We will be posting our second half starting pitcher rankings in the next few days, and after ranking the starting pitchers, I saw this question on the ESPN chat with AJ Mass yesterday:
I ranked Volquez about spots ahead of Burnett, maybe 25 spots. I think Volquez has pitched well enough in the minors to be ranked in the top 50 or so starting pitchers for the second half. Could that be because I own him in two leagues? No. Volquez was a solid starting pitcher when he was healthy back in 2008, when he went 17-6 with over 200 strikeouts.
Who would you rather have for the second half?
