I like Jake Peavy to stay healthy and pitch great for the whole year especially at Petco

He is probably more suited for relief but with the o's miserable rotation, he will be starting. A decent but not great sp.

Bonderman is terrible - you should forget about him now.
Burnett is injury plagued - definitely dont draft him.

is it working?

Everyone on this list sounds good to me with the certain exception of Milton. He's garbage.

Some more candidates:
Jose Acevedo
Jeff Francis
Rick Ankiel
Cliff Lee
Gavin Floyd
David Bush
Juan Cruz
Scott Kazmir??? Maybe only
Josh Beckett (never actually broken through except for 3 games sin the playoffs)
Runelvys Hernandez- The guy I am pimping thank you very much

I omitted Zack Greinke because I dont think he truly breaks thorugh this year, but look out.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

i will def take a chance on burnett... did you say injury proned? He had surgery to fix his arm and he did enough last year when he came back to convince me that he is healthy. A guy with the potential of 200 k's is worth the risk. Plus with all the big teams trying to get this guy who knows how many wins he could have.
