Nope, I'm not overly high on any other Brewer pitcher but Gallardo is a complete stud. Other than that start at Coors last year he had a sub 3 ERA and he is a fully developed pitcher at this point. Lincecum is still a thrower and he is on a bad team that will limit his W.

It was always absurd to believe that any Reds pitcher other than Harang had a chance of being better than Gallardo, I dont' care how much overhpye Voltron and Cueto got. gallardo is a better prospect who has shown more, in a better park and on a better team.

Gallardo does have 110 IP more experience but still, it isn't enough to convince me that he can do that over a whole season. Gallardo is also a bit riskier in terms of injury since he is already hurt and also hasn't pitched a full MLB season yet.

Cueto is bound to hit some rough patches but given his excellent command, I don't think his slumps will last as long as some of the other rookie pitchers we've seen. Who was the last guy to start off their career with a 18/0 K/BB? Patient hitters or not, if he keeps pounding the strike zone then it doesn't matter who is hitting.


Ouch. :-D

That's ok. I stand by what I say. There's still 5 months of baseball left. :-D

Gallardo reminds me of Santana.

I'm a Twins fan so take from that what you want.

Didn't realize that Gallardo is lefty and has a plus plus change up.

Well that makes one of us :-D

Gallardo is head and shoulders better the Cueto, even if you take just last year as your measuring stick.

Gallardo doesn't give up the big innings as far as I can tell.

I guess but it just seems like a weird comparison.
