Fangraphs top 121 starters: https://twitter.com/federalbaseball/status/1093625730251001861

We have 1 (Max), 21 (Corbin), 22 (Strasburg), and 79 (Sanchez)

Found it interesting that they have Kershaw down to 13, behind Buehler.  Cleveland has 3 of the top 11.

What would folks think of using an "opener" to go through the first inning and then bringing Hellickson in for 2+ times through the batting order?  The article in the post (Saturday? Friday?) mentioned how Hellickson wants to be given a longer leash in games where he has low pitch count (in the 60-70s range) rather than pulled right after he goes through the order twice.  Folks have been back and forth on whether pulling him when he is pitching well in a game, with some saying this burns the bullpen and others saying he can't be trusted.  I/m/o, I'd rather chance giving him multiple batters a 3d time through if it were 5-6-7-8 rather than 1-2-3-4 in a batting order.  I'd think Grace or Glover, or maybe Rosenthal or Barraclough, would be able to get you one inning, and if it means that now Hellickson can give you 6 innings rather than 5, it probably stresses the pen less.

Yes

He probably will.  'Cause Stras hates the spotlight...

Top three is scary good. Back two aren't terrible. Could be sneaky good if they don't regress.

I'd like one more veteran arm, but that's probably selfish since Voth, Fedde, and Ross are going to be in Syracuse waiting.

Are we trading them to the Mets?   :)
