Compare and contrast - McGowan vs. Lincecum vs. Hughes

It looks as through the Jays will skip Dustin McGowan's turn in the rotation against the Red Sox, and let him pitch later in the week against the Devil Rays. Because clearly, Victor Zambrano is the answer to a six-game losing streak.

We think that when considering McGowan's first start of the season, it might be worth comparing them to the top pitching prospects to get called up so far this year.

Not a great start for any of them, but we can at least say that McGowan pitched on par with the top prospects in their first game. So let's hope the Jays treat him like something more than a burdensome child as they set their rotation in the coming weeks.
