I'm in the process of playing around with my yahoo team that was just drafted. I'm looking through the waiver list and there are some interesting players available. I'm wondering what people think will be the seasons for these guys:
Most of these guys are coming off poor seasons. Anyone think they will bounce back? Any worth picking up?

I expect Ponson, Padilla, and Rios to have solid seasons.

I would expect Hinske to bounce back well from his disappointing and oft-injured 2004. Kazmir has a lot of talent, he is worth a look too, although he will be facing a lot of good lineups in the AL East. Horacio Ramirez will also put up good numbers this year.

Padilla has the best stuff on the Phillies' staff, he could get 15 pretty easily this year...but he's also been pretty inconsistent, still, I wouldn't mind having him on my team.

Look out for Hinske and Rios...both are going to have solid seasons if healthy.

Jay Gibbons should have a 100 rbi season.

I like Ramirez if he stays healthy.
C'mon, he'll be pitching for the BRAVES.

I'd add Rios in an instant. He will do very well this season, especially if his power #'s improve. Hinske is a risk, unless you are sorely lacking, I wouldn't risk it quite yet. Padilla and Kazmir should both have good seasons, I expect both to pitch well, even though one is inconsistant, and one is very young. Ramirez should also put up good numbers, and Francis is the real mystery piece here. He is a top of the line pitching prospect, named the top minor league pitcher last season for a while or something to that effect I believe. He'll be with the Rockies, but who knows how he'll perform, they dont exactly give the best run support.
Out of the entire list, I'd try and pick up Rios, Padilla for sure, and possibly Ramirez.

If I had the room on my team, I would pick up Kazmir. He's going to be one of those enigmas, the best player on a really bad team. Maybe not huge in the win column, but should be good with SO's and ERA numbers.
One of those trades that the Mets are going to wish they never made.
