Quentin vs. Volquez. Who would you rather have and why?

Volquez.

I can always find hitters.... finding starting pitching is a constant struggle.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Probably Quentin. He's just flat out killing the ball and plays every day. That's in a vacuum. If I had a good situation at OF I'd happily grab Volquez.

I'd go with Volquez if he's striking so many guys, wins every start, and has a microscopic ERA, even if he's a BB rollercoaster.

Owning both guys on multiple teams is great. ;-D

Which one is more likely to have continued success?

I'm a Volquez owner and I've considered on more than one occasion offering him to the Quentin owner. Only to feel relieved that I didn't after Volquez threw up another gem. So, as of now it'd be Volquez for me, but his walk rate concerns me long term...

I think both can continue to be useful fantasy players. Now this type of production I don't see continuing. I own both so I love it, but the safer pick to continue is Quentin. Volquez's BB and HR rate have me worried everyrime I start him. Plus as a Dback fan I could just see Quentin becoming the stud all us fans thought he would be when he was crushing in the minors. But hey we have Eric Byrnes. :-P Wouldn't shock me to see a .270/.380/.520 line from Q this year.

You can put Ryan Ludwick in this conversation as well. He has better stats than Quentin.

No you simply cannot he has about 1/3 the talent that Quentin has and is playing well over his head.
