Anibal Sanchez, Dave Bush, or Rich Hill?

Postby humblepatience » Mon Apr 02, 2007 7:39 am

Which 2 sleepers out of the 3 are the most valueable?

My reasoning is Anibal Sanchez has already done it on a major league level, the other two are unproven. Bush and Sanchez play for sucky teams, Hill plays for a contender this year.

1) Rich Hill: No doubt the riskiest pick of them. Flyball pitcher in Wrigley. But that hammer and that offense. Weaker Division.

2) Dave Bush: How do you call Dave Bush unproven? And the Brewers won't be AS sucky this year. Weaker division.

3) Anibal Sanchez: All no-hitters aside, I'm not feeling him for some reason or another. The Marlins will be worse this year. He has an injury history. NL East has some bombers.

Thanks for the tips...Dave Bush had well over a 4.00 ERA the past two years, though 2005 was apparently injury claden. That's why I say he's "unproven", though he did have a 3.69 ERA in 16 starts in 2004. Right now Rich Hill is ranked much higher than both of them on Yahoo, but that obviously doesn't say much. ESPN has Bush being one of the best pitchers in the ML this year. Sanchez, yeah, might not have as good of a year but with the year he had last year he is the safer choice, as you said, above Hill.

1. Rich Hill- high risk, but high reward. He was so good the 2nd half last year, its scary what he do this year.

2. David Bush- He will have a good year this year. I think and ERA under 3.70 and a whip 1.18, w/ about 160-170 K's. Most really good baseball predictors are very high on him for this year. Needs to learn how to pitch away from Milwaukkee though.

3. Anibal Sanchez- he was "Dirty Sanchez" last season, and this season will prob have some struggles mixed some success. I still do like him alot.

I agree with the consensus here. I don't see any reason why Sanchez would be considered any more "proven" than the other two....he's only thrown 114 career innings.
