Doug Davis, look at his stats from last year, and it wasnt a fluke, miller park is a homer park and he gave up..i think it was something like 17 hr all year with a 3.6something era, 150 K's and solid #2 starter to sheets, with the brewers offense improved this year (miller at C over moeller, carlos lee instead of grieve, and brady clark over pods at leadoff) along with the defense being improved (clark in CF, pods was TERRIBLE, miller and moeller still catching, jj hardy and spivey up the middle) there is no reason his stats will get any worse benson has been overrated and overhyped his whole career

I think it comes down to which team does better in '05.

They are very similar in every category except Doug has the better ERA.

I don't have much faith in either one but put a gun to my head and I would take Benson.

In your situation, I would start taking the elite MR pitchers instead of either. Hawkins is a good choice, is Tom Gordon Available? Otsuka? These are the kind of guys that will help you the most right now - not a 6th SP.

I agree with this. Actually, his ERA was 3.39 and he K'd 166 while allowing just 14 HR. In fact, if you take out the first two games of the season, he looks even better. 3.10 ERA with only 10 HR allowed (he allowed 4 in the first 2 games against Stl and Hou). I'd pencil him in for something like this:

13-10, 3.54 ERA, 165 K, 1.38 WHIP

His only problem is occasional control difficulties (Sheets had 32 BB, Davis had 79), which could make his WHIP a little higher than one would like. At any rate, I would take him over perennial underacheiver Benson.

My words exactly. Benson, even though he has a hot wife, until he proves that he is worth the hype, is not making my roster. And not too many pitching stats are hinged on how good the team behind him is. With the increase in Mil bats, he should rival Benson in wins.

Benson = Underacheiver on offensively good team
Davis = Overachiever on offensively mediore team
