i'm all over Sale, and to a lesser extent Bard. If those ratios translate over his outings as a starter then he'll be a fine asset to have.

You really want Sale more than the others, IMHO

Bard is a nice dark horse to really excel at a high level once he fully converts back but the risk is big hes already having some health issues but I think if all these guys could magically with a wave of the wand be successful starters tomorrow I think Bard has the highest ceiling. In the end I think he ends up back in the bullpen. Heres hoping though as a Sox fan he can help the rotation.

Feliz I worry just how much he relies on the fastball. Is that a natural thing for a reliever to throw more of those? sure -but even for a closer he really went heavy on the FB

As others have mentioned though if the prices are too high on any you dont want to invest too heavily as theres already some risk with each and the higher the price/investment the higher the risk

Check out Tom Tango's "Rule of 17"

http://www.insidethebook.com/ee/index.p ... 1953_2008/

Basically, use the “rule of 17”: difference in BABIP is 17 points higher as starter. K/PA is 17% higher as reliever. And HR per contacted PA is 17% higher as starter. Walk rate is FLAT
