Right now I have it....
Santana
Prior
RJ

But if RJ does indeed go to the Yanks then he moves ahead of Prior IMO.

I would have to put prior ahead of schilling, if you are to say their injuries are a wash i think prior leapfrogs schilling and you can even make a case for pedro now pitching in shea

Ok now don't get me wrong, I am a huge Jacob Peavy fan. But may I ask, what is the rational as to rating him higher than Mark Prior? Is it injury concerns? Cus I clearly remember Peavy missing most of May and all of June last season. :-?

I mean Peavy will never have a K/9 like Prior, and if you banking on Jacobs ERA repeating, that seems a bit foolish don't ya think?

The difficulty here is trying to discuss Prior's value in December. It all depends on how he shakes out in spring training, obviously. Right now, I'd target him in round 3-4 as a late top-10 starter. But if he rolls into April at 100 percent, then I'm looking at

Santana
Prior
RJ
Schmidt

wv - dont you know - the only thing that matters is what they did last yr. Since Prior was injured and Peavy had a great season, its bound to continue that way. Nevermind that Prior was considered by most people one of the best young arms to enter the majors in a decade - he's "injury prone", see? Nevermind that the surgery he underwent is very common and the success rate for a full recovery is extremely high. Peavy wasnt injured and had a better season - therefore he should be ranked higher. Ben Sheets too. ;-D

For those with sarcasm detectors, they should be going off right about now.

yeah I was going to comment on that one too. But I figured it was best to just focus on the home front. :-°

Peavy is a solid young pitcher in a fantastic pitchers' ballpark. Prior is an amazing young pitcher coming off an injury in the toughest offensive division in the NL, possibly in the Majors. I will admit that Peavy was borderline above Prior, but I just trust him more this season for some reason...call it personal preference I guess.

For much the same reason I would take Peavy over Sheets or Zambrano. God knows all the pitchers has great talent but I am completely unsold on how good any of them will be in 2005. I err on the side of the park they pitch in and that puts Peavy ahead. From the looks of things with so many having Prior #1 or #2 I most likely won't even have to make that choice.
