That's good to hear. He's really rocketing up the charts.

I can see the rotation next year being Buehrle, Danks, Floyd, Richard, and Hudson.

I wasn't taking a shot at you. It's just that #1 starter tends to be code for "throws 97 mph" when success in the majors depends on a lot of non-radar-gun-related abilities like command.

Now the sabre-boys say that to be an elite pitcher you have to strike out a lot of batters; but to do so, you don't have to be a flamethrower. Now, I'm not sure I buy that Ks are that indicative of pitcher quality, but there is somewhat a correlation.

I'm a bigger fan of looking at K:BB and WHIP. K/9 isn't the greatest indicator IMO.
