I need a distraction from the debacle that is the Royals. I was watching Ubaldo Jimenez look amazing once again tonight (albeit slightly inefficient with his pitches) and it got me thinking about what current pitchers I'd really like to have if I was starting a team.
My three: Greinke, Lincecum, Jimenez
Next on my list was Felix Hernandez and you will certainly get no argument from me if he's one of your three. The pool I chose from also included Verlander, Hanson, Kershaw, and Josh Johnson. I stayed away from guys nearing or over 30 but you could also make a case for someone like Halladay, Wainwright, Sabathia, or Haren. I think it's too early to pick someone like Strasburg or Chapman.
Who would you pick?
