Hughes or Morrow? WHIR

Postby Ernie.Whitt. » Fri Feb 11, 2011 4:48 pm

I need to select my last keeper, and it has come down to Hughes and Morrow. While Hughes could very well win more games, our league uses K/IP instead of K's... where Morrow is obviously superior.
Thoughts?

Even with the special scoring rule, I'd still take Hughes over Morrow. He's on a better team and I think he has the bigger upside.

I think Morrow has more upside than Hughes and should outperform him in every category in 2011 except for wins. Run support is in Hughes favor, but that doesn't always guarantee more wins.

Hughes was a top prospect, Morrow can't seem to stay healthy and couldn't even get a job with the Mariners, take Hughes and don't look back.

Agreed, I will take Morrow.

And Morrow wasn't?
Morrow was the 5th pick in draft.
Hughes was 23rd.
Every NY prospect gets overrated.
Jack Z made a mistake moving a high upside sp in Morrow for only League.
Morrow makes hitters miss. When he cuts his W/9, he's a very good sp.
