2017 Top Ten Right Now - Starting Pitchers

Sunday, February 26, 2017

Hey, it's another baseball season.  My 40th, as a matter of fact.  The first season I remember from the beginning was '78; I was 7.  For most of those seasons I've kept some version of lists like this.

The first list is the MLB Network "shredder" projection for the ten best starting pitchers for the 2017 season, the second is the Bill James list.  Finally, me - and I take the list out to 20. I'm going to do two passes at this, one now, the second just before the start of the season. Number is my WAR projection, largely just included for my purposes.

right fielders are here.
