What is the Value of Willis?

Postby demoflauchy » Wed Jul 23, 2003 5:54 pm

I'm trying to gauge the perceived value of Willis of owners that want him or want to keep him. Would you trade him now? If you would, what can you expect to get for him?

He's pretty good, but not good enough for the top 10

Pedro, RJ, Schilling, Mulder, Halladay,Zito, Williams (not Mike!), Clemens, Moose, Wood

Those are the top 10 followed by guys like Prior, Willis, Russ Ortiz...

I said top 25.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

Some owners are willing to trade alot for Willis. I am in a 12 team keeper league and traded Willis monday night. I gave up Willis, Smoltz and Benitez for R.J., Millwood, Biddle and Williamson. The person I traded with was etermined he would be a top pitcher to keep.

He's about top 30 or so, nowhere near the top 10. No rookie pitcher ever deserves to be considered in the top 10 until he at least establishes himself as capable of pitching a full 200 inning season without breaking down or tailing off.

The top 10 pitchers IMO are:

Pedro
RJ
Schilling
Mulder
Zito
Hudson
Halladay
Mussina
Wood
Millwood
