I'd go for Lilly because he plays for a team that will likely win more games and give him better run support. Dreifort is more of a power, strikeout pitcher, but is also a huge injury risk.

I'd go with Lilly also.

1) He's on a better team which will win more games
2) He'll get much better run support

The drawback is fewer strikeouts but Lilly's strikeout numbers aren't that bad (30 in 41.2 innings).
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

Lilly if for no other reason then he has 3 insane pitchers to learn from, and the A's pitching coaching staff.

Definitely Lilly. DD is injury prone.

I'm going against the grain and going with DD (after this week). DD is on a comeback tear, and plays in pitcher-friendly DOdger Stadium. You can't beat that.
