Ranking the A's trio

1. Hudson (most consistant)
2. Mulder (can throw the most innings and gets wins, but injury concern)
3. Zito (K rate declining, and is the most inconsistant of the 3)

Hudson is the obvious #1, he's just plain awesome. Mulder and Zito are pretty much the same player stats wise. Personally, I'll take Mulder who has proven he can win games without getting a lot of K's, unlike Zito.


What do you mean unlike Zito? Last 3 years Zito has 54 wins, Mulder 55, Hudson 49.

3 year whips

Mulder 1.16
Hudson 1.18
Zito 1.18

3 year eras

Hudson 3.02
Zito 3.17
Mulder 3.36

K rate

Mulder 6.2
Hudson 6.1
Zito 5.7

Why is Hudson considered the easy #1? I still like Zito. I'm stubborn.

Zito's career K/9 rate is still higer then Hudson and Mulder

career k/9
Zito 7.16

Hudson 6.81

Mulder 6.11

Zito has a strong case to be #1 in the A's trio

Well it's easier for me to rank these 3 than say the bottom half of the Reds staff.

Claussen
Haynes
Harang
Acevedo

Now that's tough. ;-D

LOL :-D

My rankings on these 3 change every day. Honestly, given the background inconsistency in pitching stats year to year, I don't think there's a good way to differentiate between the three for fantasy purposes. Take whichever and as many of the 3 you can get and smile.
