Karablog: Who are the top 10 starting pitchers to draft in 2019?

I find it somewhat fascinating that Tampa Bay Rays left-hander Blake Snell and New York Mets right-hander Jacob deGrom rank Nos. 3 and 4 on the ESPN full-season Player Rater for statistical value.

Make no mistake, these are my two picks for the Cy Young Awards in their respective leagues, as Snell became the second Rays player ever to win 20 games, and deGrom has been the signature pitcher this season for run prevention, but also for lack of run support. He has a mere eight wins, even though it is not fair and yes, wins are a ridiculous category and tell us so little. Still, fantasy managers have received similar value for each!
