Cafe Poll Question Discussion: Myers vs. Garland (explain)

Postby jjigglers » Fri May 06, 2005 2:43 pm

After seeing all of these polls, I thought it would be interesting to see what people actually thought about them. And no, I'm not considering dropping one of these guys for the other, this being a covert way to get advice. I just thought it would be interesting for others to see why the votes fell as they did.

Personally I chose Myers because he fits the bill of a lot of the other past breakouts, his K/9 is much better for his career, and I also think wins are overrated (as a volume stat), and harder to predict.

I'd pick Myers between the two also, but I don't trust either. Myers has burned me in the past.

I would have picked Myers too until I saw Garland dominate my Tigers last weekend. I think something's clicked in both guys though and I think they'll both have very good years. Wins are harder to predict than strikeouts, yes, but you can't argue with 5 wins in 5 starts. The Sox offense isn't even in high gear yet- they just win. Garland should end up with 20 wins and Myers 15 if lucky, the Phils just don't look good either in hitting or middle relief.
