I guess though that it's kind of a consistency vs. upside thing. Prior has more upside while Zambrano's more likely to do about what he usually does?
I wasn't concerned about Prior until ST wore on, now I get nervous and hide under my blankey when his name is mentioned.
CZam scares me some too, as his back bothers him and he's thrown tons of innings the last several years. I'm avoiding both this year (unless either falls considerably in a draft, but neither have yet.)
the weight loss was SUPPOSED to 'cure' the back problems but dropping 10% off a guy who depends on the action of his pitches a great deal makes me nervous. Oh well, hazards of 'homer picks'...
