Mason’s point on not ranking Ashby and Whitlock is annoying. Tell us where you would put them “if they were” going to be a SP and move on. Lots of eye rolling.

Even if they don’t start, a lot of times good middle relievers are more valuable then bad starters. Ashby’s projected for 11 K/9 over 90 innings with good ratios. How is that different from Justin’s #84 SP, Dinelson Lamet?

No high rolling here. Why would you expect a starting pitcher ranking for a guy he doesn’t believe will be a starting pitcher
