Wrapping up the NL...

Atlanta Braves

 

NAME IP FIP+
Jorge Julio 12.3 209
John Smoltz 28 182
Phil Stockman 7.3 156
Will Ohman 58.7 141
Vladimir Nunez 32.7 138
Buddy Carlyle 62.7 127
Jair Jurrjens 188.3 121
Rafael Soriano 14 120
Tim Hudson 142 113
Jeff Bennett 97.3 109
Mike Gonzalez 33.7 106
Jorge Campillo 158.7 106
Julian Tavarez 34.7 104
Royce Ring 22.3 104
Blaine Boyer 72 104
Matt DeSalvo 2 103
Peter Moylan 5.7 90
Mike Hampton 78 89
Chris Resop 18.3 89
Manny Acosta 53 85
Charlie Morton 74.7 83
Jo-Jo Reyes 113 81
James Parr 22.3 78
Tom Glavine 63.3 72
Jeff Ridgway 9.7 69
Chuck James 29.7 52
Elmer Dessens 4 51
Francisley Bueno 2.3 46

Notable performances: Chuck James (what happened there?) and Jair Jurrjens. John Smoltz and Tom Glavine reunited seemed like an okay idea, but then injuries and talent regression occured and apparently leaves the Braves on the market for Jake Peavy. You don't hear as much about the Braves rehabilition projects as you did in the past, but Jorge Campillo and Buddy Carlyle are pretty nice finds.

Florida Marlins

 

NAME IP FIP+
Matt Lindstrom 57.3 135
Joe Nelson 54 125
Josh Johnson 87.3 122
Kevin Gregg 68.7 114
Chris Volstad 84.3 113
Justin Miller 46.7 111
Ricky Nolasco 212.3 110
Rick Vanden Hurk 14 109
Andrew Miller 107.3 107
Doug Waechter 63.3 101
Logan Kensing 55.3 90
Mark Hendrickson 133.7 90
Anibal Sanchez 51.7 88
Scott Olsen 201.7 85
Burke Badenhop 47.3 82
Renyel Pinto 64.7 81
Ryan Tucker 37 65
Jesus Delgado 2 57
Lee Gardner 6.7 55
Taylor Tankersley 17.7 54
Eulogio DL Cruz 9 48

So apparently Scott Olsen is never coming back to form. I joked a lot about the abundance of ex-Devil Rays on this list (Gardner, Hendrickson, Waechter, and even Miller was drafted, but never signed) yet for the most part they were solid. Well, okay, Waechter was solid out of relief. Josh Johnson returned strong, and Ricky Nolasco made big time progress. If the team isn't blown up again the Marlins could be a sleeper next season.

New York Mets

NAME IP FIP+
Billy Wagner 47 155
Bobby Parnell 5 134
Johan Santana 234.3 121
Brandon Knight 12 115
Joseph Smith 63.3 111
Mike Pelfrey 200.7 107
Brian Stokes 33.3 104
Luis Ayala 18 102
Duaner Sanchez 58.3 101
Nelson Figueroa 45.3 101
Pedro Feliciano 53.3 100
John Maine 140 97
Claudio Vargas 37 93
Aaron Heilman 76 91
Oliver Perez 194 91
Sc. Schoeneweis 56.7 90
Pedro Martinez 109 82
Jonathon Niese 14 82
Carlos Muniz 23.3 82
Tony Armas Jr. 8.3 81
Jorge Sosa 21.7 77
Ricardo Rincon 4 74
Matt Wise 7 70
Eddie Kunz 2.7 45

Johan Santana was still really, really good this season, Pedro on the other hand, eh. The Mets will lose Billy Wagner, and I highly doubt Omar Minaya would be content in simply letting Eddie Kunz take over. Look for some overpriced closer to land here for money that should be spent elsewhere.

Philadelphia Phillies

NAME IP FIP+
Andrew Carpenter 1 305
Scott Eyre 14.3 197
Brad Lidge 69.3 184
Les Walrond 10.3 176
Ryan Madson 82.7 134
Chad Durbin 87.7 120
Cole Hamels 227.3 120
Clay Condrey 69 112
Rudy Seanez 43.3 109
James Happ 31.7 106
Jamie Moyer 196.3 101
Tom Gordon 29.7 100
Brett Myers 190 99
J.C. Romero 59 97
Joe Blanton 70.7 87
Adam Eaton 107 84
Kyle Kendrick 155.7 79
Robert Swindle 4.7 55

I'm amused that the potential WS champs used Adam Eaton and Kyle Kendrick for 250 innings. Joe Blanton really must've benefitted from that Oakland park. Tom Gordon might make an interesting buy low reliever for some team (oh Minaya...) and James/J.A. Happ should probably be in the Phillies rotation next season, assuming they don't trade him.

Washington Nationals

Chad Cordero 4.3 221
Michael Hinckley 13.7 159
Jon Rauch 48.3 140
Saul Rivera 84 130
Garrett Mock 41 120
Joel Hanrahan 84.3 120
Shawn Hill 63.3 107
Steven Shell 50 105
Jesus Colome 71 100
Luis Ayala 57.7 98
Odalis Perez 159.7 94
John Lannan 182 89
Tim Redding 182 88
Collin Balester 80 84
Jason Bergmann 139.7 83
Brian Sanches 11 80
Matt Chico 48 75
Tyler Clippard 10.3 73
Shairon Martis 20.7 73
Charlie Manning 42 72
Levale Speigner 8 61
Marco Estrada 12.7 60
Ray King 6.3 58
Michael O'Connor 9 43
Chris Schroder 5 39

Sadly Ray King's career is probably over, but on the bright side the Nationals at least got a glimpse of some of their young arms. Odalis Perez was okay, not great, as a cheap find. Tim Redding has made a career out of it.  You wonder if Lannan and Hill can take steps into becoming legitmate 1-2 punches next season,  and you also wonder how quickly Stephen Strasburg will reach the majors, assuming the Nationals do take him.
