Chris Carpenter or Pedro Martinez

Postby felixthecat011 » Mon May 05, 2008 9:40 am

I have an open DL slot and would like to stash one of these two. Pedro returns sooner, but I like Carpenter a lot, especially given the way the Cards have been playing.

Anyone have a suggestion/preference as to who I should acquire and why?

Pedro for several reasons
1. as you said Pedro is sooner
2. Pedros current injury is not arm related and in fact might be blessing because now he is even farther removed from surgery
3. Pedro proved last year he could be effective to a degree when he came back last year --and as time goes on should be better
4. no pitcher is that effective as soon as they return from surgery --
5. This is not Carpenters first surgery I believe.
