Whose Worth More: Howard or Liriano?

Postby F3V3R22 » Fri Aug 04, 2006 10:45 am

I'm kind of thinking Howard's worth a little more, just because he plays everyday and puts up great numbers nearly everyday, but then when Liriano pitches (Monday?) I think he's worth more. What side would you take?

Real life - Liriano, dominant lefties don't just fall out of trees, power hitting first basemen are a little easier to find.

Fantasy - closer to a wash, but still a slight edge to Liriano

I always prefer young hitters to pitchers. So, I'd say Howard.

Pitchers are so volatile. They'll be going along and then suddenly they get injured, lose their stuff, can't throw strikes, etc.

Not that this doesn't happen with hitters, but I think in my experience, hitter performance is easier to predict.
I never smile if I can help it.... Showing one's teeth is a submission signal in primates. When someone smiles at me, all I see is a chimpanzee begging for its life.

I'd say Liriano in Fantasy and real life as well.

Howard's 26, which means he's not old but beyond the "Young" category.

I'd take Liriano between the two.

Fantasy wise I might just take Howard in H2H, at least this season. Lirano is a stud, but in H2H you can stream SP to where you don't even need a stud SP. Plus, I find that I can always get more in return in a trade for a big bat like Howard than a SP like Lirano. A big bat is an easier sale in the leagues I play in.

I'll take Liriano. ;-D I can replace a bat like Howard a bit easier than I can replace a pitcher like Loriano.
