You can't project or think highly of someone after a short stint in the majors? Generally you shouldn't, and normally I don't, but if you don't think Moore is in a separate category than 98% of all other young guys coming up then I don't think you're paying attention. He can and should be given every expectation that Strasburg did when he came up, IMHO.

He'll have his struggles from time to time but if he's what I think he is then I would start him against anyone until he's showing that he can't handle it.

Doesn't keep CC, Price and Shields out of top 10 pitcher considerations...Moore can definately be in that category...if not better.

Who's said otherwise? With that said I definately think Moore has a chance to pretty much be the left handed version of Strasburg...he's that good, in my mind anyway.
***With all that said, you still draft him cautiously. He is young and inexperienced but he's not someone you should feel ashamed of going out on a limb on, IMHO.
