2013 - A.J. Burnett 10-11 30 30 1 0 0 0 191.0 165 79 70 11 67 209 3.30 1.21

Holy hell, Wainwright had a much more impressive season than I thought he did. 241 innings? That's more than seven innings a start. Remember how impressed we were when Correia averaged seven innings a start in April? Wainwright did that all damn season.

Burnett, to his credit, has had a really good season, too. Great strikeout rates, he's getting more ground balls thanks to that two-seamer, and he's done a fantastic job of limiting base runners - especially when he's working his command.

2013 - Kris Medlen 15-12 32 31 0 0 0 0 197.0 194 77 68 18 47 157 3.11 1.22

2013 - Clayton Kershaw 16-9 35 33 3 2 0 0 236.0 164 55 48 11 52 232 1.83 .92

Medlen made a pretty smooth transition to a full time starter. The other three guys taking the hill tonight could be considered aces - even Burnett in his own way - but it's still been an impressive debut into the starter's game.

As for Kershaw? I might take him over any starter in baseball right now.
