He did but look at his home / away splits. It's a significant factor.

Bonderman: He's ranked pretty low everywhere, and I expect a pretty nice season.

He has great stuff and a great defense for a ground ball pitcher. The great Cards offense helps him pile up the wins. This could be the year he puts it all together and moves up to the elite.

he wont get anywhere enough k's to be elite.

escobar seems to be flying under the radar. either that or i am horribly misinformed about his health status.

Jeff Weaver? The guy put up sick WHIP last year and had decent enough k/9 and should win some games with the Angels :-?

and you can get him in round 10-12

When has Weaver ever won games? Despite that sick WHIP, he still cannot stop runs from scoring. With a WHIP that low, pitching in LA, his ERA was a crime. He will never be more than a .500 pitcher, at best.

Bruce Chen has not even been drafted in eight mock I have been monitering.

2005: 13-W, 3.831, 1.267, 133-K's

Jae Seo drafted in two of eight mocks, moving to LA can only help.

2005: 8-W, 2.590, 1.107, 59-K's in 14 starts

Chein-ming Wang drfated in five of eight mocks at an average 241.0 position.

2005: 8-W, 4.023, 1.246, 47-K's in 17 starts.

I think each of these guys is weak in an area but will bring a lot of positive numbers to the table for being not drafted or drafted real late.

Everone gets quality in the first 10's what you do with rounds 15-30 that separate the men from the boys. ;-D

You know, I never really considered Wood making an impact this season from the mound. I guess he can do anything.

Scott Baker should put together a nice year.

I am hesitant with Chris Young. I think people are pressing Petco too much.

Craig Hanson could slip into the closer role mid-may and make a big impact.

Lirano and Cain should be good.

Scott Olsen from Florida.

Rodrigo Lopez pitched really well in the WBC.

Javier Vazquez.

... and, of course, Brandon Wood.

I like Liriano, Duke, and Young as pitchers making a statement this year, although others may disagree with me. There's been much controversy over whether they will start and if they'll be able to make it in the majors.
