Detwiler, Harrison, Humber IMO.

I just feel Detwiler will easily have the best ERA/WHIP.

The history and projections all say you have this in the right order.

But the real question is do you believe in the new Humber...and I am not just talking this weekend. Last year when he came to the white sox (and was back from TJ surgery) they decided to scrap one of his pitches (sorry forget which) for a slider. That slider, has improved dramatically and was the reason he was able to achieve the perfecto this weekend (along with a ridiculously aggressive M's....I thought some hos they had been hooked up to my MLB the Show controller! LOL )

Anyway...Buck Showalter (skip of the O's) said last week after they faced Humber that he looked impressive and that the slider was a real weapon.

So ... yes ... The old Humber is far below the others....but what about the new? Might be worth the gamble that he is closer to the guy with 14.1IP, 16K, 0.63ERA, and 0.63WHIP from this year...or ....228.2IP, 167K, 3.90ERA, 1.24WHIp guy from before the surgery and new pitch?

Little help with mine?

So the guy has presumably pitched two games, one of them being a perfect game, about the 20th ever in the history of baseball...and you want to extrapolate his stats based on two starts, including the perfect game? I hope you realize his WHIP would have been well over 1.20 from the first game of only 5.1 innings, if it is currently 0.63 after 9 innings of 0.00 WHIP baseball. Also, his stat line is eerily similar to Detwiler's so far, just saying :-b
