Hughes vs Buchholz is a valid comparison. Where they are in their respective rotations really has nothing to do with anything. 

 

No, no it isn't.  Solid argument though, lots of references.

 

They weren't traded for each other.  They weren't drafted in the same year.  They're not from the same state.  They're not the same age.  They aren't similar style pitchers.  They have different roles on their team.  They aren't similar in any way, shape or form.  

 

It's an illogical comparison used in a weak attempt at boasting.  Following the (lack of) thinking here, I can compare any 2 players in major league baseball, based solely on a misconception that they're somehow comparable.  It's a desperate attempt to pick one Red Sox player, saddle him up to his supposed Yankee twin, and say "my guy is better".  It's absurd, and sad.

Guys. We can't compare Harper and Trout either. JetPotato says so! Drafted different years, different leagues, different sized wieners, different haircuts, one has a hot mom, on doesn't, different astrological signs!!!

This is your best post ever. 

 

Do you want to know why CC made the original post?   It was discussed around here.  Ad nauseam.  $hit....props to MadMike he actually made some half decent arguments for Hughes that the gap is not as big as RSN might think.

 

And a little clue CC was joking...he added a "ha ha" after it.

 

You are literally clueless.

Well done . Can't argue with the mOrons. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience.

If it was discussed here ad nauseum, that doesn't make it any less of a stupid comparison.

 

But like I said, congrats to RSN for having a #2 starter with an ERA better than a #5, even though the gap isn't as big as thought  by some.

The gap is a full run and widening. Just give it up already. You look bad in this.

Says the guy talking about ERA.  LOL.

 

By the way, it's pretty difficult to give up an argument I'm not even making, no matter how desperate you are to engage it.
