1. Who’s a better Ace: Yu Darvish or Felix Hernandez?
We’ll look at numbers first:
Yu Darvish 30-18 (.628), 3.22 ERA, 1.154 WHIP, SO/BB:3
Felix Hernandez 113-86 (.568), 3.18 ERA, 1.198 WHIP, SO/BB: 3.28
So to say the least this is extremely evenly matched but i’m going to say Yu Darvish because to me the best formula for determining who is a better pitcher is you take their opponent’s average (1B+2*2B+3*3B+4*4B)/AB. That is better known as slugging percentage. So I did the numbers and Darvish’s is .335 and Hernanadez’s is .355 so Darvish’s better by a pretty big margin.
2. Best non-pitcher?
You’ve got to give it to Robinson Cano. He is such a power hitter, he has a .503 slugging percentage and has hit 204 HR’s in his career.
3. Who will win?
RANGERS! 2-1 Yu Darvish is just such a beast!
