How would you rank this year's rookie pitchers

Postby audioboy » Fri May 25, 2007 4:45 pm

Last season I spent a great deal of time trying to load up on rookie pitchers, it appears I'm trying to do the same this season. Last season I acquired (either at auction or via trades)

Cole Hamels
Rich Hill
Scott Olsen
Mike Pelfrey
Jason Hirsh
Justin Verlander
and
Adam Miller

I traded away most of the above guys in deals for established veteran (still have Hamels, Hill and Olsen)

This season I've got

Gallardo
Lincecum
Andrew Miller
Homer Bailey
and
Jeff Nieman

If you had to rank all the players how would you rank them?

I think I'd go

1. Hamels
2. Lincecum
3. Gallardo
4. Verlander
5. Scott Olsen
6. Andrew Miller
7. Homer Bailey
8. Rich Hill
9. Adam Miller
10. Jason Hirsh
11. Mike Pelfrey
12. Jeff Niemann

Do you think I'd be way off anywhere?

Nice group of young arms there... As far as potential?

1. Tim Lincecum (This is a toss up between him and Hamels. I think Lincecum has a higher ceiling and I wouldn't doubt his ability at all)
2. Cole Hamels
3. Yovani Gallardo
4. Homer Bailey (you had Bailey way too low)
5. Justin Verlander
6. Andrew Miller
7. Scott Olsen (you could make an arguement for Adam Miller here)
8. Adam Miller
9. Rich Hill
10. Jeff Niemann
11. Jason Hirsh
12. Mike Pelfrey

Hill way to low,

having gallardo and bailey ahead of Verlander is a joke imo.

i agree, having guys who havnt proved anything in the bigs ahead of a guy such as verlander(who has put up a brilliant season and started this one out on the same pace) is not right. its tough to put lincecum ahead of him. but giving the way he has tossed his last 3 games it is justifiable.

this is how it would look in my opinion. now remember when comparing pitchers this close in talent level. there can be alot of guys who think a guy should be higher or lower. this is with liriano and also, taking into consideration the teams and divisions they will be playing in and for.

1. Liriano
2. Hamels
3. Lincecum
4. Verlander
5. Hill
6. Gallardo
7. Andrew Miller
8. Bailey
9. Mike Pelfrey
10. Adam Miller
11. Jeff Niemann
12. Jason Hirsch

the list is missing some talented players, but it started out as how to compare pitchers that I've had on my fantasy roster. Up to this point I've missed out on guys like Hughes, Zumaya, and Broxton.

Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.

he may be a sox fan, but hes right about danks. pitching in the al central is no easy task and hes done real well against some really good teams.

1. Liriano
2. Lincecum
3. Hamels
4. Verlander
5. Rich Hill
6. Gallardo
7. Homer Bailey
8. Andrew Miller
9. Adam Miller
10. Jason Hirsh
11. Jeff Niemann
12. Mike Pelfrey
