      Maine, by a longshot. Aside from his low BABIP (which wasn't as freakish as people made it out to be), he doesn't project to being much of a fluke. Bannister? Uhh, K/9 ratio, BABIP, and GO/FO would all indicate a massive fluke (and while I agree that getting Burgos in return was a mistake, I do agree we should've traded the guy for Greinke or Buckner).

            Maine and I don't know that it's very close.

                Bannister has had success in the tougher league and with a worse supporting cast.

                  Yes, but with nothing even resembling statistics (good, bad, or indifferent) from the rest of his professional career. Bannister developed a pitch-to-contact changeup on his own volition and used this pitch and not much else (changeup and curve with the occassional fastball...his minor league repertoire was fastball, cutter, slider, curve...also note that Bannister was a strikeout pitcher in the Minors). With Maine, he had showed flashes of his current self in the Minor Leagues and 2006 with a only a very slightly different pitch repertoire (fastball, knucklecurve as change, regular curve as opposed to fastball, changeup, slider).
