I did check Yahoo and over the past month, Liriano is ranked higher than Hamels (43rd versus 44th).

Nolasco is 19th...better keep him over Hamels as well. :-/ See the logic in using small sample sizes?

His numbers have been great since he's been called up but i that is mostly due to the fact that his 7 or so starts have come against really poor offenses. i'm still waiting to see how he responds to some of the top AL lineups.


His velocity could be down because he has matured and is pitching smarter. Maybe he has realized that you don't have to throw 95 the whole game. As long as he is effective I don't care how low his velocity is.


A little optimistic are we?
I would side with the injury on this one.

I think the velocity returns over the off season and he is back to old form next year. In terms of dynasty or keeper, I'd take him over Hamels.
