You got the better part of that deal by a mile. Vazqeuz is a stud, carpenter isn't and prior is as good as scmidt for fantasy value.

The irony here, of course, is that a little more tha a month ago the Forum overreactors -- especially those in the Pitch Count Mafia -- thought Schmidt's arms was going to die, turn green and fall off because he routinely throws over 100 pitches a game (like most HOFers had for, oh, about a Century). I hope that if nothing else Schmidt's success will reduce the misuse/misreading of that particular stat du jour.

I'm lucky to have both. But I woulda made that trade easy. I think people who are picking Prior remember that he went 10-1 with an ERA so small last year 2nd half that they think he can or will do very close to that again this year. He may.. and I wouldn't be surprised if he does because his arm has had less work than most starters. One thing that is of interest to me is Schmidt looks like an early favorite for Cy Young award. And I've been trying to think but can't for the life of me find or remember if anyone who's been on the DL at any time in the year ever win that award. Anyone think of someone who has?

It's close but Schmidt has been consistantly dominant all season so I give him the nod.

I'd take Schmidt the rest of the way.

The trade was downright robbery though ;-D

I've got them both, and had Prior ranked ahead of Schmidty before the season started.

If I could only keep one for the rest of the season, I'd have to stick with Schmidt for the security, not to mention that he's been pitching at about the same level as Mark Prior is capable of.

The Jury's Call: Security + Comparable Stats = Schmidt ;-D

True. I also remember several cafe'ers who will remain nameless (for now) that thought that Schmidt was gonna blow, whether as a result of his off-season surgery or a projected decline in Giant offensive production.

I'd like to have either guy, but if there were a mid-season draft Schmidt would be the 1st pitcher I'd draft.
