7th round? I probably won't value him that high, but I'm sure some will.

5x5 12 team, I would select him at 100+.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Strange so far. While he will probably help you more fantasy-wise as a starter than a closer, his draft position is decreasing.

i would think he would go around round 7 which would be in the 80's or so...but i would not be suprised to see someone grab him in round 5 or so......

I'd say 9th or 10th round. I doubt his shoulder makes it throught the season.

Because there is a shortage of players who could match his output as a relief pitcher but a lot of guys who can equal his output as a starter.

That's a really good question. Could be a steal in the fifth round.

Smoltz 37 yrs old 2,700 IP career
Schilling 38 yrs old 2,812 IP career
RJ 41 yrs old 3,368 IP career
Clemens 42 yrs old 4,500 IP career


Is there any reason that Smoltz shouldn't be in the same league as these other 3? ERA, WHIP, k/9 very similar to these 3, he just hasn't pitched as many innings. Is that a bad thing? For me its a positive. His elbow problems were back in 1999 and he is clearly over them now. He averaged 15 wins/ season over 11 years as a starter and got a Cy Young. He is flying under the radar and is a great sleeper pick IMO.
