Kershaw has filthy stuff and can get good hitters to chase bad pitches. Moore doesn't posses this yet. If he worked on improving his control just a little and making better pitch selection then yes I see the potential. I just don't think it will be this year and the AL East even with a hobbled YankSox is still offensively inclined.


I remember watching Kershaw early in his career and thinking the same thing. I recall one game against the Mets where he walked the ballpark and couldn't get anybody out.

Moore has absolutely filthy stuff. Once he learns how to pitch a bit better, he'll be fine and shouldn't be far off from what David Price does.

I was thinking the same thing about the Astros matchups. A lot of people are over looking that aspect. Not to ruin the thread, but I wonder if that will work well for guys like Pujols & Hamilton now that they get to face Astros pitching so much this year.

dont base picks on the possiblity of facing 1 team, especially as a pitcher, it could be as little as 1-2 starts, maybe 3-4 tops, not really all that big of a factor.
