last year i felt like these were the two up and coming starting pitchers. but now it seems like everyone thinks strasburg is a top 3 starter this year and sale is nothing. is there any real reason for a difference of around 50 in adp or is this just a case of name recognition for strasburg?
I wouldn't say Sale is nothing. Strasburg is a high end ace while Sale is a lower end ace. The big difference are the Ks. Stras had 197 Ks in 159 IP while Sale posted 192 Ks in 192 IP. Many people wonder if Sale can repeat those numbers this year, but everyone knows Stras will post even better numbers with the innnings pitched limit lifted for 2013. In my opinion both are great options.
