Can he keep this up? I know he's not this good, but can he repeat his 2008 season? I'm trying to decide if he's worth owning over Braden or Lilly. I couldn't get any trade bites on Braden after the PG.

If he stays healthy he is this good (obviously the numbers will adjust). He'll have some ups and downs in the AL East summer swoon, but he's a solid option for the rest of the year. He's better than Lilly and Braden. Think 3.60 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 7 K/9 the rest of the way.

Ok, since it is a consensus at this point, the question becomes who is worse, Lilly or Braden? I have to drop one of those to pick up Marcum. I prefer Lilly's K rate, but through 3 start so far he's not striking out nearly as many as I would expect, but I also know his fastball is down about 4mph from his normal velocity so that probably is a factor.

I think it's more likely that Lilly regains his form than Braden remains viable all season. I prefer a solid track record.

Edit: An excellent Braden breakdown from another site which shall remain nameless.

Dallas Braden, SP, A's. A younger, lefthanded, harder-throwing version of Livan Hernandez, Braden is on the way to his first season with more than 137 innings. He thrives on finesse, locating his high-80's fastball, slider, curve and change precisely. This year he has shown a much-improved two-seam sinker. Braden has also been using his curve more, with good results. Opposing batters say his changeup has more downward fade. "Down" is the theme for Braden this year. He's been keeping all his pitches low, bringing his ERA and WHIP way down. Already '10 is a breakthrough season for the 26-year-old southpaw. Still, we've already seen (April 28 at Tampa Bay) that the new and improved Braden can still be knocked out when he doesn't have his good stuff. When he's up, he's hittable. While Braden might develop like Tom Glavine, he isn't there yet. Don't be surprised if Braden's owners are checking matchups before starting him in July and August.

Thanks. I kept Lilly. It should be somewhat of a moot point in a month when Erik Bedard is back... until he goes down with another injury of course.
