Peavy across the board. I don't expect RJ to make more than 25 starts. That's just my humble opinion... :*)

I'm just basing my RJ opinion on the same injury reasons that every RJ disbeliever quotes. THere are a lot of miles on Mr. Johnson. He has no cartilidge left in his plant knee. NY is a tough place to play, especially RJ being more of a private guy. The AL has the DH.....you know, the usual.

One note, I'm not super high on Peavy either...although his start this year has me believing.

I'm going with RJ on this one. He didn't have any cartilidge in his knee last year either.

Put it this way, at the start of the season I would have rather taken Peavy in the 3rd or 4th round, than Randy in the first or early second. Peavy can put up similar numbers and still has parts of his body where they should be. Plus Johnson is moving to the AL into a good hitting division, of course he is elite but it will still have an effect.

My heart's with Peavy. I hope he does well. But if were drafting today I'm still taking the Big Unit before him. Barring injury problems (and Peavy had his own injury problems last year) I think Randy will be better across the board.

I say Randy Johnson over Peavy in every pitching category.

And Peavy is just as likely as the Unit to spend time on the DL this season.
