I have Tex/Peavy in my league and would take Tex/Santana.

I'd love Pujols but Santana is by far the best in the majors. That said, I am hoping for a big year from Peavy.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

wow...24 votes for each. I knew this would be close, but I figured there would at least be somewhat of a favorite :-? Guess it makes sense though, i'm not ever sure which side i'd prefer.

Last season, the Santana/Teixiera combination was a better selection by less than a dollar.

The difference between Santana and Peavy is really that large? Really?

The difference in their ERAs was .01, as was the difference in the DIPS ERA, an indication that the two pitched very similarly on the field. Santana's WHIP was .07 better than Peavy's, the only considerable difference in the two, but Peavy drove down his WHIP last season by over .15. If you don't think that will continue to lower in a 24 year old you're mistaken. Peavy actually struck out more batters per inning than Santana did last season.

You can say Santana pitched more innings, therefore his ratios help more, but Peavy was hurt for three starts last season, with a few flukish injuries (shagging fly balls in BP, the flu).

I call Peavy and Santana a wash for the upcoming season.

Pujols is a considerable upgrade over Teix. The stolen bases and batting average are greatly in his favor and now with Rolen returning to the lineup, and a bounceback year from Edmonds, I see Pujols adding to his RBI and run total this season.

Pujols/Peavy for me. ;-D

Tex/Santana by 100 miles. Anyone who says otherwise is misinformed.

Better check your speedometer. Tex barely hits his weight on road. Better hope he retires in Texas, because he's Overbay if he leaves.

I'd go with Pujols/Peavy mainly because of Pujols. He's still far ahead of Tex IMO.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

So, you are basing your projections on the possibility that Texas doesn't resign the best player they've had in a significant amount of time when he is a FA in a few years? So what if he has weaker numbers on the road? Everyone is going to have weaker numbers on the road when you play for Texas, and his final numbers are still insane. And he'll be in his fourth season. It's not like he can't improve on the road. Pujols is still better than Tex, but Santana can be so dominant you have to take him over Peavy. Last year was a mediocre year for Santana and he was still the best pitcher in fantasy.
