Oswalt or Peavy?

Postby Drunken Rhino » Thu Oct 20, 2005 11:51 am

Did anyone else hear Oswalt's post game press conference yesterday?

Listening to that made me think, who's the bigger hick, Oswalt or Peavy?

I thought this was going to be a thread comparing them as pitchers not hicks :-b

That's like arguing which state has more rednecks, Mississippi (Oswalt's birthplace) or Alabama (Peavy's)?

Or whether the name Roy or Jake is used more on the Blue Collar Comedy Show?

This is perhaps, PERHAPS, the greatest thread ever. I'd go with Roy Oswalt, and here are my reasons.

Peavy will start to accept the Californian customs as his own, and start to drift away from hickdom. Roy Oswalt is in Houston, Texas. I see Oswalt's hick meter ticking upward for the next several years. Roy Oswalt wins.

so wait, you like oswalt as a "hick keeper", but what about current value? who is the most hickish at the moment? i think i've got to go with peavy. it's just soooo hard to argue with 'bama in this category.

Life is like riding an elevator. It has a lot of ups and downs and someone is always pushing your buttons.

In a redraft league, I would go with Peavy, as he is the more solid prodcuer across the board as a hick. He is, however, young and impressionable. So if you're in a keeper league, take the long-term hick security of Oswalt. ;-D
