Who is the next RA Dickey... (Posted on 12/30/12 at 7:42 pm)
Who will be the 2013 version fantasy wise?
I have 2 nominations:
Mark Rogers SP Brewers; Former 1st round pick. Hit majors in 2010 but plagued by injuries... didn't play in 2011. Did pretty good coming in at the end of 2012. Had pretty good k/bb ratios and considering his limited experience has shown he can strike hitters out.
James Loney 1B TB; he has under achieved offensively but now moving to Tampa(he won't threaten to be an offensive mvp though)
Both could be nice pickups at the end of a draft or $1-$2 in an auction.

Two relatively young pitchers who could have big years....
Hughes last year posted a 7.8k/9 (improved from 5.8k/9)and a 2.2W/9 (improved from 3.3w/9) what did him in was 35 home runs allowed. He still won 16 games for the Yankees, if he cuts his home runs by say 10 he probably has 3 more wins and under a 4.00 ERA on year.
Nova improved his strike out rate from 5.3k/9 to 8.1k/9 and lowered his walk per 9 from 3.1 to 3.0. He allowed 28 home runs on season and allowed 10 hits per 9 as opposed to 8 the previous season.
