Boils down to what you need to me. Personally, I avoided Ortiz last year due to the amount of HR's that he allowed in '02. Last year wasn't just a down year in my opinion. I don't have him on my draft lists.
As to Beck, Hoffman still has a 40% tear in his rotator cuff and could go down at any time. Then again, he could pitch the entire year. If Hoffman were to go down, it's likely that Beck would get the save opps. Plus Beck is only 14 saves shy of 300 in his career and he has expressed interest in reaching that number.
I'd go with Beck unless you are desperate for another starter. In that case, I'd really scour the free agent pool before grabbing Ramon Ortiz.
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
