• Wild Thought: If Rocks Make Classic, Could Yanks Match-Up?

    Posted by on September 23rd, 2009 · Comments (1)

    Playing around with this query, leads to today’s wild thought. Which of these starting rotations would you rather have on your team, this season:

    Ryan Dempster / Carlos Zambrano / Rich Harden / Ted Lilly
    C.C. Sabathia / Andy Pettitte / A.J. Burnett / Joba Chamberlain
    Barry Zito / Matt Cain / Tim Lincecum / Jonathan Sanchez

    Is the Cubs front four better than the Yankees current front four? How about the Giants…are their starting pitchers, listed here, a better bunch this season than what the Yankees have?

    What about the 2009 Rockies?

    Would you rather have four of their starters from the group of:

    Jorge de la Rosa / Ubaldo Jimenez / Jason Hammel / Jason Marquis / Aaron Cook

    over the Yankees big four this season?

    It will be an interesting match-up if both the Yankees and the Rockies make the World Series this year, no?

      Out of these 13 pitchers, how many have had success in the American League?

      The answer is one, Ted Lilly.

      He was at best a 3-4 starter. Jiminez has good stuff, Zambrano has good stuff. How would they pitch in the AL? Dont know, but it is a good question.

      Lincicum is the only pitcher I would fear on this list. But what about the cards?
      Carpenter and Wainwright are nasty..
      So give me the Yankees front three, and I will take my shot on the fourth day if I have to..
