Pitching in the other league

Postby rotoquest » Fri Jun 22, 2007 2:20 pm

According to ESPN.com's Jayson Stark, the Braves are much more interested in Mark Buehrle than the Mets are. The Mets have indicated don't want to give up Lastings Milledge or Carlos Gomez for a player in his walk year, and it's safe to assume the Braves feel the same way when it comes to Jarrod Saltalamacchia. Yunel Escobar is a player we bet the White Sox would have a lot of interest in. The Braves value him highly, but it might be worth surrendering him to add Buehrle to the rotation.

When a pitcher like Buehrle gets traded to the other league, does he have an advantage over the hitters, or do the hitters have the advantage? My feeling is that the pitcher has the advantage, but a case can be made for the hitters. A few thoughts please.

Pitchers tend to have the advantage at first. How long that advantage last really varies though, IMO.

But than there's Bronson Arroyo who switched from the AL to the NL and had his best season. Too bad it wouldn't last...
