Rank a few hurlers for me

Postby DEF » Tue Jul 06, 2004 3:35 am

How would you rank the following pitchers for the rest of this year only? And how significant are the differences between them? Are they all in the same class and not worth making a switch, or are any superior enough to warrant dropping one of the others for them? Comments about why you rank them how you do in additon to a simple list would be most welcome. Thanks.

The sample group:

Brandon Webb
Woody Williams
Ted Lilly
Adam Eaton

Eaton - Poised for a great second half IMO
Williams - Getting older, but he and Morris still have the stuff and should have pretty good second halfs and carry the rotation to lighten the load on Carpenter, Marquis, and Suppan (At least I hope they do :-D)

Webb - Number one or two if he can return to last year's form, but with the single A D-Backs, that isn't very likely

Eaton- Nice park, pretty good pitcher. Maturing.
WW and Webb- WW if you want wins and a slightly better WHIP, Webb if you want ERA. I'd prefer Webb, because he has the higher ceiling, with just about the same risk. Close, though.
Lilly- No run support, never has been very consistent with his control and stuff.
