I can keep either of these two starting pitchers, and I am frankly stumped given the large upside for both of them. Even though Hamels had the better season last year, I feel the best is yet to come from Hanson.
What do you guys think? As always, I'll answer any of yours - just post a link.
"One of the teams represents truth, justice, the American way, and underdogs everywhere. The other represents George Steinbrenner!" - U.S. News and World Reports columnist John Leo on the difference between the Mets and the Yankees.
For a split second I read this as "Tommy Hunter or Cole Hamels" and I almost flipped out, haha.
Cole had a sneaky good finish to last season--we're talking top lefty in the majors good. He had a good offseason and is definitely primed to show that he is just as valuable in that rotation as anyone else. I'd bank on Cole taking his game to another level just to show he belongs.
Tommy is great, there's no doubt about it--but I think Cole is ranked lower than he should be on ESPN.
