Mid-Late Round Young Pitchers?

IMHO, Eaton has more upside. He just looked absolutely phenomenal at times last year. IIRC, wasn't he injured, and then when he came back from the injury he just wasn't the same? I remember watching him warm up at Miller Park and being surprised that he was back in action and warning my girlfriend that we might have picked a boring game to go to, because with Eaton pitching there wouldn't be too many runs. But luckily I was wrong and it was a slugfest.

:-?

ERA WHIP INN K GS QS W
Wells 3.28 1.252 197 147 31 21 10
Garcia 4.51 1.326 201 144 33 19 12
Lilly 4.34 1.329 178 147 31 13 12
Eaton 4.08 1.317 183 146 31 17 9
Myers 4.43 1.456 193 143 32 17 14

What is the lovefest with Myers? He has the worst whip by far of this group. They all can get the K's. Wells has the misfortune of playing in Pittsburgh or I would rate him the best. Myers, Lilly, and Garcia all will benefit from being on good teams. I would rank them:

Garcia
Lilly
Wells
Eaton
Myers

I agree...a bit too much love for Myers, and too much hatin' on Lilly. I think Myers, along with most of the Phillies are over-rated because this is supposed to be their year in the NL East. I personally think they'll finish 3rd, but that's another forum. Lilly, though not at 100% right now is just as talented, with the same upside as any of these guys. Down the stretch last season he was 6-1 with a 2.06 ERA. He's gonna be pitching in a hitter frienly park, but he's gonna get much more run support. I agree with wkelly91 that all things being equal I'd take Kip Wells, but I strongly disagree with the thought that Lilly is somehow light years behind the other four.
