Matt Cain and Felix Hernandez really, really suck

Just thought I would pass along just how eerily similar the two are. Both were phenoms coming up through the PCL back in 2005. Hernandez got promoted first, and Cain led the PCL in K's that year I believe. Although had Felix stayed a little longer, he would have contended for that title I'm sure. Anyway here is their strikingly similar statistics. You might be surprised that Cain is better in a few categories....

 

Matt Cain (age 23)

104 G, 103 GS, 647 2/3 IP, 552 H, 282 R, 270 ER, 54 HR, 272 BB, 552 SO, 30 W, 42 L, 1.27 WHIP, .230 BAA, 3.75 ERA, 4 CG, 2 SHO

 

Felix Hernandez (age 22)

104 G, 104 GS, 666 1/3 IP, 663 H, 304 R, 281 ER, 65 HR, 216 BB, 593 SO, 39 W, 36 L, 1.39 WHIP, .260 BAA, 3.80 ERA, 5 CG, 2 SHO

Cain's start tonight is not included, and Felix makes his last start tomorrow. But I just find it funny that Hernandez is so highly touted and talked about and Cain is usually ignored. Maybe that's due to Lincecum's presence, Idk. Obviously both have not played for very good teams, although the Mariners weren't terrible last year. So who sucks more, and who do you think will be the worst of the two in the future?
