Top 100 SP for a 60-Game Season
Here they are!
I’ll have a whole column of notes on different guys on Monday. I just wanted to get the ranks out and we can start discussing them in the comments. This 60-game season is going to be so wild!
Previous list for comparison, though comparing a full season list to a 60-game one is tough.
Top 100 SP for 60-gm Season
Great list! A couple questions:
1) Projections systems are generally pretty down on Civale, and he had a rough SIERA/xFIP last year, despite posting good numbers. Any reason why you have ranked him substantially higher than the projection systems?
2) I notice Brendan McKay’s not on the list — is this mostly because of the playing time risk, or do you just not see him performing well this year?
I find the projection systems generally worthless on players like Civale. They’re putting EVERYTHING 57.7 IP which just doesn’t make sense to me. A lot of it is his arsenal, CLE’s success with pitching, and me seeing him as more Bieber than Plutko/Tomlin. I think he’s going to be a really solid mid-rotation arm.
Totally agree on Civale. I reached for him in a Dynasty, and can sleep well at night. I see Bieber too. I’m liking Boyd more than you do. 40’s seem to be his neighborhood. If he cuts the HRs and continues with the K’s we could be looking breakout big time. He gets the chance to pitch v Central teams, ditto Civale, which doesn’t hurt.
