zito in the 2nd round assuming i got that big bat or somebody like helton or mags is not gone...its all about the flow but i have to have an ace B-)
i appreciate your input!

Zito yes, Oswalt no. Oswalt is gonna have an injury plagued season, just watch.

Why is that? Certaintly any sp is a injury waiting to happen, and Oswalts size is a concern. But just as concerning is the ton of innings on Zito as a 22-24 year old.

Hootie nailed it. Any starting pitcher is an injury waiting to happen. Unless you can get the big three, i wouldn't draft a starter till round 4-5-6. Zito is the hot A this year, but Hudson could(some say should) outpreform him. Oswalt is good, as are the others we are talking about, but to answer the main question here, all these guys are probably going to early. Year in and year out, after the big three, the second tier pitchers move up and down quite a bit. There are probably 10-12 pitchers that you could throw a blanket over, pick one and have as good a shot at having the fourth best starter as anyone. Use these early round picks to solidify your bats, which are more predictable.

johnnyblack, i think you got the wrong guy. davegod was quoting people and hardly said anything, other than ROTFLMAO.

It was Boomhower who was talking authentic prairie gibberish. That's the new FLB language. Better learn it, yo. Ghetto was last year's slang. Now it's prairie talk that en vogue.

Easy answer. Zito has a larger frame than Oswalt. His body can take the innings. Also, Oswalt is more of a power pitcher than Zito. Zito has a very easy delivery, so there is less wear on his arm. He may have put in a lot of innings over the last couple of years, but his pitch counts are always very low.
