depends on your need. Billingsley will prob be up some time this yeat & is a tremendous prospect, but pitchers are always risky

alot of people are down on Milledge, i think he will be awesome. should turn out to be a Sizemore type IMO


if you need O take Milledge if you want an arm take Billingsley

Agreed, it really depends on what you need. However if you want the best prospect I would take Billingsley ... I wonder if newyork will see this. :-? ;-7

I also agree, but would take Milledge. In a 5X5 format, I think his speed will come into play heavier than an arm.

Yup, I saw it hybrid.
I'll tell you the truth. I don't know much about Billingsley, but just because the rule is that most met prospects (with the exception of wright and izzy) are scrubs, I would go for billingsley. But personally, I like milledge more because (if you haven't figured out, hybrid) I'm a mets fan! ;-D

Most will disagree but I would take Milledge simply because it's the safer pick. Unless your team is stacked and you can afford the gamble, I wouldn't take Billingsley because of injury concerns.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

All things being equal, I would take the hitter.

I disagree, Milledge is a toolsy prospect. And are kind of high risk, high reward type players. Until Lastings puts up big minor league numbers i can't say that Milledge is a safe pick. He is a safer pick than a young pitcher, but in most cases hitters are almost the safer pick.

Yeah, I can't see taking a minor league pitcher unless he has the stuff of a Felix Hernandez. Go with Milledge.
