I was referring to the previous start vs the Astros. At the time of my post, he hadn't pitched yet yesterday.
List, in no order:
add in a healthy Oswalt, a healthy Beckett and maybe a healthy Brown and that puts Zambrano at best at 14
Come to think of it, I'd also take Mussina over him, so 15th.
I like this list. You said "in no order," but I think you were just saying that to keep things simple; that list is approximately in order.
In any case, you are right, all of those pitchers should go before Zambrano. I might take exception to the healthy Beckett. I still haven't seen Beckett pitch like he did last postseason.
I hate to rate them right now, but if I really HAD to do a top 10, I'd go:
1, 1A. RJ/Schmidt (can't separate them right now, Schmidt is probably the better performer right now, but RJ has been pretty darn good and has a little better WHIP and probably will have more Ks.)
3. Prior (let's see if he's all the way back)
4. Schilling (concerned about the ankle, but he'll probably get more Ws than any other SP when it's all said and done, still my pick for AL Cy Young, should be a very similar season to Halladay last year, with SLIGHTLY better ERA/WHIP/Ks, very slightly)
5. Pedro (can't figure out some of the struggles he's had this season, but he's still no worse than #5 on this list, period.)
6. Halladay (I think he will return to form now, but will he still get the Ws? If your league counts CGs, he should be ranked even higher.)
7. Vazquez (all the ingredients of a fantasy stud, ERA/WHIP/W/Ks. Tremendous pitcher finally getting some exposure outside of Montreal.)
8. Wood (only this low because he is ON the DL right now. He's an elite K guy and will be right around 3.00 and 1.05 with his ERA and WHIP respectively, and that Cub team will get him Ws)
9. Hudson (very consistent, bullpen's best friend, but not a good K rate, really his only blemish)
10. Mulder (same as above, I just value him a little bit less, partially because of the injury last year).
