who would you put ahead of him besides centro? You can make a case for andrews, and in a championship style setup he would probably have the edge. In a DL style race though I am taking jager.
Don't cherry pick the race type. If you want to find out who the best is, you do the whole shebang - Olympic trials style!
If we are talking about CURRENT fitness:
Definitely 1000000% would beat him:
Add Rupp if we give the guys a few months to train for it
so you say that I don't get to pick the race type, then you go ahead and say what style of race you are using?
There is zero chance that those "probably" guys win more than 2 races out of 10 against jager, I give Blankenship 3, murphy and Andrews probably are close to 50/50 against jager right now if they ran 10 times.
Also rupp could have a year to specifically train for a 1500 against jager with no other purpose and still win no more than 1 (if that) out of 10.
