Who's gonna do better? Pedro or Wood?

Postby Yikes » Thu Apr 22, 2004 1:36 am

Just tossing a questions out to you experts on who you think will end up with better numbers this year.

I am concerned about talk that Pedro's velocity is down this year.

I am also concerned about Wood throwing 130+ pitches the last outing and Dusty's gonna drive him to the ground this year.

Give me your thoughts, thanks.

Wood has never won more than 14 games in a season, and is still good for 90-100 BB's. He's also backed up by a shaky bullpen. No one can guarantee the future, but Pedro is still clearly the superior option here.

Pedro. Pedro will have more wins, lower era and lower whip. Wood should have more K's. And like you said what happens when Baker keeps Wood in for 180 pitches lol his arm seriously just might fall right off. At least the Red Sox know how to baby their star pitcher so he won't fall apart. He might hit 2 weeks on the DL every year but you will never see him get pushed to the point to where he has a season ending or 3 month long DL stint. Until proven otherwise Pedro is still the stud.

Wood is good, but Pedro is better. Pedro will have around 200 K's, lower ERA, lower WHIP, and more wins to boot. Only category Wood beats Pedro in is K's, but Pedro's no slouch there.

Weather has a pretty big impact on Pedro, and as it warms up so will Pedro.

Gotta agree with everyone else on this one. Even with his velocity down, Pedro can still fool any hitter.

I drafted Pedro over Wood, but it was very close. I think Kerry needs to win over 14 games before he is appointed better than Pedro.
