Today we finish up with our first look at the 2014 fantasy baseball starting pitching rankings by looking at the 81-100 slots.

81. A.J. Griffin:  Soft-tosser has had two nice seasons in a row with regards to his ratios.
82. Brandon Morrow:  Steep ball for perennial power tease.  Stuff is diminishing with all his injuries.
83. Andrew Cashner:  I am intrigued again given the San Diego digs and the strikeout stuff. 
84. Bartolo Colon:  No one trusts how Colon is pitching like an SP 2 but in Citi Field he stands a good chance for another solid WHIP and ERA.
85. Miguel Gonzalez:  Nothing to add here that I haven't already said about most guys in this tier. 
86.  Bronson Arroyo:  You know you will get 220 innings here with solid ratios and shaky K rates. 
87. Eric Stults:  The ballpark helps Stults put up results better than what he really is.
88. Jhoulys Chacin:  Was a decent sleeper back in 2012 but Chacin took awhile to reap benefits.  Still can't get excited drafting any pitcher who plays his home games at Coors Field.
89. Corey Kluber:  Reminds me of Dan Straily with the impressive minor league strikeout numbers. 
90. Ricky Nolasco:  Finally useful again last season after years of horrid pitching.  Remains in nice ballpark with the Minnesota Twins.
91. Mike Leake:  Again another guy who is useful in spurts but whose K rate is ugly.
92. Scott Kazmir:  No way I trust Kazmir to stay healthy off a decent comeback season with the Cleveland Indians. 
93. Brandon Beachy:  Don't forger about this guy who in the first two months of 2012 was the best pitcher in baseball.
94. Danny Salazar:  Young kid with some power stuff.  Watch him.
95. Yusmeiro Petit:  Opened some eyes again with a close no-hitter attempt.  Arm is still lively.
96. Alex Wood:  Will be given a shot to build on nice second half performance. Got to always keep tabs on Atlanta Braves pitching.
97. Rick Porcello:  Was a buzzy prospect for years but ultimately the lack of K rate makes Porcello an SP 5 at best.
98. Daniel Duffy:  Always liked this kid who can rack up the K's but the control is horrendous.
99. Mark Buehrle:  Getting old and the stats are slipping.
100. Johan Santana:  Will get a shot from someone and worth monitoring as he pitched well before the latest surgery.

There you have it.  As always let us hear your thoughts.
