as your #3 :-? wow, you must like to draft pitchers early and have a stud staff to get czam as your #3.


Either that, or i'm just not as sold as most other people are on him. If i was able to take him at 3, id grab him, but probably nothing higher. I still would like to see another year of what he did in 04.


Then look no further than 2003 :-D

This guy has had 2 amazing years in a row... and he improved even more last year IMO. Hell 2002 was a pretty good rookie year I'd say. He's very under-rated.

I stand corrected! :-D

Ok, maybe its just his age and that he plays for Dusty Baker that has me a little worried about him. I dunno..... :~(

I don't know anything about drafts because all we've ever done is straight league drafts. I have him in the last year of his contract at 6 and plan on extending him to 11 and keeping him next season through 2006. He's very underrated in my opinion.

15 + wins, ERA under 3

A phenominal pitcher, take him from 3-5 rounds.

i keep thinking the league will catch up to him but they never do. the only thing i am concerned about is getting abused by dusty baker but its hard to incorporate that since pretty much all pitchers have a certain degree of injury risk. i dont see him topping 200k's though. more like 180.

This is how i see it as well, CZ = stud! wherever oli perez or peavy get drafted, CZ should be up there if not close behind them.
Without ME it would just be AWESO.

Heh. Last year (18 team yahoo H2H league) I used my first 4 picks on starters.

1 - Jason Schmidt
2 - Kerry Wood
3 - Roy Oswalt
4 - Johan Santana

But like an idiot I traded Oswalt for Podsednik in the first week.

I got Huff and G. Anderson for Zambrano in the middle of last year.
