I'll concede Schmidt might be a little high, but otherwise I stand by my top 10 at this point in time.



i completely agree. that has long been my favorite baseball nickname but i can hardly find anyone that knows about it. we gotta spread it to the masses, its genius

Wow do you like the young guys. There is no way that Reyes and Cain will be top pitchers in 07. Next year they will both be solid, but 08 should be the year that they really break out. (If they do.) ;-D

2) Kazmir is going to be better than Johan. Serious.



the mets fave up on him because his mechanics seemed to indicate that he is due for a serious injury down the road. and he is throwing a lot of pitches so far this season...i doubt that he will ever be better than johan.

IMHO

It takes some faith, but I think that Prior and Harden will be top-10 next year. Fortunately, I have another 1/2 of a season to figure it out before I have to turn my keeper list in. The thing about Prior and Harden is that they have proven their worth, the only question is if they are healthy. And in that case, I consider Prior or Harden being healthy a better bet than someone like Kazmir becoming an ace next year. Yeah, his stuff is awesome, but how many pitchers have had awesome stuff but never gotten the whole package together. At least we know that Prior and Harden are the whole package when healthy.

I noticed Jered Weaver isn't coming up in conversations... which, don't get me wrong, it's fine by me, with his demotion and all (can anyone explain to me why the Angels ever did that?). But it also proves to me that i may be able to draft him later next season and get great value out of him, a la Jeremy Bonderman this year.

santana
pedro
peavy
halladay
oswalt
liriano

kazmir
