Beckett, or Halladay?

Postby AtlDynasty25 » Thu Feb 24, 2005 6:05 pm

Who would you rather have on your team, Josh Beckett, or Roy Halladay?

And then, Beckett, or Mulder?

Halladay

Beckett has to prove to me first that he can have the durability to stay off the DL. Hasn't done it yet. Potential means nothing if you're always hurt (or blistered).

Pretty close... I like Halladay to bounce back big and Beckett to stay healthy. Not sure about Mulder though. Duncan may be able to straighten him out but he was awful in the second half. Talk is that his hip was bothering him all season. Maybe Billy knows something we don't.

Beckett has more upside. But comes with the risk of nagging finger problems and injuries

Halladay doesn't come without his fair share of question marks as well though.

I'd probably go with beckett because of the higher k rate , and win potential.

I'd go with Halladay first, then Mulder and finally Beckett. Halladay is the most proven out of the three and can win 20 games. Mulder is switching to the NL to a great team St.Louis where his he will get more wins, era and whip will drop. Beckett is still an injury risk and has yet to play a good full season. Everyone is high on his because of his K's

Mulder

*Mulder will get more wins playing for a better team than Halladay...other numbers will be similar even though Halladay is a better pitcher with better stuff. Beckett has a lot of potential but he reminds me of Kerry Wood...will he ever live up to expectations???

And that's an easy decision, IMO.
