Tough choices:

What do you mean "in the nex couple of years"?

If you mean who will have the best stats in the majors in the NEXT TWO YEARS, then I see Hansen as your answer because hes likely the closer next year and partly this year.

For future its tough to tell for me: Lester has great potential as a hard throwing southpaw, Zumayala has control issues but throws nearly 100 mph (although Capellan did that and where is he now?), Pelfrey showed very good stuff in his recent debut but he just signed from college and hasn't really adjusted, Diamond needs to be traded, he has very good stuff but the ballpark will deminish his career.

For the next two years or so Zumaya, then Hansen.


Long term: Lester.

I tend to agree and would go w/ Hansen for next 2 years.
Just another amateur learning to paint w/ "the light of the world".

Weaver will definitely make something of himself. I think hes the best out of that crop.

I'd go w/ Pelfrey if you want a starter and Hansen if you want a closer. I think Pelfrey will get through the minors fairly easily and then he has a great pitchers park and no DH, helps him out a bit. Lester would be the guy I have right behind Pelfrey, but I'm not as high on him cause I like Pelfrey's stuff more and he will pitch against the AL East and in Fenway.
