I went with Holliday. I do think that ballparks make a difference , but I believe who's pitching against you makes a bigger difference.
Here's the NL west's projected starting pitchers. ( Excluding the Rockies )
Arizona ; Webb, Haren, Davis , Scherzer, and Garland
San Fran ;; Lincecum, Cain, Johnson, Sanchez, and Zito
LA ; Billingsley, Kuroda, Kershaw, Schmidt , Stults
San Diego ; Peavy , Young, Baek, Geer, LeBlanc
Here's the AL West's
Seattle ; Felix, Bedard, Morrow ,Washburn, Silva,
Texas ; Millwood, Padilla, McCarthy, Harrison, Feldman
LA Angels ; Lackey, Santana, Weaver, Saunders, Mosely
The NL West has 4 of the top 8 pitchers in baseball ( According to recent cafe threads )
Lincecum, Peavy, Webb, and Haren .
Then there's Billingsley, Cain, and Young for some other real good pitchers.
Then there's Kuroda who's pretty good.
Then Kershaew, Scherzer, and Sanchez for power pitchers with upside who should get better this year.
These 11 pitchers will be owned in 12 team fantasy leagues.
Now let's go to the AL West.
We have 0 pitchers in the top 8
Then we have Lackey, Santana, Felix and Bedard who are real good.
Then there's Morrow who has real nice upside.
Then Weaver and Saunders
That's 7 pitchers who will be owned in 12 team leagues.
So in the AL West there's 4 less pitchers who are worthy of a 12 team roster spot . And there's no elite pitchers.
If you were a batter , which group of pitchers would you rather face ?
Then for the argument of Holliday away from Coors. More batters hit better at home than on the road. So looking at Holliday's numbers away from Coors , doesn't factor in that he will be at home when he's at The A's ballpark. You can't just look at the numbers away from Coors , being how he will hit at home at McAfee.
No doubt he'll miss Coors, but I think he'll see weaker pitching so that should offset some of the negative about him not being home at Coors.
I've made my argument.
