4 era in the minors?? what does that translate to in the bigs?

Lincecum's .36 era is a little bit better


You can't project anything over a 3 start span...it's way too small a sample size.

What is so great about Hughes is that he is the #1 prospect in the minor leagues right now...

...some do flop, but any prospect who is ranked in the top 5 is going to get some serious hype and has some serious talent.


I gotta give the top prospect award to the guy who has the 0.36 era

Few pitching prospects do well the first year. Most struggle.

Look at Hamels last year for example. Félix Hernández is another good example.

Felix had a 2.67 ERA and 1.00 WHIP his first year.

Hamels is kind of a wierd one because of all the injuries he had stunting his development.

Yep, the year that felix "flopped" is his 2nd year. And Hamels was dominant in his last 7 outings last outings. He had 3 or 4 bad starts, but after that he was lights out.

Oswalt and Prior were dominant when they got called up the first time.

A lot of it has to do with what division they are going to pitch in. I'm very high on Lincecum and not so high on Hughes.

Liriano was pretty friggin' sweet last year (wasn't too bad in 2 of his 3 2005 starts either)

I remember Prior pitched his first two games against the Pirates when he first came up and he looked like the best pitcher ever. Oswalt was very good also.

Felix was dominant also when he first came up.

These guys all have one thing in common. Their stuff is ridiculously good. Pick the most dominant pitcher destroying their league.

Where am I? If people think Hamels "struggled" last year then I must be on a planet other than Earth.
