  1. Ryan says:

    I think your guy Jordan Zimmerman earns a couple more Ws.

    I can see Lester winning 20.

  2. big o says:

    never again on my team .

  3. RollTideTaylor says:

    I hope Zimmerman’s WHIP will be lower than that. But I guess I can’t expect much more from a rookie, huh?

  4. Rotoprofessor says:

    Yea RollTide, it’s really tough with a rookie. It’s possible that it comes a little bit lower, but I wouldn’t expect it to be a sparkling number quite yet.
