buerhle deserves to be there. He is the most viable 20 game winner in the league right now imo.

I think a guy that is getting overlooked but is having a very nice year so far is C.Carpenter. 7 Wins. Decent ERA,WHip. But his K's is what I've been impressed with. 61K's in 66IP. His BB seem to be a bit high though which is hurting his Whip.

Also J.Vazquez has bounced back nicely this year. Maybe NYY jumped the gun on trading him. But he seems to be back to the Vazquez he was before he turned to the darkside. Gotta love his K/BB ratio to!

anyone else I'm not thinking of..and how would you rank them?


Categories are:

W, K, ERA, WHIP, K/9


Buerhle is not even close on that list. Bedard certainly belongs up there.


You should stick to Star Wars Yoda. Buehrle's rock solid. ;-)

i doubt buehrle gets sub 3.50 ERA this year.

i think he's solid, but not top 10.

they didnt jump the gun at all.....if he was in NY this year he would be the same schmuck he was 2nd half last season.....the move to Arizona and return to the NL is what has turned the tides for javier.

Buerhle has got numbers that are as good as anyone this year. He has actaully taken a step forward from last year and is a definite #1 pitcher this year.

Would be nice to see you back it up with some supporting arguments instead of a personal jab. The fact that the guy has a career 3.70 ERA with a 5.39 K/9 IP in 05 shows me he doens't belong in the top 10 among starters. Sorry.

Yeah I agree with Yoda. I think Beurhle would be nice to have in real life as a #1 because he eats more innings than anyone else, but as far as fantasy goes he doesn't compare to handfuls of other pitchers.

My top 10 in no particular order:
Santana
RJ
Pedro
Beckett
Halladay
Oswalt
Sheets
Beckett
Peavy
Clemens

Prior getting hurt, Burnett iffy, Harden hurt, and Schilling's injury up in the air made this easier.
