Guzman/Brownlie/Pinto for the Cubs could be good if they could ever get over the injury problems.

Anyway my top 4 in no particular order....
Hernandez/Nageotte SEA
Jackson/Miller LA
Meyer/Capellan ATL
Hamels/Floyd PHI

The Jackson/Miller duet, should actually be a trio. Chad Billingsley will be ranked higher by BA this year than Miller. Write that down, unless your in my league. Actually, it may even be a quartet, if yhou care to throw Jonathon "The Bull" Broxton in the mix.

I'd rank them in order:

Jackson/Miller/Billingsley
Hamels/Floyd
Hernandez/Nageotte (Not so much for Nags, but primarily for Hernandez)
It's easy, fun, and 100% safe!

He had an off year in 2004, but a year ago Joel Hanrahan was also considered a great prospect for LA

As far as Rosario goes all the guy needs is some semblance of control and I think he could make an impact in the majors. He might not be quite as ready for the majors as Arnold but has a much higher upside IMO.


He had the TJ in May they don't expect him to make it to the majors next year and have him scheduled to start in A and get to AA by June.

Isn't TJ like and ACL where they say it pushes you back 2 years?

But don't overlook Chacin.

In AA AAA and MLB last year he went 19-3 with a 2.57 ERA as a 23 yr old.

As I said in another thread, he relies on a cutter as his out pitch and doesn't have overpowering velocity, so ML hitters may figure him out. Still, he has remarkable control and poise and they just may not figure him out, at least not completely.


I'm not sure if Im sold on Chacin. He had a nice debut, but I don't think a pitcher's first few starts tell much of a story. Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd rather see a player pan out over time then have a great first game. Often it takes them a while to acclimate and a good first start or two can be a fluke. With Chacin, I don't think he can K enough hitters to be successful. Once they pick up on him and start smackign the ball around in SkyDome he'll be in trouble. His K/BB ratio was 2.2 in AA last year, when he was 24. And his K/9 ratio was 6.9. In the majors that would be OK but not for a 24 year old in AA, at least IMO.
