I have no idea. I'm not even venturing since I am so off base.

I agree that the Braves, Oswalt and Berkman are under rated.

You think the Red Sox will win 98 games with that rotation?

And the Yankees only 92 with basically the same rotation but a better offense?

Haha, you're probobly right. Halladay was just the first guy to pop into my head. I forgot about Kazmir. If Kazmir starts the season healthy, then he will probobly lead the AL in strikeouts.

Well thats not happening because Kazmir has already started the season unhealthy, I read on the Rays site that they have tabbed Shields as the opening day starter.

Oh, OK. Will Kazmir be ready at the beginning of the season? Or is he already going to miss a couple weeks at the beginning of the season, or longer? If he is ready by his first start and can stay healthy, he could be the strikeout leader. He's a great pitcher.
