Tomorrow, I'll post my own list. But first, some comments on your comments:
- I think Matt Garza is the most talented pitcher on this team. It may not show in his win-loss record, and it doesn't help that he was injured recently, but the guy has great stuff, and has really benefitted from the switch from AL East to NL Central. Look at that K-rate: 75 in 66 IP! I'll have him ahead of both Z and Marmol in my rankings.
- It's interesting; I was about to ask: "Who would you rather have at the plate in the bottom of the ninth in a tie game with a runner on second and two outs: Barney, Pena, or Aramis?" The point was to try to show that Pena and Aramis are clearly better, but actually, considering the need for a hit of any kind in that situation, I think the answer might be Barney. But on a related note, who would you rather have up with two outs and a man on first? or nobody on? It's an interesting topic.
- I think Byrd is better than Soriano. That's all I'll say on the matter for now.
How does this list look? Do you agree with the masses? Who's too high, or too low?
