NL King Ranks NL Only Fantasy Baseball Starting Pitchers Part 3

2012 NL Only Starting Pitchers Part 3

Bronson Arroyo - Coming off awful year. Might be worth a flier.
Homer Bailey - Needs to prove he can stay healthy.
Brandon Beachy - Loved what I saw last year, I expect a $15 year this year.
Erik Bedard - Can never stay healthy.
Chad Billingsley - Has the talent to be a front end starter but cannot be consistent enough.
Joe Blanton - Contract year, great reserve pick.
A.J. Burnett - Eye injury makes him a reserve pick.
Chris Capuano - Moves from Citi Field to Dodger Stadium. Will hurt your ratio.
Kevin Correia - Not a believer despite his 12 wins last year.
Randall Delgado - Great sleeper, should start the year in the rotation for Tim Hudson.
Ryan Dempster - Could be sleeper, solid '11 second half. Cubs will trade him in the summer.
R.A. Dickey - Solid depth starter.
Dillon Gee - Back end starter.
Jeremy Guthrie - How does he respond to Coors Field? Could be ugly adjustment early.
Aaron Harang - Dodger stadium still spacious, although I am not a believer.
Jeff Karstens - Loved what I saw last year but have to see it again before I buy in.
Mike Leake - Was great from late June on but I need to see a solid full season.
John Lannan - Could be odd man out in Washington.
Ted Lilly - Always been a fan, if you can get for a cheap price on draft day, go for it.
Kyle Lohse - Little girl with the curl, he's either really good or really bad. Don't overpay.
Corey Luebke - Sleeper Alert.
Jordan Lyles - Could be a good young pitcher but avoid, due to Houston and growing pains.
J.A. Happ - Astros weak offensively, Happ coming off terrible year.
Paul Maholm - I will pass.
James McDonald - Sleeper Alert.
Mike Minor -Eventually will be real good but will have a lot of growing pains this year with walks.
Dustin Moseley - Loves Petco. back end starter.
Charlie Morton - Ratio Killer.
Chris Narveson - Has talent but inconsistency kills his numbers.
Jon Niese - Needs to get the ratio down to be a viable player.
Ricky Nolasco - Like Billingsley, has a lot of talent but cannot be consistent.
Bud Norris - If he wasn't on such a bad team. Great depth starter.
Mike Pelfrey - Avoid.
Clayton Richard - Sleeper Alert.
Wandy Rodriguez - Team is awful and Houston wants to move his contract.
Anibal Sanchez - If he can stay healthy can be a $15 starter. He is playing for a contract.
Joe Saunders - Great 2nd half but I think 2011 was a mirage.
Tim Stauffer - Please don't overpay based on last year.
Ryan Vogelsong - Figure on a $10 year.
Chris Volstad - Ratio killer and no K's and bad team.
Edinson Volquez - He can pitch in any park including Yellow Stone but if you can't throw strikes....
Chien Ming Wang - Worth a $1 flyer.
Randy Wells - Pass.
Jake Westbrook - Ratio Killer.
Randy Wolf - Solid depth starter.
Vance Worley - Looks like a good young pitcher but don't overpay based on last year.
TravisWood - Cubs will give a chance sometime during this year. Reserve pick.
Carlos Zambrano - I don't know, Guillen & Zambrano in the same clubhouse.
Barry Zito - Moneyball no longer working with him.

NL King - C.Lizza
