Tristan H. Cockcroft: Good morning everyone! Let's get right to those fantasy baseball questions of yours... Goose (Chicago): Will Philip Humber have any fantasy value in 2007? Do you see him getting any spot starts or sticking in this ancient rotation? Tristan H. Cockcroft: He's got a chance, assuming he begins the year strong in the minor leagues. Let's say his best-case scenario has him as 2007's version of Anibal Sanchez. He has that kind of upside. But don't forget, Humber is only 14 starts removed from Tommy John surgery, and only six of those came in the Double-A level. He's still a pretty raw prospect accounting for the delay in his career due to surgery. I'm thinking he's a September call-up, maybe this year's Mike Pelfrey for the Mets.
