Over the last couple years, I think that it's easy to argue Zimm over Stras. Fister and Roark have had great years. Gio's baller 2012 feels like a diatant memory now. Stras just kind of does his thing under the microscope.
He's not a particularly likeable guy, based on talking to others. Not a dick or anything like that. Just kind of aloof. Between that, being arguably the greatest pitching prospect of all-time, the Shutdown, and his workload being so heavily monitored, he needs to be a world beater to get people off his back rather than merely good. Similar in some ways to Harper, except he kind of is a dick.
Things can change quickly though.
