Yep Thomson had a great season. A pretty convincing argument could be made that his first half was better than his second half (skill-wise, not fantasy-wise). The only reason his ERA was that high was because hits were falling in and he was allowing too many HR's. His K/BB actually got worse in the second half. If he learned how to stop giving up the long-ball (if anyone could teach him... it's Mazzone) then he could easily be a top notch pitcher. An ERA of 3.50 wouldn't surprise me. And he's probably going later in drafts than bums like Matt Morris and Kris Benson.

That's awesome. Not to go off on a tangent, but where do you get your stats? I was able to query last season on my CBS account but they've dumped it now.

Yup. He went up .287 between pre- and post-Break.

Unless you're in a six-team league, yes.

For what it's worth, I found this list with 2nd half players listed on them:

http://www.baseballdocs.com/overall_rankings.html

I haven't had a chance to check them all, but it saves a lot of up-front work.

Appreciate the posts on this thread.
