Ha, one year and that equates to him being the KG/Holmes of baseball? It's pretty easy to know he isn't even close to that in the baseball world. KG and Holmes were by far the most valuable cause no one could do what they did, personally I don't see that being the case for Santana. If healthy, Prior, Randy, Schmidt, etc will have similiar numbers to Johan. Not only that but you still choose hitters in front of Santana with out even thinking, by no means is he the 1st pick.

Did you even read the argument?

It seems like you read the title then smacked reply.

If you did read it, you would see the case made for why Santana is supperior to the names listed in your rebuttal.

I read it, but I'm sorry if someone in bball or football puts up the best stats in a while (during the last 8 weeks or however much time that would be in bball) you still don't automatically consider them the easy choice for #1. In other sports they don't have positions that are more riskier then others, baseball does and Santana just happens to play one of them. It's a nice arguement, but you need ore then half a year to make any type of case for him going #1.

I agree that Santana is the #1 pitcher to draft this year and a worthy 1st round pick. But there are at least 3 players that I'd rather have.

I think its a valid argument - I have Johan in my top 5 right now, but I just think RJ is gonna have a huge season in NY.

Both of them are ahead of ARod.

For what its worth, I have the sixth pick in my draft, I want Santana, and I'm prepared to trade down to get him. He was on my team last year, and I cannot emphasize enough how important he was to my team, even if he does play one in every five days. Like the article says, the numbers speak for themselves. I watched him pitch almost every game last year, and that fearlessness I saw makes me believe he's going to stay at the top. I'm expecting HUGE things, better than last year. Having a guy like that at the top of your fantasy rotation takes the pressure off your entire staff, and shrewd players will be able to assemble a strong foundation behind him

RJ to me is an injury risk, and more so, I hate having Yankees on my fantasy squad (although Shef and Matsui gave me plenty to cheer about last year)

What about a year and a half? Santana has been posting rock solid numbers since he became a starter after the '03 all-star break.
