Oliver Perez or Jake Peavy

Who's the better prospect, if you can still call them that? I like Perez but the K numbers can skew my judgment to be honest.

I'd take Perez, but Peavy isn't a bad consolation prize.

Guess who i'm voting for? :-)

I took a closer look and tried to be unbiased and my vote goes to O. Perez.

What is concerning about Peavy is his WHIP. Although he has a lower ERA over Perez, he walks more batters/inning and his whip is a lot higher. There is always that thought that those hits/walks will catch up to him.

Perez strikesout more and has a lower WHIP, while Peavy has a lower ERA and wins more. I always find wins to be somewhat random, and Peavy's ERA may go up a little if his WHIP is any indication.
