Humberto Sanchez vs Eric Hurley

Postby cubbies1 » Fri Dec 08, 2006 5:08 pm

the league is a 20 team dynasty 6x6 extra categories are OPS and Holds

i have been offered a trade where i give up one of these players. i will most likely accept, i am just wondering which one will have a better career. sanchez has the injury concerns but is also closer to the MLB and could help as soon as next year, while hurley is atleast a year away.

I think you have to give the edge to Sanchez simply because he is now in the Yankees organization. He not only has a decent amount of potential, but he is now part of a winning team that guarantees good run support. Hurley is a decent pitcher, but I don't see him having near the success early on that Sanchez more than likely will have.

Humberto Sanchez is one of the most overrated prospects in baseball. I don't expect him to be anything more than a No. 4 starter over the course of his career.

It's going to be pretty funny when people have to fess up for overrating him when he's an injury-prone, mediocre starter in the AL East three years from now.

Sanchez should't get close to the top 50 on any credible prospect list.

Oh yeah, forgot to answer your questions. I think Hurley the guy you should keep. He could land inside of the top 50 on some prospect lists entering 2007 and he has an outside chance of being a top 25 prospect before he loses his prospect status.

I agree with the fact that Hurley has more potential, but I think if you're looking for someone that will contribute soon I would def. say Sanchez is the better pick since he is now a Yankee.

1. Wang
2. Pettitte
3. Mussina
4. Johnson
5. Pavano

Minors: Hughes.........Sanchez


When does Humberto crack the rotation though?

He could make less than three major league starts in 2007. By the time he's in the Yankees rotation -- if he can stay healthy enough to keep his spot in line -- Hurley could be ready too.

Remember, Sanchez was shut down in August with a right forearm injury. He also had significant injuries in 2004 and 2005 -- only averaged just over 100 innings per season since 2004. I'm not going to assume he'll stay healthy enough to throw even 125.0 innings until I see it.
