Schmidt vs. Sheets

schmidt, but definitley sheets if you're in a keeper.

j. schmidt is just more reliable, and while i think milwaukee will actually be better this year than it was last (especially that lineup. helloooooooooo carlos lee!) which will help his win totals, i think it's likely that his other numbers will be *slightly* worse.

i agree with you guys...except Spartans Rule ;-) ...it's schmidt...the Ws are the difference. i was able to trade for him in the begin of the season last year and this guy was awesome for me. the only thing that worries me about him is that alou leaves him out there for too long sometimes...120...130...pitches and alou won't take him out... :-[

I'd definatly go for Schmidt. Sheets had a great year last season, but all of his numbers were WAY better than his career averages. I realize that he's getting to the age where pitchers come around, but last year was the first time his ERA was under 4, first time he had more than 160 K's, and the first time his WHIP was under 1.25. I'm not bashing Sheets in any way, i think his numbers this season will be close to his numbers last season, and i think he'll pick up a couple more wins this years with an improving Brewers lineup. But Schmidt is a proven commodity. If it was a keeper situation, i would pretty much call it a toss up, with the edge probably going to Sheets (younger, and a real good bunch of youngin's expected to be playing ina year or two).

Will Schmidt blow Sheets away in the W category w/o big bad Barry in the lineup? I'm not sure that he'd really be all that much more effective missing that particular bat.

Sheets, OTOH, should probably end up w/ about 20 less K since Sosa got dealt though, too close to call in my opinion...

Give me Schmidt. Unless Sheets can win 15+ and keep his ERA under 3, I'll take Schmidt.

I think Sheets will probably top Schmidt in WHIP, ERA, and Ks. I also think that Sheets will get 13 or 14 wins and Schmidt will put up about the same.

I would definetely draft Schmidt before Sheets, BUT I would rather have Sheets on my team this year. With Barry out, the Giants will struggle on offense and Schmidt will probably lose a few low scoring games. That was the reason Sheets only won 12 last year, a lack of offensive support.

If you drafted Schmidt in the second round, and I drafted Sheets in the fourth, I got the better value.

Schmidt is a question mark with the injurie(s) over the last year. He also has only been outstanding for the last 2 years. Sheets is on the rise and should be a top 3 starter in the NL for the next 5 years

If you project that Sheets will produce better in WHIP, ERA, and Ks, and they'll both have about the same win total, then why would you "definitely" draft Schmidt first?
