Hampton, Lackey or Arroyo?

Postby LTMac » Mon Aug 02, 2004 12:15 am

Which starter do you think will produce the best numbers over the final 2 months of the season--Hampton, Lackey, or Arroyo?

And would you rate Towers, Hendrickson, Weaver, or Ponson ahead of any of these three?

Weaver looks to be back to somewhere near his best which is ahead of all of those guys.

Of the first 3 you mentioned I like Lackey the best of them pitching at home and Arroyo on the road.

I like Arroyo of those 3. K's are up, BB's are down, good run support, and except for a bad outting vs the Yanks he's been very consistent of late.

Hampton has been winning and looking pretty good doing it and also looks primed for a good second half. Lackey has not been as consistent, but certainly has the talent to be productive and has a pretty easy August schedule.

I'd put Weaver in with this bunch but not appreciably ahead.

this is a good question because these are all guys who could potentially be available FA's in many leagues....if I had to choose one guy to stick with for the remainder of the season I would probably give the nod to arroyo, although lackey's recent success is hard to ignore. as redsox88 noted above, arroyo is solid on the road and should round into form at home eventually.
