That seems really optimistic. I would be shocked if he breaks past 15 wins and has an ERA under 3.50. There certainly is the potential that he couldl do better than that, but I think the potential of a repeat of '04 is far greater than a return to Cy Young form.

My fear with him is the fact that hitters were feasting on his curve ball last year. And that is his bread and butter. He either needs to start mixing up his pitches better or come up with another pitch. The 17 wins is too much to expect. If he can hide his curve, he can be somewhere between last year and his Cy Young year.

I think 17 wins is too high. I have him projected winning 14 with 169 K's / 3.56 ERA & a WHIP of 1.259.

I think you are dreaming. He might post a 3.3 ERA, 1.23 WHIP after the AS break, but before the AS break you are looking at a 4.5+ ERA - 1.35WHIP guy. Never draft Zito - trade for him after his slow start.
