i agree on Pavano. even if he stays in the NL. apart from a low babip which i believe to be due to luck/good D, the main thing that kept his era down was the low HR/9 which will go up outside Pro player, especially in the AL.

<pre>
K/9 BB/9 HR/9 BABIP ERA
02-03 6.0 2.5 1.0 .303 4.65
y2004 5.6 2.0 .65 .283 3.00
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

If Pavano is able to get back together with Alyssa Milano then I think he could break into my top 10 fantasy starters.

I, for the first time, drafted a pitcher in the second round last year, and I won't do it again. Too much risk.
I'm back. Sorta.

As did I, and Prior screwed me.

Santana is probably the only one, and I wouldn't want to take him that high. On a side note, is anyone as hesitant about Santana as I am? I mean the guy had a great season no doubt, but there's no way he's this good is he? :-/


I cant think of anything to knock him down a peg other than last years second half is all but impossible to top. He is an elite pitcher. I dont take pitchers before the 2nd round anymore, but if I were to break he would probably be the one I went for.

Santana is a mid/late 2nd rounder next year in my book. Though I would imagine he'll be drafted by that time.

I would maybe take him in the second round, but I can't see any way that he will be there that late.

yes pavano has fallen off my top 10 charts due to the loss of milano but zito has moved to #10 due to being seen with Ms. Milano quite a bit the last couple of weeks...... :-D :-D
