Kinda but this is based on SI's rankings.

Just curious as to why Billingsley has no votes? Yet Lincecum and Cain have 12 and 9. Even though theres isnt much to compare Bills has a better career ERA+ then Cain and is only 5 points less then Lincecum. I meant to vote for him but I guess I didnt click it.

if he is on the list why not josh johnson? same year lirano dominated the AL, Johnson did the NL both been down for an injury since then. But Johnson lead the NL in ERA for 3/4 of the year that year

But the results haven't been there this year.

Is Jeremy Bonderman not the most overrated SP over the past 2-3 years? The guy is no good. He's barely a #4/5 SP & people are always talking about him as one of the best young SP's in the game. He's never going to be a top of the rotation SP.

I would have to agree with you here. How anyone views this guy as a decent starting pitcher is beyond me, he has yet to post a "good year", 2006 was barely even average and that was his best season. If im the Tigers I would have traded him quite some time ago.

And now that his trade value is at rock bottom they have kept him in hopes of him somehow realizing some of that "potential".

Didn't choose Verlander based on his rough 2008 season thus far.

Yeah, that has sure turned out great for them. I believe that there was talks of a clean swap of him for Renteria instead of the one where they traded Jurrjens, if that was true the Tigers must be looking pretty dumb right now.
