Best Pitching Staff 2010

Postby poisonsag » Thu Feb 18, 2010 3:52 am

Hey baseball fantasy fans, i am new here. I am very excited to join this site and share, view my and other's ideas on baseball fantasy.

So i am going to start my thread by asking you guys what is going to be the best pitching staff this year?

Decision should be based on W, ERA, SHO (TEAM), hits, BB and K

I am going with the yankees > Giants> Dodgers. Yankees because i am a huge fan of yankees, but i am not being biased. I said above decision should be based on W and other pitching stats. Yanks might be bad at team ERA, but they are going to have the most wins this season with prolly 3rd or 4th highest in K.
Although a team that might shine really heavy i think is CWS.

Lets look at the rotation,
Jake Peavy
Mark Buehrle
Gavin Floyd
John Danks
Freddy Garcia
And of course Bobby Jenks

Share your opinions.
I support Two Teams -----> The Yankees
And,
The other who defeats ----> Red Sox

Of course ;-7
The same Bobby Jenks that the White Sox are having problems with (attitude and fitness), and will probably trade in '10 at some stage? :-? :-D


Rotations I'm liking right now:

Braves
White Sox
Rays
Oakland (if 700 people don't go on the DL)
Yankees
Boston (If someone from Buccholz/Tazawa/Dice-K pitches decently)

;-D

You probably could make a fine rotation from the guys at the College World Series.

Depending on how Bonderman performs this year Detroit has a top-5 rotation.

Red Sox

Lackey
Beckett
Lester
Buchholz
Dice K/ Wakefield/ and the many other minor league options

i give them the nod based on depth. Yankees are a close second.

wins as recorded by a SP are largely a factor of luck...so why use it to judge who's the best?

If you want to judge who has the best rotation, you look at who has Roy Halladay and base your arguement on other stats that support it while dismissing stats that don't. :-b

He's not a Blue Jay anymore, it is yet to be seen if that mind set will carry over to Philly ;-7

Definitly Red Sox. Lester/Beckett/Lackey/DMats/Buchholz>>>>>all. Yankees are a close 2nd if Hughes/Chamberlain pull through.

Lester/Beckett/Lackey, yes. Dice-K and Buchholz are far from sure things.

Yanks have a strong, established 1-4.

Rays have something nice going on. Garza might take that step forward this year.

A lot of this depends on health. If Bedard is healthy, I think Seattle easily has the best 1-2-3 combo in the majors, not to mention Snell is a solid bounce-back candidate.

What about the Angels? They don't have any aces, but 1-5 they are pretty damn solid. Nobody likes Joe Saunders but he gets the job done. Jered Weaver is probably underrated at this point in his career. Kazmir was lights out after the trade and Santana is capable of repeating '08. Piniero is a good fit for that team and might be the best 5 starter in baseball.

I have no idea why Oakland or the Cubs are on this list. Even if Sheets stays healthy you're relying on a 21 year old and a guy who had one decent season in Duchscherer. Braden is an underrated 4 though and Cahill is another young arm. Too many questions though that aren't even health related.

Even after trading Vazquez, Atlanta is pretty solid too provided Hudson is healthy. Even if he isn't, Lowe should rebound and Hanson/Jurrjens is a nice top of the rotation.

As far as the future is concerned, Detroit, SF and Texas are stacked with young arms. Gotta like those rotations down the line.

The Giants have to be in the conversation. The 1-2 punch of Lincecum and Cain is the best in the majors. Add in that Jonathan Sanchez had an outrageous k/9 last year of 9.75 (6th among starters), and you've got an elite heart of the rotation.

Zito has turned into at least a decent starter, if obviously overpaid, and madison bumgarner is a top 10 prospect.

I'd say the Red Sox and a couple other teams certainly give the Giants a run for their money at this point, but the SF rotation is brimming with promise.
