Masahiro Tanaka: A Reader Poll

by Ben Lindbergh


Back in December of 2011, Kevin Goldstein polled the industry on Yu Darvish, asking 10 sources whether they'd prefer Darvish to a selection of five other right-handed starters. I'm doing something similar for Masahiro Tanaka, and the results will appear in a piece at BP later this week. But I want to know what you think as well as what the baseball insiders think, so I'm collecting your survey responses below, for inclusion in the article.

The only instructions: Consider 2014 performance only, and don't consider salary. I just want to know which pitcher you think will be better this year, Tanaka or each of the other guys. Have at it.

*Update* The results are in, so you can stop voting.
