Ted Lilly

I have read that Ted Lilly has lengthened his stride in Oakland, therefore, increasing his mph and accuracy.....whether or not this is just spin, we'll see....he's worth a look if you have an extra bench spot for him

These guys are all solid sleepers. I wouldn't get too carried away with Lilly's spring outings, but he has solidified his spot.

Zambrano looked solid late last season in his stint. He gets nice K's. Will not be under pressure at #4/#5 on the Cubs. They have liked him for years.

Patterson was once a top notch prospect, whom the D Backs would not part with, instead trading Padilla. He blew his arm out, and just now is returning to form. Again, at #4, or 5 on AZ, he will have room to learn. I don't see many runs in the desert, though. I like him the least.

In this order


Patterson might be a little riskier then Zam, but has a higher upside on the dbacks.
Lilly had some problems at the end of the year, but seems to be better, and should give the A's a fourth reliable starter, and that team is going to score a ton of runs for him.
