Bailey or Buchholz

Postby Philly_05 » Sun Aug 26, 2007 8:52 am

Who would you guys rather have i'm not sold on Bailey being he didn't pitch all that well when he was up was sent down is on a horrible team. Would you rather have Buchholz long term it seems like Bailey was over hyped. I have so many kids on this team it might not really matter because I could just end up cutting both thoughts these are my kids overload I know. 8-o

Jarrod Saltalamacchia
Billy Butler
Alex Gordon
Howie Kendrick
Cameron Maybin
Justin Upton
Evan Longoria
Yovani Gallardo
Homer Bailey

We get to keep 15 but I realistically can't keep that many young hitters and expect to contend next year after having no chance to do so this year and picking them up off waivers.

to answer your first question i like Bucholz slightly better. I think that Bailey under performed when he was up but he will be better next year. I don't like the ballpark he plays in. Only thing i don't like about Bucholz is all of the though O in the AL East. On to your keepers, i think a lot of those guys will have starting jobs next year. Gordon/Salty/Butler/Kendrick/Gallardo should all have full time spots next year. Longoria might have a shot at a starting spot in TB next year, maybe at SS maybe at 3B. I wouldn't be surprised also to see Bailey in the rotation next year no matter what. Upton and Maybin are both contributing this year, i was surprised Cam got called up i don't see him starting next year but i also didn't see him even making the 40 man roster this year. I would strongly consider a lot of these guys as they will be able to help out next year, not as much as some but should be a dominate force for years

Buchholz has a K% of 35 or something. I'll take that guy. :-°

Personally, I think Bailey has more upside than Buchholtz and will K a lot more than him in the future. But he has the team, park, & past failed Reds pitchers to overcome. Buchholtz pitches in a better park, better team, though harder divison/league. Bailey has some of the best pitches in baseball, voted the #1 curve in baseball while in the minors at one point with a 97+ mph fastball. When he's on, he's on and has been injured but a nagging groin injury for much of the year. So, Bailey is more risky but with higher reward while Buchholtz is less risky with slightly less reward. So, it depends on what you need. If I wanted to play it safe, I'd pick Buchholtz.
