hybrid wrote:Mike Pelfrey is the better prospect and has more upside. Pelfrey profiles as a top of the rotation guy, while Weaver seems more suited for a middle of the rotation type pitcher. Weaver's overall stuff isn't as good and he has to rely more on control, another thing not to like is that he an extreme fly ball pitcher which in the end could catch up with him at the MLB level.
Pelfrey on the other hand has two pitches that should be plus, in a mid 90's FB and excellent change up, could be even better if his curve gains more consistency. He has great mechanics with a smooth delivery and well be in a better league (NL) and a nice pitchers park.
I agree with all of that, except with the last sentence. What hybrid meant to say, was that "even though he won't be in the NL as he will be traded to the Devil Rays over the winter, he will be in a better park for pitchers."
