Tough call between Lincecum and Greinke. Price, Hanson, Stratsburg have done little so far in the Majors, although Price dominated the Playoffs last year so he's a notch above the other 2 IMO. There's something about Stratsburg that makes me leary on him, not sure what it is.
im with you on this
Yep.. there is a lot to be leary about. Such as:
* a fastball that has topped out at 103 MPH - yes 103!
* an era of 1.27 with hitters batting .172 against him
* a guy who struck out 23 hitters in 1 game AND....
* A guy who stuck out 17 guys in another and threw a no hitter
* a guy who has struck out close to 2 guys PER INNING in his college career
* being the only collegian who played in the Olympics and had a 1.64 era and 1 hit the Netherlands over 7 innings
* a pitcher whose strikeout to walk ratio was 195 to 19
Yep.. a lot to be weary of....
