i didnt know where to post this so i am posting it here. my question is what are your thoughts on jeff niemann for 2010!! hes looking really good in spring training and i know its just spring training but he is showing really good command of his pitches just having 2 walks this spring in 19 innings. his strikeout rate is pretty good about a K an inning. my question is should i keep him as my fifth starter and your predictions for 2010!! thanks

Nieman's track record so far on fangraphs:

I don't think you can expect him to continue to K a batter an inning. I like the MARCEL projections on him: 10 wins, a 4.20 ERA, 110 K's, 1.36 WHIP in 155 IP. I think that's pretty fair, although I think his WHIP will be lower.

I'd keep him for now, but wouldn't feel bad about dropping him quickly if he starts getting hit hard.
