Pedro may be small, and his skill may diminish but not this season. I give him about 3-5 years. Hes still only 33 and he hasnt shown signs of losing his arm yet. plus, the facts are proven in this thread. the toughest park pedro wlil have to throw in more than others in the NL is philly. Cameron, I think your exaggerating too much with size and pedro losing his stuff.

To me, that suggest that while Pedro can be ok, he's not worth the pick of the round he'll likely be drafted in. If he goes nuts and picks it up I'll be pleased for him...but I'm not willing to gamble perhaps a 3-5 round pick on the question marks.
Just like I'm really steering clear of Kerry Wood who, like Pedro, can be up and down SEVERAL TIMES in the same way.
Schilling had a better 2004.
Pedro had a better 2003, 2002, 2001 (if you normalize his stats), 2000, 1999, 1998... etc.
Schilling's in the AL East, in a hitter's park.
Pedro's in the NL East, in a pitcher's park.
I'm so tired of this argument.
