Who's the top pitcher at the end of the season?

Postby superslugger616 » Sat May 12, 2007 12:26 pm

I was thinking about who I would want if I could have any pitcher from the AL or NL on my team. The two names that came right to mind were Johan Santana and Jake Peavy. I think I'd have to take Peavy over Johan at this point, even though Johan always heats up post-April. Who would everyone else take??

i would still take johan. the track record is impeccable, and i would be somewhat surprised if peavy finished the year ahead of him, though both should be excellent.

I appreciate what Peavy has done, but Johan's April ERA this year was almost a full run lower than it is for his career.

This could be his best season yet. Scary.

Roger Clemens is better than Johan by a mile, and Peavy by 10 miles. There's no way he gets less than 25 wins this year and the Cy Young. Bank on it.

Santana and Peavy should be up there by the end. Oswalt as well. I am hoping that Sheets will stay healthy and be up there but it will be a reach.

I wish that happened. :-) Because I have Peavy, Webb, and Hamels.


Johan's top preseason competition such as Carpenter and Halladay are down. Honestly, the only guys who could challenge Johan are high strike-out pitchers such as Sheets and Peavy who are also on good teams so they can get the 20+ wins to possibly unseat him if Johan gets say only 19 wins.

I'll take Peavy.

1) He is in the NL

2) He is in the NL West

3) He is in Petco
