Curt isn't really a flyball pitcher. He's actually considered neutral. Career g/f ratio is 1.21.
Pedro who pitches in Fenway, has a career g/f ratio of 1.15. Pedro gives up slightly more flyballs, certaintly hasn't hurt him.
Boston's brass showed Curt it's not a big issue.
Fenway increases singles and doubles, but depresses hrs by quite alot.

No wonder he calls himself Roy.
His initials are HAH. Lol.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Nice list. Pedro and Prior for sure. I still like Zito. And Schilling and RJ could be back in top 5.
Zito needs run support. Schil could easily claw back into the top 5 with that offense and his skill. And RJ is a menace, he's mad and that's good. RJ will be a top pitcher next year (although maybe not top 5), mark my words.
