Yeah you are right. Verlander, Hamels, Billinglley all sucked last year.

Some people think he will be above below average but not quite average. I think he will be above above average. Which I suppose means he still falls under above average. So yeah, I guess the writer covered most of the bases here. :-b

for some reason I chose to trade Lincecum this offseason instead of Cain. Maybe because of a more solid build for Cain, simpler mechanic. Or just what I think are better potential. We shall see.

if i had to choose one at this point in time itd be cain as well...he has more major league time under his belt and is younger than lincecum...don't get me wrong, i absolutely love lincecum and think he has a great chance at living up to his hype, but cain is definitely the more solid, safer pitcher

Cain has some pretty mediocre peripherals, if he gets traded to a park that doesn't hold his HR's he'll be a 4+ ERA guy unless he improves his control. I like Cain(in a pure pitchers park at least) but I don't think I could keep him over Lincecum.

I think Cain will be awesome this year. Just a hunch.

If he can keep his control from the 2nd half of last year I agree with you. Of course he'll be awesome with fewer K's than Lincecum and they'll both get about 10 wins.
