I’m a little disappointed Tim, you didn’t mention Brian :(

Pretty accurate on almost every pitcher there. You put Derek Holland and I really think this is his season to break out.

But no Brett Anderson? No Clayton Richard? Ricky Romero?

I think Ervin Santana is going to have a huge season. As will Francisco Liriano.

Anderson being drafted before the 13th round, other two I probably wouldn’t think about much in a 12-team mixed league. Richard, maybe.

Come on Tim, Have you seen that Ricky Romero Curveball?

Interesting guy, like the groundball rate, but not good against righties last year…I don’t think he’s bad or anything, but he’s not really on my fantasy baseball radar.

Ricky Romero Curveball? I am a diehard Jays fan, his curveball aint that special, its his Johan Santana-esque changeup that baffels hitters. However, Shaun Marcum is a better fantasy option and is never talked about. He is a warrior.

I like Brad Penny as a sleeper kind of guy. It’s Dave Duncan, you never know :). Jamie Garcia also looked pretty good this ST after TJ

Here’s a sleeper:

Jonathan Niese is likely to get the 5th spot for the Mets. I use a late pick on him.

7.8 K/9 and 1.283 WHIP in 94 IP in AAA

Hmmm……………… Lets see.

I like Kip Wells to have a big 2010………….. Big bucks says “Cowboy” Wells finally hits his potential to turn over a new leaf in the new decade.

Seriously, I’d have mentioned Brett Cecil. Very underrated prospect………… Could break out. Watch David Pauley too.

Also, I say Chien-Ming Wang stops pitching like the Toys R’ Us giraffe and throws good sinkers again.

I like Jason Marquis to challenge for the CY. I’m betting he OD’s on the HGH again in the Washington backwater and just totally explodes. He sort of thrives while mired in crap, in an enigmatic way, so I like him this year. Also, he looks like Joaquin Pheonix, so that is a plus.

David Huff and Anthony Reyes are really going to be the next Koufax/Drysdale over in Cleveland and form an absolutely unparalleled 1 and 2. Hey, why not. Huff could be the next Glavine????

I want to see what Dave Bush does as well. I’m betting on enormous bouncebacks from Bush and Suppan. Suppan is a god amongst men.

Also watch Tim Stauffer. He was once a #1pick, during the Taft administration, I believe.

Daniel Cabrera………….. wherever he winds up after CHW made an absolutely boneheaded and misguided decision to let him walk. I haven’t given up on the ace-potential figure yet. Here’s hoping he edges out Rich Hill for the all-important 5th starter job in STL !!!!! Go D-CAB !!!!!!!

I also just have this crazy and funny feeling about Tim Harikkala. Call it fate, kismet, destiny, whatever.

Also watch out for Russ Ortiz, Ramon Ortiz, and Rodrigo Lopez. All 3 of these guys are candidates for HUGE rebound campaigns in 2010, although frankly I can not tell you the difference between any of them. Still…………… you might want to save late slots in your little fantasy-league draft for all 3 of these wonderful specimins of masculinity and pitching.

If Sydney Ponson is not too busy bashing in mailboxes or some sociopathic activity like that, he is likely to get on a good run in some festering craphole backwater like the Padres rotation or something like that.

Russ Ortiz, in particular, is going to rebound immensely under the Aegis of some vaunted pitching guru, like that Pohl guy on the Reds. Dusty Baker will do wonders with Russ Ortiz and protect his exceedingly valuable arm accordingly. You can’t possibly value Russ Ortiz too highly. He has loads of potential.

Also, Livan Hernandez may well get 30 starts for Washington, and you don’t want to miss this gravy train!!!!!! Some of these may even be quality starts, and these are like gold!!!!!

Farce is a bit of a stretch, these are fantasy baseball rankings.
