no way. prior will go at least 2 rounds before mussina IMO. fantasy players love upside and that's what prior has. mussina was injured last year and he's not young anymore, onwers worry about that, worry about when his numbers will start going downhill. i think mussina will be alright next season, but he won't, and he shouldn't be taken before prior.

I'll further the consensus that he will be back to normal. But this thread indicates that everyone thinks this, so that doesn't make him much of a sleeper, does it?

I'm pretty much on board with this thinking. He was pitching like the Moose of old the last month of the season and looked OK in the playoffs too.

I was hoping he really was a sleeper, but it doesn't look like anyone here is sleeping on him...

He'll be better next year, but it seems as though everyone here is thinking he'll return to his former self completely. I want him to prove it for a season before I draft him....b/c his draft value will pretty much be the Mussina of old. To me he's almost overrated this year.
