Im not nearly as high on Harden as some are.
I see a k/9 of about 8.0
an ERA between 3.75 and 4.25
and a whip in the 1.20's
wins are much to volatile to make an accurate projection. for the sake of the team im hoping "he can win" 15+
Mulder won 17 last year with an era in the mid 4's.

He will be very good this year. ERA around 3.20 Id say. Probably 190 K in as many innings. 13-15 Wins. Id take him as a strong number 2 pitcher on my staff.

I would think that they would nurture him a little with such a young live arm, particularly when you have guys like Cruz and Duscherer in there that can throw alot of innings in relief. Just curious what your thoughts are....
I wish I knew how to grab just a part of a quote. I'm still new at this, I'll learn.
As for Harden reaching 200, I definitely think he will. The A's have a tendancy not to hold back young arms, so I would be surprised if they tried to nurture Harden. Plus, he pitched almost 190 innings last year. Look at each of the Big 3 in their respective first two full seasons:
Hudson - 202/235
Zito - 214/229
Mulder - 229/207
Obviously that was under a different Manager, but Macha hasn't shown any signs of letting up on his starters. Assuming he's durable enough, he'll go 200, and I think he's a stud in the making.
Now if I could just get someone to tell me how to grab part of a quote...
