the problem with haren is that hes a fly ball pitcher going from a park where its very difficult to hit the ball out to a park where the balls fly...i'm not saying he wont have a good year, but i think the switch in ballparks more than makes up for the league switch...on the plus side, he gets to face the giants worthless offense now

personally, i'm staying away from him because of where hes going to be drafted

He is also going to a league without the DH, a league with weaker hitting in general, into a division that is mostly hitters parks and to a team with a better bullpen and better fielding.

I doubt he takes a large hit to his numbers. I still don't see how you could list him in the top 5 SP in baseball though, that is just over the top.

As per actual performance in 2008 I dont think it will go the way as I seen in past posts.
I view it this way.

1. Bedard
2. Santana
3. Peavy
4. Webb
5. Kazmir
6. Haren
7. Zambrano
8. Beckett
9. Jered Weaver
10. Verlander
11. Lackey
12. Oswalt
13. Liriano
14. Lincecum
15. Young

Bubble: King Felix, CC, Hamels, Maine, Hughes

Erik at number 1 isn't really that far-fetched. He had terrible run support, plays in the AL East, and didn't pitch almost the whole last month, and still had the most K's up until the last few weeks of the regular season. Mind you, I would probably have Santana, Peavy, then Bedard, but it could really go either way, esp. if Bedard gets traded this off season which seems highly likely.
