Halladay or Magglio?

Postby gypsyspot » Sat Jul 24, 2004 4:20 pm

In a keeper league who has more value? Consider a team that is indifferent between hitting and pitching, which one do you think has a better chance of returning to fantasy prominence next season.

Hitting is more reliable so I favor it for keeper decisions. If I had to make the decision right now I'd take Magglio. But considering Ordonez's age I would keep a close watch on the injury situation. If you get to make this decision in the off-season the size and length of his new contract will be a good indicator of how much faith teams have that his knee won't be an ongoing problem.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I scouted Halladay back when he came up into the league. Even before he nearly threw a no-no on closing day of the season against the yankees (when most people heard of him). The thing is... I always expected him to be good, but NEVER expected him to have a year like 03. I honestly expect him to be a good #1 starter for the rest of his career, but never crack 20 wins again.
Help please:

Harden- 2.15 ERA, 7.61 K/9
Peavy - 2.89 ERA, 10.10 K/9

Looks like this question is a no brainer now.

Actually, both could be done for the season :-P
