Good question. ;-D Having followed Pedro a lot mose closely the past year (being from Boston, plus I didn't own Prior last year) I can say I am nervous about taking him high this year because of uncertrainty with his pitching shoulder, which a lot of people feel is moving ever-closer to needing surgery.

I understand Prior started last season off hurt, but assuming he's 100% now (is he?) and factoring how much younger he is, I'd take him far earlier than Pedro in the 05 draft.


Edit -- you added Kerry Wood to the equation while I was typing above. Wood's another guy who I hadn't been following, so I'll disqualify myself from this debate.

I'd have to go with Prior if he's healthy. The boy has the mechanics to be a monster and could very well equal or out do Pedro in the Ks department. Since Pedro is in NY I think the wins will be lacking. I think Wood is the bottom feeder out of the 3.

Imo it goes prior, pedro, and then wood

I think Pedro and Prior are close but wood has been way overworked and his arm has not responded well to that.

Prior has nasty stuff and dominates when healthy.
I hope to see him stay healthy this year.

Priors lineup is much better than pedros. Leiter and Glavine pitched well last year and their records did not do them justice

Prior
Pedro
Zambrano
Wood

Wood is defintely 4th on the list. The other 3 are debatable but if all 3 are healthy, I'll take Prior.

I'm digging around here for my dice, tarot cards and crystal ball. Seem to have misplaced them ...

assuming perfect health,

Prior
Zambrano
Pedro (nice park, but lame team and shrinking innings count)
Wood
