Nice list. Good to see Escobar get his props. He should win 15 games with 185 K's this year.

However, my darling Jeremy Bonderman needs to move up about 10 spots right above Radke (who is also money, don't get me wrong). He strikes people out and is showing flashes of utter dominance. He has better stuff than many pitchers above him. He escaped so many jams this week against boston this week, and that shows that he has a strong makeup and mentality. He is not fazed when things don't go his way, he buckles down and gets people out. Add in the fact that he's 22 years old and pitches in the weakest hitting division in baseball, and you've got a gem. Not that this board is unfamiliar with Jeremy Bonderman!

I was going to comment, but it'd be faster if I just typed my own rankings (organized by tiers):
1. Santana
2. R. Johnson
3. P. Martinez
4. Schmidt
5. Oswalt
6. Sheets
7. Prior
8. Hudson
9. Schilling

10. Halladay
11. Beckett
12. Burnett
13. Harden
14. Peavy
15. Clemens
16. C. Zambrano
17. Mulder
18. Smoltz

19. Mussina
20. Ol. Perez
21. Colon
22. Wood

23. Pavano
24. Vazquez
25. Od. Perez

That's probably what my top-25 would be.......

Peavy seems a bit low on your list Warrick95. What else does he have to do to prove he belongs with the big boys?

Peavy is far too low on Warlicks, and maybe a slot of two too low on the original posters (below Zambrano?). Also, whoever would want Kerry Wood is out of their mind.
