Rank You Most Important #3/#4
Horse. Shark. Peavy.
Who do you think is the most critical to the success/failure of the team this year? Assuming the other 2 meet expectations.
Before you quick-draw to Shark just remember that while he’s expected to be the #3 he doesn’t HAVE to be the #3. And really, in the regular season, 3 and 4 are pretty interchangeable. So if all 3 are healthy and meeting expectations I don’t think you could snap-call Shark as more critical to the other 2 in the march towards the 2016 post season.Any of those guys COULD be the #3/#4.
However, if Shark pulls a Timmy and sucks but keeps getting run out there every fifth day, I think that would be the most damaging to the team. You have to assume that if Horse and/or Peavy are faltering it would be due to health and they would probably get shelved in favor of Hest-by-Hest or some Blackburny-equiv.
So by that measure, Shark could do the most damage to the season if he sucks simply because he’ll be given more rope than the other 2.
