Definitely the positive with Beckett...If he didn't have injury/blister concerns he would be a tip-top pitcher. I would take him over Oliver by a mile.
Perez really needs to solve his control/walking problems. The more people he lets on base, the more chance the Pirates defense has of screwing up and letting the runs score. We are really good at giving teams "extra outs." He can strike out a ton of guys, but the walks he gives up come in to score too often. Combine this with the Pirates completely inept offensive ability, and you don't get a whole lot of wins.
