Buy low on Bush, the guy has been very good this year but extremely unlucky. These tiers just show that now is the right time to be buying him.
Webb > Kazmir > Zambrano > Bush > Maine > Meche > Wakefield
Thats how I'd rate those guys for fantasy.
Looking at some more important stats than ERA/WHIP here is what we have so far this year.
Webb - 7.31 K/9, 3.75 BB/9, .309 BABIP, 3.70 FIP, 71.7% LOB, 62.2% GB
Kazmir - 7.83 K/9, 3.5 BB/9, .279 BABIP, 4.85 FIP, 79.3% LOB, 44.7% GB
Zambrano - 6.47 K/9, 4.91 BB/9, .286 BABIP, 6.52 FIP, 75.8% LOB, 35.2% GB
Bush - 7.47 K/9, 1.45 BB/9, .356 BABIP, 3.58 FIP, 57% LOB, 47% GB
Maine - 8.47 K/9, 4.12 BB/9, .229 BABIP, 3.35 FIP, 91.8% LOB, 37.1% GB
Meche - 6.52 K/9, 1.86 BB/9, .293 BABIP, 3.78 FIP, 78.4% LOB, 57.1% GB
Looking at those numbers Zambrano has just been terrible this year, Maine has been one of the luckiest pitchers in baseball and Bush has been one of the unluckiest in baseball. Meche interestingly enough deserves the stats he's earned and his GB% is way way up compared to the years he stunk, if he can keep that up he's going to actually be much better than expected this year. Bush has arguably pitched the best out of this bunch and has a 6 ERA to show for it which is why i'd be buying low on him if at all possible.
