Week 10 Pitchers Poll: So Many Reasons To Be Sad

Much like the Hitters Poll, there was no Pitchers Poll last week. Also much like the Hitters Poll, there weren't many changes in the rankings.

Though there was one Sox pitcher who jumped up quite a few spots. Do you think you can guess who it is? I may have left a hint for you up top.

Oh you're so smart!
1Jake Peavy 136 1 14
2Chris Sale 135 2 21
3Gavin Floyd 87 3 8
4Phil Humber 62 4 8
5Nathan Jones 53 5 6
6Jose Quintana 51 1130
7Matt Thornton 40 77
8Addison Reed39 8 7
8Hector Santiago  39 9 8
10Jesse Crain 36 10 6
11John Danks 34 6 0
12Zach Stewart 21 12 4
13Will Ohman 13 135
14Eric Stults 7 14 0
15Dylan Axelrod 6 150

Yep, Jose Quintana jumped up five spots because he pitched really well in his two starts the last two weeks while everybody else pitched pretty poorly. You're probably wondering how Phil Humber and Gavin Floyd picked up any points, but remember this is two weeks and there were two starts -- actually I think Gavin made three starts -- since the last rankings.

So their points are all from basically existing to eat up some innings over that time. Certainly not because they did anything well.

Other than that, the only thing of consequence in the rankings this week is that Chris Sale now trails Jake Peavy by only a point.
