Sale, THIS YEAR, is not going to wow. He could eventually, but I wouldn't buy into the recent phenomenon of relief pitchers turned starter.
idk how anyone can say niese over sale. and especially being the best fantasy pitcher when santana is back? no one has a problem with wainwright but santana all of a sudden is a nobody pitcher.
niese has never had a sub 4 era going back to atleast 08 in the minors...
sale has been better then niese in ever aspect of the game.
sale was so good he was in the majors the same year he was drafted, how many players can say that?
and plus each pitcher will pitch in the division 11-13 times, yea i really want my guy facing the marlins,nationals, braves and phillies that much over the tigers,indians, royals, twins.
ive watched almost all of niese's starts and there is nothing special about him, he is an ok pitcher is k/9 may be above 7 but he will not get W or QS he will not help you in whip or era.
