Kennedy's on my list

Also considering Peavy, Parker, T. Hudson.

Other young guns I'm also looking at are Ventura, Paxton and Gausman (less likely to break camp after Ubaldo signing)

Just seeing now that Peavy (finger) may start the season on the DL.

Agreed. But I though that was the point of this thread?


Read the post. The whole point, according to the OP is we are only talking about pitchers outside the top 50.

I read the post.
Going by Yahoos ranks, because thats where I play 100% of my games, all the guys but Kuroda I mentioned are ranked right around 50 or later.
What am I missing?

The way I understood it is, the OP wants us to list guys who are generally ranked pretty low in the 50-60 range, that we feel *should* be ranked much higher, and are thus comfortable taking as a SP4 or SP5.
Maybe Im wrong?

Being the "OP" I guess I didn't clearly explain.

I'm looking for targets that would be outside of the Top 50-60. Looking at the guys that in your opinion would outperform their values after the first 50-60 SPs are off the board.

Peavy possibly being on the DL knocked him down a notch, but would you take him over Archie Bradley who may not make the ARI rotation?

The players being mentioned are fine, let's not worry about it too much and try to stay ON topic.


How about Drew Smyly? He's ranked way down there and could do very well in a decent pitchers park and with a good offense behind him. If he can start 25+ games, he could offer very nice returns for basically no cost.
