all good ones, Barry Zito is a prime 2nd half man, but i don think he ever had a 1st half this bad,

W Miller is a 2nd half junkie, pure filthy for some reason

obviously, your prior type people are going to be up there. after his july-long injury last year, prior came out and abso-lutely tore stuff up en route to an 18-6 2.43 finish.

randy wolf was a notoriously great 2nd half guy, he was -edited- brilliant in the 2nd half of 02, but last year he wasnt all that, but for like 2-3 seasons before he was, so keep an eye out for him if he's alive, healthy, etc.

Jul 12 A's starter Barry Zito pitched well against the Indians on Sunday, but not good enough to notch his first win in his last six outings. Zito gave up only two earned runs, but he walked four, got no run support, threw a season-high 123 pitches in seven innings, and fell to 4-7 on the year. "Pitching well is not cutting it anymore," he told the Oakland Tribune. "Sucking up losses is not the result I want. I have to get better and make better pitches." The loss capped off a tough week for Zito, after he was shelled in Boston on Wednesday and was the subject of a barrage of criticism and trade rumors in Bay Area papers.


Views: This typically wouldn't constitute good news for Zito's fantasy owners, but the All-Star break could not have come at a better time. First, he'll get to take some time off and clear his head. Second, he has traditionally been one of baseball's best second-half hurlers. After the break, he has a 36-14 career record, and ranks first among all major league starters in ERA (2.54) and opponents' batting average (.199). If you're hurting for starters, it's definitely worth low-balling Zito's owner, as he's probably fed up with his lackluster record, 4.47 ERA, and 1.57 WHIP. He's definitely worth adding if you can get him at a severe discount.

All of those are great choices. I think Wood will come around after the injury, he pretty much blanked STL before the AS break, hopefully a good sign of things to come. (Glad the Cards only have to play the Cubs twice after the break. :-D)
