Sheets or Santana for the rest of the year?

Postby Jester » Sun Jul 25, 2004 5:53 pm

I'm saying Santana simply for wins, but the brewers have been doing pretty good thus far? Any thoughts?

Santana. I don't expect Sheets to put up the same numbers he did in the 1st half.

I own Santana and would trade him for Sheets in a minute. Sheets 0.90 WHIP doesn't lie. This guy has emerged and will be a fantasy ace for years to come

Care to elaborate? I don't see the difference being monumental as you say.

I own both, so I'm just sticking with both ;-D

It's simple really....Santana has the past stats to back up his performace recently. Sheets doesn't. I'm not saying Sheets won't continue pitching well, but why take the chance that he will return to his prior self when you can practically be assured of a stud in Santana?

It's all about their risk.

Unfortunately, I don't own either of them, but I'd consider Santana the best bet, because of his team's winning ways. B-) B-)

i dont think theres a significant chance that Sheets will return to his old self barring something bizzare like a serious injury or whatever.. but id also go with Santana. there was a pretty large thread 'bout this around the AS break and people tried to dissect their short careers and stuff. if youre trying to decide you can take a look at that if you wany to. and i think i posted this in that thread but Santana's ratios and K rate has actually improved over last year. Jackal pointed out that he was kinda unlucky with the HR's he giving up maybe or something else...

i'll try to search and see if i can dig up the thread. :-)
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

Lol, Santana first began starting in the second half of last season. His numbers were excellent, but he did not match them for the first quarter of this season. So, he has been good for about 3/4 of a season. Sheets on the other hand has been getting better since he began in 2001 ;-) . If you still think that Sheets is a risky, you have not been following him at all.

You're better than this slomo.
