Best Pitching Staff based by this year's performance

I like the Cubs pitching better in a playoff type setting. The Cardinals staff on paper before this year was a bunch of unprovens and retreads. But for the season, the Cardinals staff has got the job done, but may have some problems in the playoffs IMO.

They've been dropping, and we're overrated because of the park anyway.

Not if you count all IP by all guys who have started. Then it's Cubs 3.72 versus 3.81

That's pretty much why I said Cubs:
Zambrano 2.94 ERA, 1.23 WHIP
Clement 3.44 ERA, 1.25 WHIP
Maddux 3.7 ERA, 1.18 WHIP
Wood (106.1 IP) 3.3 ERA, 1.2 WHIP
Prior (81.1 IP) 4.87 ERA, 1.51 WHIP

It's disgusting that I own both Prior and Zito.

Mitre had bad outings for the Cubbies, but Glendon Rusch was superb in his fill-in starts. I can't find the stats for just his starts, but his total stats are:
3.67 ERA, 1.24 WHIP in 105.1 IP (12 starts)

The Cards' has more depth it seems, but the Cubbies' Zambrano and Clement at the top is too good.

right now, cards and Braves are tied at 3.67.

a couple of Mets SP are amongst the luckiest in all of baseball.

and i'd be careful not to overlook the AL pitching staffs. the difference between the production of 7,8,9 hitters in the AL and NL is staggering.

anyways, i think its the Cards for now. ;-D
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]
