If you owned a team, who would you rather have?

Dontrelle Willis. He gets all these good starts mainly because nobody has figured out his delivery yet....

Prior, hands down. Willis has only been up a little while and I know Dontrelle mania is sweeping the nation, but Prior has just proven himself more. I am still waiting for Willis to get hit hard and lose maybe 2-3 in a row and see how he recovers. Don't get me wrong, he's a great pitcher, but we have yet to see how he will recover from a couple of bad outings.

Call me crazy, but I think Willis could be the savior of baseball. He just has that "stuff" that draws people to him. He's got charisma, a funky delivery style, and he's very respectful of the history of the game.

Nomar4prez, you will not be the only one tagged "insane." I know Prior was a tremendous prospect and Dontrelle kinda came out of nowhere but the point is, he gets outs and he brings life back to baseball. I'm sure all of you thought the Marlins could never go to the playoffs this year, but thanks to this phenom, there is a small chance. It's not just stats that are brought into consideration. When you look at Brad Ausmus, a horrible hitter, but a good defensive catcher, one would think why do the Astros play him so much. What people don't know is that Brad is the main reason Houston has a wonderful plethora of pitchers. He guides them and takes care of them, kinda like Gandolf, but just a bit younger. ;-)

Don't get me wrong, Prior is a fantasy stud, but if my team is struggling, Dontrelle is more likely to bring the club back up.

Also. McKeon is actually keeping Willis' pitch counts under control. Not like Dusty Baker with Prior, who is more of a danger to blow his arm out before year's end with every extended outing.

I'd take Prior, looks like he's playing catch at 95 mph.
