Eaton or Affeldt?

Postby vanityfair » Mon Mar 29, 2004 9:42 pm

Both guys are on waivers in my league. Should I pick one of them up? If so, which one?

I'd have to drop either Burnett or Nen to pick up my new pitcher (I only have one DL slot). Which should I drop?

I'd drop Burnett for Affeldt because his stuff is so n-n-n-nasty!
However, Eaton should have a good year too and I don't think you can go wrong with either one.

I picked up Eaton off waivers. I think he'll have a better year than last so I see double diget in wins while picking up a slightly above average K's.

I'm thinking I'll pick up Eaton.

He and Affeldt seem like they both have good stuff, and play for teams with good offenses. But Eaton has at least been an SP for a while, while there's still no proof Affeldt will be able to handle consistent starting.

Any reasons not to make the move: Drop Burnett for Eaton?

Seeing I have both I am hoping they both have big seasons. But as far as analysis, I have more faith in Eaton.

Eaton - 2 years remove from surgery, may become that semi-ace people have been waiting for. 13-15 wins, 3.85 era, 150 k

Affeldt - has the better stuff, but still unproven. 10-12 wins, 3.25 era, 170 k. big potential, bigger risk.

either one is better than burnett who may be out through June

no question, Adam Eaton. he has the same make up and stuff as Jake Peavy, and Jake Peavy is getting drafted in every league.. although Affledt, might have a chance to close, his in a short leash as a starter, i read somewhere that if his blister acts up again his back in the bullpen.

Affeldt has a little more upside but Eaton is probably a little bit safer. Kind of depends on what you want - if you're just taking a flier with a deep bench spot, go Affeldt. If you think you'll be pressed to use the guy right away, go Eaton.
