I question the Myers selection....


But then again I assume you could throw any of a number of young pitchers in that mix there....



There is no arguement on the top 4...


You could make an arguement for any of them being #1.....

But few will doubt they belong there.


AJ has not transcended his 'stuff' into major league success....

But then again Myers has really shown nothing significant in the majors... at least compared to other 'young' pitchers....


At this point in their careers, AJ has shown much more than Myers...


Then again I have zero idea what Dibble's criteria is.

I too agree that, I don't think Myers should be at 5 but...

He did clearly outduel Prior when they met.

I remember that game.....


However...


You cannot base how good a pitcher is based on one start....


Be it against Mark Prior, Randy Johnson, or any Joe Blow ....
