"Son! Don't fly too close to the sun!"
"Old man, don't you know it gets colder the higher you fly?"
With that, here are my player values/rankings for the Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals. A couple of notes though. The Nationals play in a pitcher's park. Their starters should be considered sleepers where talent warrants. Sorry, Tim Redding. The Cardinals have had success with starting pitchers and Wins. Right now, there are still holes in the rotation, but whoever fills them is a draftable player.
