3 Injured Pitcher: Prior, Hudson, Or Halladay?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Hudson is going to win the NL Cy. Not likely... he will.

His ERA over the past four seasons is right around 3.00 in the AL West with real hitting... now he's in the NL East! Bwhahaha

Prior should dominate... and might be better in fantasy because of K's... but in real life, Hudson is the man.

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

BTW Strasil42, Oswalt is my second favorite pitcher behind Hudson... been following him since he was still in the 'pen. Hope they go 1-2 in Cy votes. ;-D

If I'm drafting today:

Hudson
Prior
Halladay

But if Prior sails through spring training with a clean bill of health:

Prior

Hudson
Halladay

• Aaron Hill: Headed for DL Jul 12 (RotoWire)

I just love Halladay as a dominating pitcher, I think he's better than Hudson.

BUT- I dont think he's fully recovered.

so,

Prior
Hudson
Halladay


Same here. ;-D

Oh, and to whoever said that the Braves are better than the Cubs to justify elevating Hudson's value over Prior, I disagree. And so does Las Vegas.

2005 World Series winner odds:
Cubs: 8.5/1
Braves 13/1

(If you're curious on the odds for favorites, the Yankees are 3.5/1 right now and the Sox are 4.5/1)

Just to throw it out there, if your league counts complete games and/or shutouts, Halladay could very well be better than either of the other two next year. Anyone that had Halladay singlehandedly (literally--he outscored several teams in my league) win those categories for them two years ago can attest to that.

What I want to know is why is everyone slapping Prior with this "injury risk" tag after ONE season of injury? Is it because so many people got burned on him last year as a first rounder, now they have to go out and convince everyone else to avoid him too? Prior to last season, I don't think he ever had injury problems in his career, and he did start to come around big at the end of last season (right around fantasy baseball playoff time, which people may have forgotten).

Is there any reason to say that Prior is NOT going to be 100% this year aside from just speculation?

And didn't Vegas have the Cubs as the favorite to win last year?

right on Rich. Wasnt one of the things that had scouts drooling over Prior was his smooth mechanics which suggested he will be able to pitch for many yrs?

I agree that a lot of people who are negative on Prior this yr were either burned by him, or dont remember how utterly dominate he is.

You're using Vegas odds to gauge the better team? I'm no economist or gambler but odds are usually adjusted for the amount of money placed on a team at any given moment. There was heavy betting on the Cubs last season and given the Red Sox ending their curse and the obnoxious optimism of Cubs fans about 'next year' I'm guessing there is quite a bit of money being laid down on them now as well. I may be wrong of course because I'm not really up on odds making.
