In your opinion, who is the best pitcher in baseball right now? I don't mean just for the season.

My vote goes to Jake Peavy. In 4 of his first 7 major league seasons he's had an ERA under 2.90. He currently has 1245 SO in his 1241 IP.

Johan Santana.

It's a shame Ben Sheets is always hurt, because he would be right up there.

It is still Johan Santana no matter what his win loss record is.

Agreed. Great stuff. Great attitude. Heard the interview w/ him after the error/hit incident. All he was worried about was the "W." Interviewer asked him whether he thought it was more important for him to win the Cy Young or the MVP, his answer was the World Series.

Now that he is in the N.L., C.C. is my man!:D:

Tim Lincecum, he might be the youngest and inexperienced of this bunch but that kid will end up being the best so I am reserving my vote early. He throws absolute filth-- an absolute pitching power house.

When he's on...Santana. Right now...Sabathia. Who would I want for the long haul...either of those two. Peavy's ERA would likely be up if he had to face a DH instead of a pitcher 2-3 times a game. I still wouldn't mind any of them on the team though :D:.

Yeah, Lincecum is having the best year of anyone. He just doesn't have the wins (and a shot at the Cy Young) because he plays for the awful Giants.

Cliff Lee. Halladay, Sabathia, and Lincecum are slightly behind him. I'm talking about this year of course.

I agree that you can't argue with Cliff Lee this year, but if I'm determining the best pitcher in baseball, I'm looking beyond that.

That being said, I have many doubts about Lee having any more years close to 2008. He's been around long enough without much of a track record to indicate that this year is nothing more than his career year.

Lincecum is young and has been highly touted as a prospect. His mechanics are rated second to none. I'd gladly build a team around him.

I don't know if Lincecum is the best pitcher out of the bunch that I mentioned. I still think overall, Halladay is the best of the bunch with Sabathia a close second. The reason why is because those guys can take a game into the 8th or 9th on a regular basis. Lincecum might give you a solid 7 innings, but if you have a bullpen like the Giants do, that doesn't guarantee a win.

Verlander is not one of them... :angry:

He's a completely different pitcher. He might have his stuff back, but he still sucks like he did earlier in the season.

So you would rather build your franchise around an old player like Halladay then Lincecum?
I think this statement will be retracted in two or three years... like I said that guy is the definition of unhittable. On Jim Rome is burning Jim Rome interviewed Connor Jackson from the D- Backs and the guy said that facing him was the toughest thing he has ever done. Oh and the D- backs have a sick 1- 2 so imagine what the shows.
