Is he still the greatest lefty of all time? Or now that he's injured does he drop below Koufax? ;-7


He drops below Koufax. Liriano needs to prove himself a little longer.

Neither did I but the rookie cutoff is supposed to be at 50 IP and he only had 40 last year (or does it differ with relief pitchers?)

Sowers over Hamels in the rotation flowbee??? Hamels has struggled sometimes this year but his past 3 are really promising. Plus i say no to rookies that dont record strikeouts....



Boo finese pitchers...

its 50ip OR a certain number of days on the roster. i dont remember how many days it is but i'd be willing to bet a reliever that got 40ip spent enough days on the major league roster to lose rookie eligibilty.

;-D to finese pitchers that can eat up 7+ innings every start and have the poise of a machine. Sowers offers a change of pace from the fireballers and pitches like a veteran. Cleveland has a below average defense and he still does great

Hamels is injury prone and I think he would be especially useful as a guy out of the bullpen that can go a couple innings if need be but also matchup against lefties to get outs when needed.
