Right now I think Matt Garza is the best pitcher in the minors. While moving from A to AA, he's been simply dominating. Now I'm not saying he gets called up but his stats are just fantastic (Hamels-like) and no injury history. How much long will the Twins let Radke keep blowing games? I'd probably like to see Durbin in there before Garza, but I don't know if they can hold this kid back.

Anibal Sanchez, I would rank him ahead of Petit and anything could happen with the Marlins.

Craig Hansen next year when Papelbon becomes a starter.

Cesar Carrillo


Dustin McGowan is not projected to be an Ace type.

Nor is Sanchez, neither Olsen or Josh Johnson made the list and Sanchez is a step below those 2 but I like him better than Petit.

Hansen is a RP, we are talking about SP here.

No idea who Carrillo is...Fill me in?



Funny how Hansen is working on another pitch and starting all of his
minor league games
, huh? :-?


Carrillo is a stud imo, drafted out of UMiami i believe by SD and really is quite polished and has a chance to be very successful in Petco. He should be up sometime during midseason.

I see McGowan as a great #3 to Halladay & Burnett if he can harness his abilty and build up his stamina.


2 starts out of 5 last I checked

Absolutely, up to AA several weeks ago and is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a rediculous k rate 8-o

I know, you said he started all his game this year but I said he has 5 appearances and 2 of them are starts.

He started the last 2 if I am not mistaken.

I was nitpicking so let's just get over it. I personally think his future is in the pen and they are just trying to let him use more pitches.

Doesn't matter what you personally think his future is. They are making him develop his change up so that they can try him as a starter. His fastball/slider are electric and with a decent third pitch, he can be a top starter.
