This years Verlander?

Postby kingmike74 » Thu Feb 01, 2007 10:09 am

Do you see any 07 rookies coming close to Verlander's 06 performance? I think if the Reds would be more consistant, Homer Baily could approach 15 wins and avg. 5-6 k's a game with a sub 4 ERA.

I would love to see Philip Hughes get his shot, but it probably won't happen. I don't think we'll see a Verlander-type pitcher this year.

My money would be on Mike Pelfrey or Phil Hughes should he get an opportunity.

Homer Bailey.

He won't match Verlander's win totals, but he'll strikeout more.

My favorite young, under the radar guy right now is Billingsley. He was a bit rushed but pitched very well at the end. He's not a rookie though.

If I had to pick one rookie, it would be Lincecum. I also like Havok's choice of Miller as well.

I'll go with Lincecum and then Bailey, although i don't think either will come close to what Verlander did last year. Lincecum is the top choice for me because he could thrive either as a starter or in the bullpen.

Lincecum definitely has the talent to be an Ace, but I would think that the Giants would save him for 2008. Kinda like what they did with Cain.

I've been wondering about this lately. It seems that most of Giants fans here at the cafe are of the same mindset, so I'm inclined to agree with you even though it goes against my previous post somewhat.

One guy that could be very valuable if he gets called up is Gallardo. He's definitely ready for the bigs from everything I've heard and he was a strikeout machine in the minors.
