He is such an arrogant @#*$ - it absolutely kills him to be out of the spotlight.

That notwithstanding, any more opinions on who is worth more in 2007?


if you are talking about pedro than thats good.
its good to be confident, and to be honest clemens hasnt exactally shined facing 19 year olds.

I think you have to take Carp over Pedro, assuming both are fully healthy in August and can help you out down the stretch. If you can roster two DL spots, I'd take a chance on both and hope one pans out for h2h playoffs.

Obiviously my sig shows my alliances, but Pedro is an confident SOB, and that's what makes him so great, not just in skill, but in mound presence and entertainment value, if you ever have a chance to see Pedro pitch, take it, it's not going to be quite what it used to, but he's still got whatever it is that builds excitement in a game.

Are you talking about Pedro and Clemens, because the same can be said for both of them (moreso for Roger "I Make Announcements at Yankee Stadium" Clemens). :-b

But I think its gonna be Pedro, just because I think he'll be back sooner and able to get back in the swing of things. Carp probably won't be back until August, and the most the Cards can hope for is to be hovering around .500 and go on a tear when he comes back.


LOL. I was talking about Pedro, but Clemens may be moreso.

Well, the chance of acquiring Pedro went away, so I'm holding Carp on the DL and hoping for a little production by year's end. Thanks for thoughts.

Pedro actually said his fastball will be in the mid-90's .... not upper. However, even 94 would be great as he was still dominating NL hitters throwing an 88 mph fastball the past 1.5 years. ;-D

Yeah Pedro said he'll be able to throw consistently in the mid-90s. I know what you're thinking and I'm pretty skeptical too. But if it's even partially true and Pedro can throw a mid-90 fastball when he needs it that will be pretty sweet.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Another reason Pedro will have more value is because of the team he plays on. If he's even a shell of his former self, his team will give him a shot for a win most nights.
I wouldn't rely on either of them this year though. I've always shyd away from pitchers that have been through arm injuries recently.
