Hill is definitely the best starting pitcher on the market, which says a lot about both him and the market. Let's focus on the positives. Hill, despite recurring blister issues, was great for the A's and even better for the Dodgers after a deadline trade thanks in large measure to what is without question the league's best curveball. Though he pitched only 110 regular-season innings, he was last seen shutting out the Cubs over six innings in the NLCS. Hill is Massachusetts-born and a two-time Red Sox veteran, but what matters way more than that is Boston's need for high-end starting pitching depth. The Sox are one of the few teams that could stomach an innings total in the low 100s for Hill, as long as they're good ones.
