1. Felix Hernandez- Should win 15 games or more with close to 200 K's & an ERA under 4. Can probably get him cheaper after his sub par season this year. If he falls past round 7 or 8 grab him.
2. Matt Cain- Has the ability to be a top 10 pitcher. I think he'll get 12-15 wins with the weak Giants lineup, with 180-190 K's & an ERA around 3.50 & a whip around 1.20
3. C.C. Sabathia- Tribe will be better next year, and I can see him getting around 18 wins. He'll strike out almost a batter an inning, should end up with 175-185 K's. He'll probably have an ERA a dash over 3 and a whip a dash over 1. Should be a CY Young Candidate.
4. Scott Olsen- Has been on fire since the break, and I think he could be a poor mans King Felix next year. Around 12-15 wins with 160-180 K's.
5. Dontrelle Willis- You might be able to get him cheap. I have seen some people ranking him around 25th-30th in next years SP rankings. I think the Marlins will be good next year and he should get his 13-18 wins, 140-160 K's, an an ERA in the mid 3's.
6. Kelvim Escobar- He should get around 150 K's and 13 wins with a very good ERA and WHIP numbers around 3.30 and 1.20.
7. Jason Jennings- He is finally reaching his potential. The Rockies should win 80-85 games next year, and Jennings with any luck could have 15-18 wins. Coors is no longer a hitters park like it once was, and Jennings ERA and whip numbers could be around 3.20/1.10 respectivly.
8. Greg Maddux- You can probably take him in the last 3 or 4 rounds. He is going to get your atleast 13-15 wins every year if not more. He's won 15 games or more 16 or 17 straight seasons. He dosn't K a lot of batters, and his ERA and WHIP arn't anything to write home about, but if you play him in favorible matchups you can probably get away with about 10 wins and a good ERA and WHIP.
9. Cole Hamels- He's been great the past 6 weeks, and is K-ing over a batter an inning this year. With 180 innings pitched or so next year he could K almost 200 batters. With that dangerous Phillies lineup, he could pick up 14-15 wins as well. Think of him as next years Scott Kazmir.
10. Chad Billingsly- In his last 30 innings pitched, he is 3-0 with a 1.50 ERA & 25 K's. He could emerge as the Dodgers best starter next year, with 16 wins or so and a 3.20ish ERA.
1. Carl Crawford- People are no longer veiwing him as a 1st round option, instead middle to late 2nd round for some reason. With B.J. Upton and Delmon Young playing full time, and if either Johnny Gomes or Jorge Cantu even approach what they did in 2005, the D-Rays lineup is going to be twice as good. This of Crawford in 2007 of Jose Reyes in 2006.
2. Grady Sizemore- Based on the "is grady sizemore overated" thread, you can STEAL this guy in the 3rd or 4th. He will play like an early 2nd round pick next year. I think he'll approach 30/30 while scoring 130 in that tribe lineup.
3. Mark Teahen- Don't sleep on him again if you didn't get him this year. Has serious 30 home run 100 RBI potential next year.
4. Tru- Let the bashing begin. He has played fantastic since the All-Star Break, and in his last 100 at bats he has went deep 8 times while driving in 18 runs. He'll finish the season with 20 home runs and 75 RBI with 10 SB to boot. Next year I see somewhere around 28 home runs and 95 RBI. Oh, its tru, it's da#n tru!
5. Mike Cameron- Never gets any attention anywhere; you can probably get him from the 15th to 20th round. And we are talking about a guy that is going to go 25/25 this season with 90 runs and 80 RBI. Use a late pick on him next year and expect close to 30 jacks and over 20 stolen bases with a respectible .250-.275 average.
