In many cases, fantasy baseball owners come to their drafts armed with little more than the previous season's statistics. They try to make sense of it all and construct a team. However, doing that with nearly a third of Monday's American League starting pitchers wouldn't get you real far. Of the 10 pitchers slated to start, three of them missed the entire 2009 season, which is unique, considering it's Opening Day. However, it seems to me that expectations in the fantasy baseball world are different for them.
