No, but pitching remains a total mess to deal with in Fantasy. How many "Safe and elite" SPs are there?

I have the following as safe elite SPs (meaning their is a high probability thay are likely to stay healthy and produce):

Santana
Schilling
Schmidt
C. Zambrano
Hudson
Oswalt


Maybe I missed one or two and you can always debate some others like Pedro and and RJ as to their liklihood of staying healthy or Sheets in just how elite a SP he is while pitching in Milw, but there are not a lot.

Exactly. My list if they're all relatively healthy would probably include in no particular order:
Schilling -- only issue is age IMO
Oswalt
Schiling
RJ -- only issue is age IMO
Sheets
Schmidt
Prior
Santana -- with some hesitation

I'm sure there are quite a few more, that's all I could get off the top of my head.

my question would be, where do you start to draft these guys. would you jump on any in the mid 2nd round, or wait to see which would be available mid 3rd? how long do you wait to get your ace? :-?

I'll take a pitcher like Santana or maybe even Prior or Schilling in the 2nd, I always draft a hitter in the 1st. I would prefer to have a stud pitcher in the 1st 4 rounds though.

I have never been a believer in getting pitching the the 1st 2 rounds and the situation has gotten worse not better the past couple of years inthat respect. Lost of mid-level talent that can be come by mid to late in the draft or early in the season as a FA. Only Santana warrants a round 2 consideration. All other are round 3 material at best. I think people are fine waiting until round 4 to get their ace in most mixed leagues. Get the sticks first.

And Prior with his injury history is not a safe bet at all and should not be risked first 3 rounds over someone else.
