Has gone 6 or more innings in every single start this year, has only allowed more than 3 ER once all season, and hasn't failed to throw a QS since April. Guy has probably been the most reliable starter they've had despite Cain and Bumgarner being more dominant.
Vogelsong's consistency isn't quite up to par with Zimm's.
I dug a little deeper for the sake of this discussion and found these interesting bits:
Vogelsong has pitched a batter to a 3-0 count 11 times this year - walking the batter 10 of the 11 times.
Zimmerman has pitched to a 3-0 count 2 times this year - walking one of them.
Vogelsong has a 1.42 ERA at home, a 3.35 ERA on the road
Zimmerman has a 2.56 ERA at home, a 2.03 ERA on the road
Listen, I like Vogelsong very much and believe in him as a bona fide ace, I'm just making the case that Zimmerman is just a tad better.
