And 2/4 categories he's better in are not indicative of # of starts.....K's he already had more. Even so, Give him 5 more wins and Hudson still outperformed him. You guys are way overating Prior.

Prior was hurt most of last year, and he never fuly recovered. He was a different guy last year. Throw the numbers away and what do you get? Prior fully healthy and Hudson pitching in a more neutral park. What do you get? Advantage Prior. He is and will always be better barring more injury setbacks.

Its stupid to just use 2004 stats. In 03, Prior was dominating, and he is much more likely to repeat that performance than 04s, a year in which he was hampered by an injury.

I also believe...Prior...Hudson...Halladay...

Never been a very big Halladay fan..yes...I know he will be good...but i just value the other two higher..

It all comes down to personal preference. I personally don't trust Prior next year, but that's just because he burned me when I traded for him last year (I thought he would finish strong).

My ranking would be: Hudson, Halladay, Prior...but I realize that many people would disagree and my reasoning for Prior being last is pretty simple, yet unsophisticated (spite). :-]

prior's last three starts (against CIN, NYM, and FLA):

24.1 IP
12 hits
4 walks
30 k's
2 ERs

something to consider

furthermore, i'd go prior, hudson, halladay. i'd take a healthy prior over a healthy hudson and halladay, and since all three had an injury plagued year, i'm not quite sure how he can go lower than these guys. take the risk

Hadn't considered Prior's last 3. Who were they against?
