Zambrano has the worst K's/9 of this group...
Here are the actual #'s...not sure where Hootie got his...
Prior - 10.54
Pedro - 9.41
Wood - 9.24
Zambrano - 8.07
Pedro in the NL will help his strikeout numbers a bit...but for those of you who don't think his decreased velocity hurts him...what do you think makes a changeup so effective?!?...the changeup doesn't work as well when there's less speed difference between it and your fastball.
I'm not hating Pedro, I just think he's on a fast decline at this point in his career. All the others have immense upside potential.
