Next 3 Years: Kazmir or Wade Miller or Garrett Anderson

Postby red » Fri Mar 11, 2005 1:25 pm

Hey guys, contract league question. I've narrowed it down to these three guys, I'll get one of them for the next 3 years.
Who would you pick?

Edit: The three guys are Kazmir, Wade Miller or Garrett.

I know that's the title of the thread but someone got confused the other day.

Garret Anderson, he is just simply the best of these three players. Kazmir has proved little on the ML level, and Wade Miller is a good pitcher, but, not nearly as valuable as Anderson.

I agree. Even if Anderson's power numbers don't rebound he's a good average hitter in a great lineup and should continue to put up around 100/25/100 for the forseeable future

Agree, Anderson.

But maybe try to package two of them for someone better? There are a lot of people who are giddy about Kazmir these days.

If Anderson is healthy for 3 years, he's your guy. I dont see that as likely. His back has given him serious problems. He has an arthritis problem as well. Wade Miller's arm troubles are worrisome and Kazmir has proved nothing. For this year, Id go with Anderson but I think Kazmir has great potential to be a top notch started in the next year or two. Miller has some nasty stuff but Im hearing that surgery may be needed for him to be as effective as he can be. Hard choice. It would definitely go down to the wire and probably be based on what I need. Overall, Id say keep Garrett Anderson because he is going to have a good year if healthy. You can then trade Anderson for a up and comer such as Kazmir.

I personally love young guns, but even still I'd take Anderson.

Kazmir has had constant criticism about his mechanics. He has the talent, but he needs to put everything together to be a great pitcher. There's a reason why the Mets gave him up only for V. Zambrano.

Garrett Anderson for sure. Kazmir has tons of upside, but you have to take the All-Star caliber hitter over the unproven Kazmir. Wade Miller doesn't even belong in this comparison. He is too major of a health risk. He seems to be injured more than not.

I'd take Anderson for sure for one year...but for three years I might be tempted to take a shot on Kazmir

For this year I would take Anderson....but with him already being 33 with back and arthritis problems...taking a 3 year gamble on him is risky... :-o .....Kazmir has all the potential in the world....but potential doesn't win championships....most likely I would keep GA and then try and move him..... :-)
