MLB: Top 60 Fantasy Starting Pitchers for 2010

With the World Series concluding with the New York Yankees defeating the Philadelphia Phillies for their 27th championship, it’s time for the third season (if the regular season and postseason are #1 and #2): the Hot Stove season. This includes not only the offseason movement for all of the teams, but also the in-depth analysis for the upcoming fantasy baseball season. So as I sit in the internet cafe at the Doubletree Suites in Phoenix, AZ, getting ready for the opening reception of the BaseballHQ.com First Pitch Forums, I’m going to kickoff my Hot Stove season here at Baseball by Paul with my top two tiers of starting pitchers. (Yes, I unofficially kicked off with a few player previews and my top 12s from late in the 2009 season, but this is the OFFICIAL kickoff)…

Since there is still so much to be sorted out, this will just be a 1-60 list with the profile capsules coming later in the winter along with the third through fifth tiers. I’ll have a few comments on why some guys landed where they did later, but for now it will just be the list. Without further ado:
