well, i think part of the reason you haven't gotten too many responses is b/c pitchers with low era's, low whip's, with good K's, and good wins aren't "midlevel" pitchers!

That said, maybe someone like Cliff Lee? I don't know what else to suggest... Odalis Perez if you step into a time machine and go back 3 years. After that, well, I use my stat tables (which I don't have with me right now) so I'm not much more help...

There are no steroids in baseball. Just players Chuck Norris has breathed on.

Danny Haren. Should go in rounds 8 to 12 depending on your league size, and has a decent chance wind up with numbers better than that.

Ya, Carlos Silva doesn't get many K's, but he's a good era/whip guy. Might win a few more. If you want guys for lower dollar values who'll give you good ratios, you generally have to avoid guys who won a lot of games in the last year or two. John Patterson of the Nationals may be one you can get value for, unless your league is full of savvy vets. Doug Davis of Milwaukee? More of a K's guy, but may fly under the radar a bit as he didn't win that many last time out.

Any decent pitcher on the nats/padres/mets/any other team playing in a heavy pitchers park.

John Patterson and Chris Young pop into my head.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

millwood....not great K/WIN but he did win the AL era title and gets little respect. that cleveland team is a good young one and he could be looking at


15 wins ERA 3-3.25 150 K 1.25 WHIP....pretty solid numbers for where you could get him.

If he was in cleveland i would agree. But the ballpark is a HITTERS park. Maybe the best hitters park in baseball. Millwood gets lit up this year Chan Ho style.
Barry Bonds for US president.
