But the NL (pitcher hitting 4 times a game) West.....? Come on.
That willl pad some numbers man.

Perhaps not, but it does contridict your point about Youngs career 3.93 is not Peavy's career 3.51
I think it is.

Pay his dues? Buddy, Peavy only has a couple more years experience. And the "good year" tally looks like its about 3 vs 2, Peavy vs Young.
Peavy's only had two above .500 sub 4.00 era years before this year.
So that reasoning really doesn't play.
Hey have fun not addressing any of that stuff later....
