now that's a crapshoot. both teams have good offenses, the white sox have a crappier division to pitch to, but lowe has showed flashes that handily beatdown buehrle.

then again buehrle in 01-02 was a lock for 15+ wins and a 3.something ERA.

i guess i'd give it to derek lowe. buehrle's the definition of a finesse pitcher and he's finessed himself to 18 ER over his last 3 starts against kansas city new york and tampa bay. i think he'll get back on track somewhat, but i look at him being one of those ~4+ era 15 win pitchers mainly because of a good offense behind him. petitte v2.0?

Lowe by far. he just had one lousy outing when pitching on ten days rest, (sinker ball pitchers pitch best when tired, or so says the legend), and two very good outings. his era will be about 3.5, and should win about 18 games.

M. Buehrle- era has gotten worst eash of the past three years and i hate to take players whose careers are in a tailspin.
