And I think he's gonna do well again. Also keep an eye out for Paul Byrd, Barry Zito, Wade Miller, Matt Morris, Ben Sheets....

doesn't sheets have notoriously bad 2nd halves? although by the way he's playing now, i wouldn't doubt that he would be an excellent choice.

Ben Sheets has like a 5.01 ERA in the 2nd half, compared to a 3.1 something ERA in the first. I would be trying to deal Ben Sheets for a better pitcher. (Maybe Prior if his owner is angry at his slow start?)

Yep, he's always been a good second-half pitcher. Vazquez has a decent second-half history as well.

If healthy I'll go with the Wade Miller bandwagon. After a mostly injured 1st half in 2002, Miller's 2nd half #'s were stellar. His splits were nowhere near as impressive last year, but still a vast 2nd half improvement.

Jose Contreras is a low risk investment.

Kris Benson's has been improveing as of late, and I dont think his statline will improve. A trade to a contender could improve his 2nd hald trade value to owners that dont see pst wins however.

Brian Lawrence noticeably improved his ERA after last years break, which coincides with the season he is haveing.
