Leiter or Millwood?

Postby Chiefscards » Mon Feb 28, 2005 8:12 pm

I'm towards the end of a roto keeper draft and need to pick up one more SP. Which one is going to be a better option?

Millwood, by a long shot.

Last year, Millwood was incredibly unlucky while Leiter was incredibly lucky. I'd look for a balancing out of the luck this season.

Millwood for the reason AA pointed out.

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

I disagree with what most people are saying here. I'd go with Leiter over Millwood in a heartbeat. Better ERA, WHIP, and probably wins too (marlins are going to be very good this year).

Also, Millwood gave up a HUGE amount of home runs last year, which is usually a very bad sign of things to come - plus, he had alot of run support in his starts so HE got lucky in that regard.

Also, to whomever said that a change of leagues is always good for a pitcher - you're wrong. Especially if that change is from NL to AL, where the hitters are much better.

Add me to these voices. I think Leiter is at the end of the road and will not do well this year. MILLWOOD :-)
