Better sleeper on a bad team, Greinke or Snell?

Postby BobbyRoberto » Fri Apr 13, 2007 6:35 pm

Greinke and Snell have both pitched well to start the year, but are on bad teams. Who's the better sleeper?

Who's the better sleeper or who will post the better numbers? There's a difference. Otherwise, you'd have to factor in where each player was ranked before the season -- and Greinke would have the early edge considering he wasn't even on most people's radar heading into this season -- while Snell was already considered a solid wire addition with upside.

If you are just picking one of the two I think Snell will put up better numbers this year, including a lot of strikeouts. Greinke might be on the waivers but Snell probably will not be.
