After debuting the first Hitters Power Poll of the season earlier today, it's now time for the Pitchers Power Poll.
And, as I'm sure we were all expecting before the season started, Jake Peavy is on top. And you don't even get extra points for injuries, or bulldogging, or getting drunk in Wrigleyville with fat topless guys or anything! He did it all on merit!
Here's the list.
As you can see, the scoring for pitchers doesn't equate to the same amount of points for hitters, which makes Peavy's seven-point lead over Gavin Floyd that much more impressive. Then there's Matt Thornton who has been the best arm out of the bullpen so far this season, in what had been a pretty impressive bullpen before Monday night.
Still, while it's nice to see Peavy at the top of the list, if the White Sox want to have a real shot this season, we're going to need to see Chris Sale and John Danks climbing the ladder.
