    The 3 best pitchers in the MLBs right now

    Kershaw
    Sale
    Felix

    cant put anyone above these, this is dominatation what these guys are doing. I rarely bet on a -200 favorite but you almost have to when these three take the mound.

    I'd put Cueto before Kluber

    Opposing hitters have a BA of .182 against Cueto this year, hitters are batting .201 against Kershaw and .231 vs Kluber for comparison

    Cueto has a BABIP of .227. Pretty sure he won't end up where he is when it's all said and done.

    Kershaw. Hernandez. Cueto. Lester, Sale. Fister doesn't get the recognition he deserves, but doubt he could top these guys. Just my opinion.

    sale is overrated. kersh and felix for sure after that theres a handful of guys you could choose. lester has been dominant since making the switch IMO

    Felix and kershaw are top 2 without a doubt. I'd probably put Sale 3rd. Cueto and Kluber aren't far behind.

    I wouldn't say he's over rated. I would say he over used. And I don't think he's been his most dominating over his last few starts and he's faced some pretty crappy offences. I think he's far from an auto bet. (and throw in the pen......and the WSox horseshit offense)

    Funny coming from the guy that said Locke pitched for the Reds. You also said Howie Kendrick pitched for the Phillies.

    You think Howie has a shot to beat the Giants tonight?

    No particular order.
    I would remove Fister and Cueto and replace with Price and Iwakuma.

    Kershaw is about to get beat tonight.

    Stuff wise I would say Tanaka and Darvish, in general stats and wins Hernandez, Kershaw and Price.
