I don't get why so many teams out there have homegrown Aces but we can only manage to produce 0 since Doc Gooden and Scott Kazmir doesn't count. Now I could be wrong on this but correct if I'm wrong please.
I mean I see guys like Tim Lincecum, Cole Hamels, Brandon Webb, Jon Lester, Roy Oswalt, Jake Peavy, to name a few. Even guys like Santana, Sabathia, Burnett, Zito, guys who signed huge FA contracts. I never seen in my years watching baseball any homegrown Mets pitchers receive any huge deals like that and never seen any pitchers we can compare to Lincecum, Hamels, etc. Except maybe when Izzy got better when we sent him to STL but he doesn't compare to those guys either. Remember Paul Wilson and Bill Pulsipher our saviors?
Will Pelfrey be our 1st in a very long time? Who knows? Is Guerra Mulvey or Humber gonna turn out to be potential Aces in MIN? Who knows?
SO with all that being said, which one of these guys from our farm system do you think has the best shot at being a homegrown Ace? (excluding Mike Pelfrey)
