I recently posted on some Top Staffs using a couple of Ron Shandlers sabermetric stats. That post disappeared faster than a construction site at lunch time. :-t Congrats on your success. ;-D

Why only 1-4? Seems like you are missing 20% of the equation for the regular season.

Right now there are too many Gorzellany/Samardja, Joba/Hughes or Perkins/Duensing scenarios to try to wade through. So I went with the definites.

The rankings I got are a guage for me to see where I may score some wins if I dip to #3 and #4 pitchers. Shandler allows me to see the potential for some nice sleepers at those spots, thus later rounds.

The #5 pitchers I will factor in, and I will, once camps break.

I don't think Hughes or Buchholz makes 30 starts. I really don't think Matsuzaka makes 30 starts. The difference being the 6th starter on the Yankees is Joba or Hughes depending on who is the 5th starter. The 6th starter on the Red Sox is Wakefield. He isn't going to have a 5.9 % HR/FB ratio again. And knuckleballer or not he is 43 years old and in decline.


But Hughes/Joba won't be the Yankees six starter. Whoever does not win the 5th starter spot will go to the bullpen in a late inning role. That player will then need to be stretched out again before he can start. Besides the yankees will likely not want to disturpt the pen by pulling the 8th inning setup for a few starts.

The sixth starter fir the Yankees will be someone other than Hughes/joba.

Camberlain lacks the confidence to be a starter. He is also too inconsistant. Two or three innings is what he is best suited for.
