    Rivera, because he's Rivera and his career speaks for itself. Hoffman has a lot of fabulous pitching to do to catch Mo.

    Now, how about Lou Pinella or Larry Bowa?
    To my knowledge, the last time they faced each other ('98 WS), Hoffman didn't seem to get lots of work in, if a sweep is any indication.

    I'd have taken Torre vs Piniella myself. For Mariano, I would've taken Smoltz, since he seems at least more compatible, is considered one of the better ones out there.

      Give me Vlad over Beltran. He's done it longer and greater. And you can see the impact he's having on the Halos.

      Dont' get me wrong, Carlos can play on my team anytime, but Vlad is outstanding.

      Overbay or Texiera?

        It's a hard one.
        Texiera is younger.
        Overbay is performing better.

        I go with Overbay because he's already got more then half the RBI's Texiera had in his first full season, and Overbay is destroying Texiera this year.
        .369-.203 average, overbay advantage. That's enough.

        Omar Vizquel or Barry Larkin?

          both are probably equal defensively, but larkin is better with the bat so i give him a slight edge.

          jose vidro or luis castillo?

            Vidro might be slower but he's better offensively.

            Carlos Zambrano or Mark Buehrle?

              as of right now, zambrano, because buehrle doesn't seem to be the same since he made the all-star game a few years ago. and i definitely think zambrano's best years are ahead of him.

              johnny estrada or jason kendall?

                No brainer, Jason Kendall. He's just overall a better player.


                Mike Mussina or Freddy Garcia?

                  Mussina has obviously had the better career to this point. I think Freddy finally grew up this year though and will be a ace from sombody for years to come. So, Garcia.

                  Jeff Kent or Brett Boone

                    Possibly the closest argument we've had yet. Offensively, they are awefully close, and I'd give the defensive edge to Boone, so all in all, I'd say Bret Boone.

                    Kevin Brown or Roger Clemens?

                        Clemens: He's just been healthier than Brown these past few years... and while neither of them won't be pitching much longer (we think), I'll go for the surer thing through the regular season. Let's do the frontrunners for the AL batting title.

                        Melvin Mora or Michael Young ?

                          Either winning the batting title would be a surprise. Didnt Mora have a similar start last year and then fizzle? I Young is a better all round player.

                          Here's one for you Yankee fans - Bernie Williams or Kenny Lofton?

                            Mora got injured last year after taking a fastball to the face. That's how his stats fizzled.

                            I'll pass the buck on the Yankees question so's I don't hog everything.

                              A fastball in the face does have a discouraging affect on your approach at the plate. Still he never really has put together a full season of quality work. I always think of him as kind of a super utility guy who fades when he gets too much playing time.

                                If I were a Yankees fan, I'd take Williams over Lofton. He's just done so much and had so many great years for the Yankees that he's one of the immortals in that town now. The Yanks got Lofton at the tail end of his brilliant career, so they don't have the guy in the highlight reels of years past. But I'm curious to see if any Yankee fans would disagree with that.

                                How about:
                                Peter Angelos or Mike Illitch?
