Meche (10-7, 4.70)          Maroth (8-11, 4.57)

I like to think of Mike Maroth's career as Jorge Campillo's 40th percentile performance (nevermind the handedness difference). He doesn't miss many bats with his C-grade repertoire, but he stays around the zone and gets a few groundballs (not that you'd be able to guess that based on his home run rate). As for Meche, if he's bad when healthy, how's he going to pitch with a sore shoulder? Whatever. It's Yuniesky Betancourt's world; we're just living in it.
