It's May 22nd and I feel confident saying that barring an injury or a month from hell, there's no way Jake Peavy is going to give up the top spot in these rankings for the rest of the season. No, it seems that everybody else is playing for second place.
Peavy already had a pretty big lead on Gavin Floyd after Week 5, and all he did this week was expand that lead by another 14 points.
Just look at this.
Peavy has 107 points this season. The bullpen has 134 points combined, and if you remove Nathan Jones, Peavy has outscored the entire bullpen. Chris Sale and Phil Humber could combine their numbers on the season and they would still trail Peavy as well.
Keep in mind that, on the whole, Sox pitching has been pretty good this season. That's just how well Peavy has pitched.
The best news this week, though, is seeing John Danks finish with the second highest point total. I'd like to see that a lot more over the coming months.
