Jeff Kent is worth...

Postby The Jury » Mon Jun 02, 2003 4:28 pm

I'm trading Kent, should I take Kevin Brown, Kevin Millwood, Mark Prior, or Barry Zito? I need a starting pitcher and I have Soriano.

Who is the best to get and who should I be happy with getting?

I'd be surprised if you could get those but I would go zito>millwood> brown=prior. For brown and prior its a toss up between inexperience and injury risk

Not sure why you want to trade Kent, but out of those pitchers you should rank them this way:

Zito
Prior
Millwood
Brown

I have Zito,Brown and IF i wanted to do that i'd let you have Zito before Brown. I dont like Oaklands offense this year. And my boy Zito hasnt gotten any run support it seems this season which has cost him some wins.

I'd rank them in this order:

1. Zito
2. Millwood
3. Prior
4. Brown

Oakland has actually done better so far this season than they did last season at this point, and Miguel Tejada and Eric Chavez have not woken up yet, yet they're still winning, once their bats come to life, watch out.

The Phillies offense also hasn't performed anywhere near it's potential yet, yet Millwood has been rolling. He should win 20 for sure this year.

I ranked Prior over Brown, although it's close. Prior will get you more K's is why I would take him first. There is still concerns about Brown's durability, but Prior has also never pitched a full MLB season so it's unknown how he will stand up or if he will wear down in the second half. Dusty Baker has also been doing a notoriously poor job of managing his pitcher's workloads, so that has to be a concern for anyone looking to acquire Wood or Prior.

Personally, i think Zitos the easy choice. I would rank Millwood last for sure. Brown/Prior could flip flop for 2-3.
