I like Westbrook.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

Like always, it depends on the rest of your staff. Do you want somebody that is going to get guaranteed numbers? Neither one of them strikes many out, but I think if you wanna go w/ the safer choice, take Lieber. Obviously Westbrook has much more upside, and has the chance of striking more out this year.

Lieber, They say the second season after surgery, is when a pitcher will return to his best, and if the end of last year is a sample, this is a no brainer.

Lieber. I really like him this year and think he'll produce well above where he's being drafted.

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

Another Lieber vote. I think his ERA will be between 3.50-3.75, perhaps 13-15 wins

I think Westbrook was extremely fortunate last year. Few Ks ... I just don't see him repeating 2004 Numbers.

Exactly. Westbrook was lucky on balls hit in to play last year. A pitcher with his very modest K/BB ratio isn't going to have an ERA in the low 3s consistently.

We've seen this before. Learn from history.

Jake Westbrook 2004 = Jarrod Washburn 2002.
