Who is LA's Best Pitching Prospect?

Postby Andy1234 » Mon Feb 16, 2004 11:05 pm

The righty, Edwin Jackson? or the Lefty, Greg Miller?

I don't know much about either one, I would appreciate answers longer than just one or the other.

What type of pitchers are each of these? Finesse or Power? Who do you see having the most Success in like 3 years? Because Jackson might have a shot this year, obviously he would be the best for this year.

Any Help would be appreciated.

From everything I read, Edwin Jackson is their best prospect. He could get a starting shot this year, but that's not guaranteed if Dreifort and Alvarez are healthy. That's a big if though.
It's time to roll the dice.

Thanks for the info, I like the scouting report for Jackson, but I would have to pay to see the report on Miller. You wouldn't happen to be a subscriber who wouldn't mind giving me the gist of Miller's report, would you? - LOL

I am a subscriber, and think it's a worthwhile cost of playing fantasy baseball to subscribe to their online service. But it will be in the prospect handbook when it comes out this month, so you'll be able to see it at Barnes & Noble for free.

Yeah, this kid is the real deal. That link pretty much confirms everything I've read and seen about E.Jackson. I didn't realize he beat RJ in September ;-) I drafted him in one league, and I'm curious if you think he is a good pickup late in drafts. Or is his chance at starting THIS year a little too uncertain. I just don't want to draft him if he isn;'t going to get many starts this year. He is real young. But dang he can throw heat. All game.

I like Jackson, too. However, Miller has all the potential to be just as good, if not better than Jackson. Picking which is the "better" prospect is about as good as flipping a coin. Either one can be made a case for.
