They are both realizing their potential and they both had over 200 K's for sub par teams. Atleast for the next couple of years it seems like their teams are going to stay that way so their value remains in their K's (and less so in their wins). My question is do you guys see them being solid pitchers next year? Guys who strike out 200 a year don't usually lose that right? Where do you see these two next year?

Perez was good but not even close to as good as Sheets. His K's are nice though for sure.... but he's more volatile IMO.
LBJackal wrote:I say Sheets because I think his ERA will remain very low. K's would go to Ollie, but I don't think he can control his WHIP and ERA like Sheets can. With a K/BB like that you have to assume he'd be the most reliable year-to-year. Perez doesn't make me feel safe like Sheets does. It wouldn't surprise me to see Ollie have an ERA in the high 3's. If Sheets' ERA rose to the mid-3's I'd be surprised.
