Texas has always had a juggernaught offense. The Angels have been steadily improveing their offense over the past few years with FA and their farm system (Is Beltran a possibility
), and the Mariners added some pretty top notch firepower with Beltre and Sexon.
A couple of years ago in that division, even after last year he would still have be a fine #2 pitcher. Now, and it hurts to say as a die hard Oakland fan, dont draft him as more than a #3 fantasy starter.
Painfully, I agree with the general consensus of this thread.
