It's a tie. These pitchers, while not similar in what/how they throw, are in a very similar spot. Both former top prospects who had some trouble/rough patches last year, both from organizations with strong histories of developing pitchers, both recently won the #5 starter job for their teams, both offer similar upside (in the long term) as #1 pitchers.

Teheran struggled more last year but he's had the better spring. Miller was great in his limited trial last year but has been good not great during the spring.

I think this is one of those times you go with your gut. My gut says Miller; what does yours say?

I have the #1 WW pick so my initial intention was to go for teheran. Then I heard about Miller's status today. Maybe put in claim for both? Drop Billingsley for one and Griffin for the other? Or is griffin better than either? Hmmm may need more input as to which way to go.... Whichever I put in first ill be guaranteed to get.

I'd take the tandem of Teheran/MIller over Bills/Griffin.

So am I making the right move?

Use #1 Waiver Priority to drop Bllingsley and add Teheran

Then set a second waiver claim for Shelby Miller, dropping AJ Griffin, JUST IN CASE people are sleeping at the wheel on Miller

I think that's a good move. I would consider switching Miller and Teheran though, since Miller has had more success in the majors and he has less competition for his spot then Teheran will have. When Beachy comes back at All Star break he could be a real threat to take Teheran's job if he is struggling at all, so that does worry me some.

What bats are available?
Colvin/Puig could be replaced.
