Am I crazy for thinking Byrd might be this years Carpenter?

I know it is spring, but the guy looks solid. I figure if Sele can have get 9 wins last year...this guy has to have a shot at close to 14 wins.

Tell me why I am crazy.

I see where you are coming from, but Carpenter was solid last year, and I am not big on Byrd at all. But with pitching, you never know. I would not put money on it, but I cant say it wont happen. Whew, I just ran a big circle around that question!!

It's ok dude you can say I am certifiable. I feel Carpenter is a little strong.....no way will be ace on staff next year.....but I do think he could have 14 0r 15 wins, sub 4 era, with 120 + K's

I agree with that offense and bullpen behind him he I can see him winning 15 this year. Not bad for someone you can get later in the draft.

OK...I see this. I agree, no way he will be an ace, but those stats are very obtainable. Ever since last years Cards SP, I believe anything is possible!?!?!

Byrd is very much a late rd sleeper right now. The projections you had for him are obtainable.

Yeah I agree, I think he's quite satisfactory in a 12 team league.

Byrd has had flashes in the past and is not the world's worst pitcher. However, that last start of 2004 sort of left a bad taste in a lot of owner's mouths.

14-15 wins is possible. He's not that good but he does have excellent control. Certainly a decent late round pick-up in a 12 team league.
