Very interesting topic.......

Tough call for me. For next year, I'd prefer Pedro/Schilling.
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.....

A scary Wood stat for you all:

2003 NL - BB
Ortiz-ATL 102
Ishii-LAD 101
Wood-CHC 100
Nomo-LAD 98

Wood was one walk shy of Kaz "walk machine" Ishii! I know he led the NL in Ks, but jeez.

He's definitely a distant fourth behind Pedro, Prior, and Schilling, in my opinion.

If Wood stops walking people he is one of the best pitchers in the game. no question. but for now I'd take them in this order.
1.Prior-He can go nowhere but up and after last season I'd regret not taking him.
2.Pedro- He isn't that old and he's adapting to not having a killer fastball like he used to.
3.Schilling- He wasn't himself last year and with the injury I am hesitant to believe he is going to be as dominant as he once was. Probably will which is why he's 3rd.
4.Wood- Good pitcher. Needs work (as i said above and others have)
Overall, for keeper leagues, prior/wood. For normal leagues Pedro/Schill.

I agree to a point. Definately in keeper league you want Prior and Wood. Isn't MLB just one big keeper league???? Rankings again:
1 Prior- Couldn't agree more you wil regert taking this guy.
2. Wood- Imagine if he stops walking people. As it is he keeps a low WHIP unlike Kaz the reason being is that he is practically unhittable.
3. Pedro- "He's adapting to not having a kiler fastball".. Umm this tells me the guy is getting old in a hurry, why gamble with his age. The guy is becoming a junk ball pitcher.
4. Schilling- I agree he willl not be as dominat as in the past. Old people get hurt. Get this guy a walker will ya!

Now someone brought up the runs scored issue. The Cubs offense will be improved this year. They signed Lee at 1st. They may sign Castillo to play 2nd. they will most likely stick with Gonzo at SS. A full year of Aramis will help at 3rd. Sosa will be a rock as usual. Patterson is back from injury in CF. And Alou will be back. This offense is improved over last years is it as good as the Sox', no, but it is close. The Cub need to get Castillo, maybe improve at SS and I would like to see them land VLAD, deal Alou perhaps.

Well Wood and Pedro are free agents next year, lets see who MLB teams think is better. I'm willing to bet Pedro gets the better contract.

Umm, Pedro pitched 94 in the seventh inning of game seven against the Yanks. I think this is a bit of an overstatement.

Wood is overrated. Until he stops walking people, he's no stud.

For next year, there is no question about who I'd take. Pedro and Schilling.

And that's a Yankee Fan, ladies and gentlemen.


Personally, I'd take Leiter and Trachsel! ;-D

lol Pedro doesnt throw as hard as often as he used to because he has learned how to get batters out without the 95 fastball so he doesnt get as tired. But when he needs it he can still bring out the 94-95 fastball.

For next year I'd take Pedro/Schilling. Prior is a little bit better than both, but Wood is a definite step down from both.

And if Pedro gets healthy? Ayyyyy, pobrecito....the Yankee bats will only be inefficient fans.

I think it has been established that Pedro's shoulder will never be healthy without major surgery, but he's been pitching with it for a while now and has remained successful. I think the chances of him returning to his pre-injury form are pretty slim.
