What do you guys think of Slowey and Parra?

Good K:BB rate, decent amnt of K's overall, too many HR's. I know he isn't the fireballer most scouts love.

But what are reasonable expectations for him? Seems if he can cut down on the HR's, he'd be a great sleeper.

Seems to be getting beat after he gets to thru the order 2x. What about his future? Will he develop into a solid #2 or remain a back of the rotation guy?

Johnny Cueto

Anthony Reyes
Sean Gallagher
Mike Pelfrey
Brandon Morrow
Phil Hughes
Yovani Gallardo
Yusmiero Petit
Franklin Morales

Nice list but I don't think a lot of people will be sleeping on these guys.

Well I didn't say that would be late round selections, only that I expected them to outperform where they were drafted. There are a few that will go fairly late in Miller (injured), Reyes (AAA), Gallagher (who?), Petit (former prospect), Morales (AAA).
