    Randy Johnson

    May not be done afterall, he isn't the same Randy in his prime but he really still has been a solid pitcher over his last 10 starts or so.

    The ERA is bloated but his WHIP, K's and BAA are all very respectable.

    he's been pitching much better of late. looks like the Yanks have their top 3 spots in the rotation set. I'd still like to see them add another arm if the cost isn't too high. age is bound to catch up to Moose sooner or later and if Johnson doesn't retire after this year, he definitely will the next.

    He's definitely not done. My guess is he'll have a monster 2nd half.

    By the way, after Minnesota, is there a better 1-3 pitching staff than the Yankees? Moose, RJ, and then Wang... I can't think of a better set of 3 pitchers for any team.

    Weaver has been terrible. And it's not as if a few bad starts have bloated his ERA. He's been consistently bad. Lackey and Santana have been great however.

    The Angels are up there. I like Lackey a lot and same with Santana. Lets give Weaver a little more time before we put him in that category (plus, doesn't he had tendinitus right now?). Colon is a fat bastard that doesn't scare me at all. But yeah, Lackey, Santana, Colon is right up there with Moose, RJ, and Wang.

    Jeff Weaver is a Cardinal.

    Jered Weaver is undefeated.

    Eh... I guess statistically you would have to say so. I remember Kenny Rogers as a Yankee and I just can't believe he's been this good.

    Bevkett has a 4.8 ERA, Lester's WHIP is terrible, Wakefield is on the DL
    Holliday, Burnett, Chacin/Lilly (Chacin when he returns)
    Halladay is a stud, Burnett is still a huge health risk and isn't really great to begin with, Lilly is mediocre and so is Chacin
    Zito, Haren, Harden
    Harden might be out for the year, can't count him.

    Contreras, Buehrle, Garcia
    Garcia, LOL he has been terrible this year, Burhle has been pretty inconsistent as well.

    But Beckett, just has had like 2 rough outings of more then 7 ER.. Where he was off his game, to shoot up his era.. Other than that he has been solid. Johnson is a joke...And we will have to wait and see on Wang.

    Beckett's given up 5 or more runs in 4 of his last 10 outings. 3 of those he gave up 7 runs. For the year he's had 6 5+ ER outings and 4 7+ ER outings. That's more than 25% of his starts where he's given up 5+.

    You obviously haven't payed attention to how Johnson has pitched his last 10 outings. His WHIP is 1.00 and he's averaged a K per inning. And why would we have to wait and see on Wang?? He's a proven big league pitcher IMO.
