Deolis Guerra vs. Will Inman

Postby shortsavage » Tue Aug 22, 2006 1:33 pm

Deolis Guerra and Will Inman are two of the best under the radar pitching prospects in the minors right now. Who would you want on your dynasty team?

Inman pretty easily right now, even if Guerra is just a pup, he hasn't shown much, at least not compared to what Inman did last year and what he is doing this year.

Inman > Guerra

<u>Guerra's last five starts</u>
8/17 - 5.0 IP, 0 HA, 0 ER, 6 BB, 6 K
8/11 - 5.0 IP, 2 HA, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K
8/06 - 5.2 IP, 5 HA, 1 ER, 2 BB, 11 K
7/29 - 5.2 IP, 3 HA, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K
7/24 - 6.0 IP, 5 HA, 1 ER, 0 BB, 3 K

That's a 0.95 WHIP and a 8.89K/9 ratio over his last four starts (27.1 innings).


This is really where I tend to disagree with you and rmande09. You don't just take the player with more of a track record and more experience nearly every time. Top 100 prospect lists are supposed to be based on potential and how close a player is to achieving that potential. I think you two need to reconsider how you balance the two.

Not that Guerra is an obvious choice over Inman, but the two have to at least be close.

Come on Savage..... thats also 4BB per 9 during those 27 IP.

You can have those 27 IP, i'll take Inmans ENTIRE season thus far

91 IP
9-1
60 hits
22 walks
109 Ks

1.38 ERA
.90 WHIP
just over 2BB per 9

Its an easy choice from where I'm looking.

Yeah, but prospect lists are meant to look at career potential, not who is having the better season.

If deciding which of these players has more career potential an easy choice from where you're looking, I think you should consider adjusting your vantage point.

I'm actually not sure between either of these guys, it's pretty close in my opinion. Inman is slightly more proven, but Guerra is two years younger. I don't like Guerra's walk rate, but kids his age are usually pitching to a high school strike zone - and that's quite a bit different than a professional zone. His control should eventually improve.

Inman's BB/9 is very impressive for a young pitcher. I don't know much about their stuff, but looking at peripherals, it looks like it's a wash. Guerra also has quite the size advantage.

In a keeper, I'd go with Inman just because I think he's closer and the farther away someone is, the more that could go wrong with a player. But Guerra is very close.

I guess let me rephrase, I have no problem with Guerra, he will more than likely be good as he has been ok and he is barely a teenager }:-) But the question was, who would you want on your dynasty team, and my answer 10 out of 10 times right now, would be Inman. Both good young talents but I would take Inman first every time right now.

Guerra is going to be a monster. He's only 17 and has a huge K rate. Inman is more proven but he doesn't have the potential that Guerra has.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Guerra's K/9 a tad over 7? That's not what I would call a huge K-rate.

Inman, on the other hand, averages 10.8 K/9. That's a huge K-rate.

Both guys have very, very similar ceilings.

Guerra has struck out 8.89 per nine in his last five starts.


Jason,

Am I mistaken for assuming that "career potential" = who would you rather own in a dynasty league?

The philosophies that I've heard from you aren't helping your credibility stock in my mind. It's still helpful to hear what you have to say because you have a lot of knowledge, but I'm discovering more and more that I disagree with how you choose to apply your knowlegde.
