David Price or Josh Johnson??

Risk of injury with Johnson starting to bother me (not sure why) Who do you take first?

Post this a few days before your draft. Right now, I would go with Price b/c of concerns over JJ's arm/shoulder. I don't think Price will have as good of year as he did last year. Lots of potential though. Give him a few more years and he will be better than JJ is right now.

I will take Price. I know he was a bit lucky last year but he is also young. So I could see him posting a fairly similar year to last just with him taking another step forward.

I think right now Johnson is the better pitcher but as you said he has too many injury concerns. Thing about price though is he was a bit lucky last year and got alot of his value from Wins which can't be counted on from year to year. Tough choice but I would go with Price. Just don't see Johnson staying healthy all season.

Josh Johnson all the way. I think the injury concern is a bit overblown and David Price has been a little too inconsistent lately.
