So what if Perez gets traded. I own him and I hope he does. Can you imagine if the Yankees traded for Perez??? Or how about LA?

If it's just 1 year keeper, I'd take Peavy. If your keeper league is 3 years, then I'd take Perez

Oliver Perez has SICK stuff...Plus he is lefthanded So he has more value in my opinion....PLUS he strikes a hell of a lot more batters out..It's Perez in my book

Honestly I don't think the Pirates farm system is that good ... def not a top farm system in my mind. They do have some good prospects, but most all of them are pitchers. So I don't see that helping Perez out in the future.

They don't have any impact hitters in their system, future looks bad for their offense.

i can see where youre coming from . their pitching in the minors is definitely better but but they have a couple of exciting prospects with power (something the current team clearly lacks) like Beasley. and they'll most prolly get a position player in return for Benson. compared to the past i think their offense should improve to respectable levels in the next few years... Wilson and Bay are everyday players. Mackowiak too. the other Wilson, the one whos a top 3 def SS, also has turned the corner offensively.

i think the Pirates are right behind Indians and D-rays as teams on the rise. ;-D

Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

Peavy is a tremendous competitor with two very good pitches. He's going to be a very solid #2 starter.

Oliver Perez has Cy Young type stuff.

It's basically like comparing a BMW Roadster to a Ferrari. They're both real nice, but there's not much question which one I'd prefer. Perez.

Well at least for the next couple years ....

I would take the guy making his starts on a regular basis at SBC, Chavez, and Petco vs. the guy starting regularly at Minute Maid, Miller, Busch, Wrigley, Great American and PNC. Pittsburgh won't be running away with the central anytime soon, so Wins and a beneficial ERA are sure to be hard to come by from Oliver. Both have a similar ceiling, but Oliver's is probably a tad higher.

so for at least the next couple seasons ....

I'd take Peavy. ..
