Week 4 Pitchers Poll: Oh Man This Is Going To Get Ugly

This is going to start getting ugly. After the first few weeks of the season, John Danks was the only real question mark in the starting rotation, but I wasn't exactly worried about him being terrible all season.

Now he has to stop being terrible because once you get past Jake Peavy and Gavin Floyd it's best to just avert your eyes.

Look at this mess.

1Jake Peavy 79 1 12
2Gavin Floyd 60 2 13
3Chris Sale 49 3 10
4Addison Reed 24 6 2
5Phil Humber 23 5 -3
6John Danks 22 60
7Matt Thornton 19 4-8
8Jesse Crain 16 8 0
9Hector Santiago  14 9 4
10Nathan Jones 12 10 3
11Zach Stewart 8 11 3
12Jose Quintana 7 NA 7
13Dylan Axelrod 6 134
13Will Ohman 6 11 1
13Eric Stults 6 NA6

Now, Chris Sale stays in third place because of what will be his final start of the season, and we better hope he starts tumbling down this list or else the Sox will be in a lot of trouble.

Also, do you notice who is in fourth place on this list? I bet Robin Ventura doesn't. The bad news for Addison Reed is that Matt Thornton was in fourth last week and he went out and had a terrible week.

Then there's Jose Quintana, who came in as a reliever on Monday, pitched wonderfully and finds himself ahead of three others in spite of one appearance. Which is why he was shipped back to the minors on Monday night.
