The Boston Red Sox are so hot right now, you probably shouldn't be eager to step in front of them right now. However, the Toronto Blue Jays have the starting pitching edge in this contest, as Ryu is off to a great start and he's building on what he did last season. Through 19 innings this season, Ryu has a 0.89 WHIP and 19 strikeouts with just two walks. Ryu looks like an all-star this season. Give me the Blue Jays and cheap price.
