Mark me down for slightly worse. I don't trust him nearly enough to take him in the first round like a lot of people do.

It would be tough to improve on last year. I say he has to go down a little doesn't he?

no one did what he did for 4 months last year. i'd be stunned if he did it again. slightly worse here.

Put me down for slightly worse (which of course is still awesome).

I'm ashamed to admit it. But after the first month in my league last year his ERA was over 5.00, which was my trigger point, and I dropped him. Then as my luck would run, he came on like gangbusters. If you draft him, be patient and stay with him!

I agree with the majority that he is not going to repeat 04. He is a phenomenal pitcher for sure and has a bright future ahead of him but I don't think he can keep it at this level for another year. Sorry. Ain't gonna happen.

I said equal... he won't have quite the same torrid second half he did last year, but I don't think he'll have the same awful start either, so all things considered the numbers will be similar.

this was probably around the same time that I got him for Brandon Webb ;-D ... I rode that transaction to 1st place. He really was amazing last year, not only were his numbers great, but his dual eligibility really came in handy.
