The other day we looked at the top free agent hitters in 2008 and now we go over some of the top free agent pitchers for 2008. Similarly to the other day, these are not all of the free agent pitchers. So there’s no reason to write in about how we forgot Josh Fogg. He was remembered then forgotten; there’s a difference. These free agent pitchers could potentially see their fantasy value take a hit or surge with a team move.  A list of all the free agents is here. Anyway, here’s some top free agents for 2008, the pitchers’ edition:

CC Sabathia – Sabathia almost didn’t make this list. Not because he’s not a free agent. He is, a top one at that. I just don’t see his value changing a whole lot with a new team. If he goes to the Yankees, he’ll be facing tougher hitters than the NL Central — pho sho! He’ll still be dominant and he’ll still be coming off a season when he was overworked.

Ben Sheets – Here’s another guy that I don’t think gets that affected by free agency as long as he stays healthy– Just as I was typing that, a butterfly in the Republic of Djibouti flapped its wings and Ben Sheets pulled an abdominal muscle.

Brian Fuentes – Fuentes needs to land with a team that needs a closer for him to retain his value. Otherwise, his value will be this.

Francisco Rodriguez – Wherever he lands, he’ll get at least 70 saves next year. (<–sarcasm) He might benefit a bit by the move to the NL (since he’s almost definitely going to the Mets), but he’s still never going to see a saves season like he just did.

Oliver Perez – All indications are that Perez will vacate Queens. I could see Perez hurt by a move. A new team will have to figure out what makes Oliver Perez work then try to duplicate it from start to start. Good. Luck.

A.J. Burnett – The number one crazy hot chick in baseball. One day, a shutout and 12 Ks. Next day, pretending to be pregnant so you won’t go out with the fellas. Burnett’s a fantasy ulcer waiting to happen.

    @Grey: If you can do your day’s work without getting out of your jammies, more power to ya.

    Works for Hef.

    @Steve: I think you might have been caught in the Spam filter because of the link. Sometimes these things happen. Sorry. You need to just comment again and tell me to check the spam filter.

  5. Steve says:

    @Grey: No worries. I wonder why it detects some URLS and not others? No need to answer – just thinking out loud.

    @Steve: Hef has beautiful naked women running around his mansion’s estate and he works in his jammies. Now if I could just flip which quality I share with Hef.

    No idea why it grabs some links but not others.

  7. Steve says:

    @Grey: He does a fair bit of work out his jammies too.

    Mind you, those naked women seem to be deserting him at a rapid rate right now.

  8. Steve says:

    @Grey: That’s “work out OF his jammies”, obviously.

    Grey says:

    @Steve:He also does a fair bit of work to work out his jammies. He’s getting old.

  10. Steve says:

    @Grey: Maybe he just doesn’t have the energy to take them off. Or maybe he’s forgotten how.
