Bonderman or Kazmir?

Postby bmd » Thu Dec 15, 2005 4:42 pm

Who do you think will have the better 2006 - Jeremy Bonderman or Scott Kazmir. Also, as far as long term potential, who do you think will turn out to be the better picther to have on your team?

I personally like Bonderman better for 06 and for the long term.

Kazmir

I'd have to go with Kazmir in the long haul. He had some great games. He pitched well at Fenway and Yankee stadium. As far as 2006, I think they are pretty even.

I'll say Kazmir, just to be different. Different means your special.

Anyway, Kazmir should gain some control here, and hopefully not walk 100 batters in 186 IP next year. He's young, his control will improve.

Bonderman's walk rate isn't too bad for a youngin aka 2 years older than me still, but seems to be giving up alot of his.

Both these guys should be solid picks for next year, but hold off till later in the draft. neither player will get a lot of wins, and their WHIPs will really hurt.

I am a little bit biased on this question, but I would take Kazmir for the long haul :-D , but Bonderman for the 06 year

Bonderman for this year; probably Kazmir for long-term, but I'd like to see how he performs this year first.

I think the control was the deciding factor for me. Plus pitching in AL Central has to be easier than pitching in AL East for 06 or future. Bonderman has the better home field also.

I like Bonderman for this year and for the future. Neither will be absolute complete STUDS next year but I think both will provide some good production. Bonderman doesn't get very much run support sometimes and got a little inconsistent near the end of the season but if he could shake that off he could put up 6th-7th round numbers, possibly be a good 3rd or maybe 2nd pitcher in a fantasy rotation.
