Time To Worry About Rich Hill

After just two starts, one of which was solid?  Yes.  Because that's the Cubs.  Hill, whose problems often seem mental, always seems at risk of being pulled from the Cubs' rotation.  Given the presence of Jon Lieber, it's a very real possibilityTed Lilly has been worse than Hill this year, but Lilly is paid far too much to be pulled.  Plus, Hill had a severe case of the yips in Spring Training.

Despite being one of Hill's biggest supporters for a couple of years, I am concerned that he could become a major fantasy bust this year.  If you own him, there's nothing you can do right now. 

There's something to be said for giving some extra weight to a pitcher's "stuff" during your draft.  Normally I don't, instead trusting my dollar values.  But my gut says that I'd rather have the bat-breaking repertoires of Felix Hernandez and Johnny Cueto over the 89 mph heaters of Lilly and Hill.
