    I'll go with B's hitting and A's pitching...B will get my vote!

      why A's pitching?


      • #4
        I voted team A. I think they would have too much for team B. Thats my opinion anyway.

          ...because outside of Santana (and possibly Beckett), my next five pitching choices would be from team A.

            I'd give a slight edge to team B, though it is close.

              Which lineup

              Does defense count?

                Team B, I compared the positions and chose which Id rather have, and team B won 9-6. It was quite close a call though.

                Just a note to all the active members of BBF, I consider all of you the smartest baseball people I have ever communicated with and love everyday I am on here. Thank you all!

                  The pitching favors Team A in my book, and even though I like David Wright as a batter, I don't like him as a fielder -- 26 errors last year or something outrageous -- so that led me to team A, also.

                  So, if it's true that good pitching stops good hitting, A is better.

                    B has the better lineup and pitching.

                      which lineup

                      What do you like about B's pitching, Brooklyn?

                        There is a clear edge in closer, Mo over Wagner.

                        I think Santana is the best pitcher in baseball, so they have the better number 1. Ranking the starters 1-10, I might have them something like this:

                        Santana (B)
                        Webb (A)
                        Peavy (A)
                        Halladay (B)
                        Beckett (B) - extra points for post season dominance
                        Zambrano (B)
                        Bedard (A)
                        Haren (A)
                        Sabathia (B) - dropped because of his terrible start, but he is the raining Cy Young winner
                        Wang (A) - I'm not sold on him. His wins are inflated because he plays for the Yankees. I'd have him higher if it weren't for his poor post-season.

                        Based on this, you can probalby see why I went B over A.

                          For team B, Dunn should be the DH. Make someone else their RF.

                            If the vote is for this moment in time, it'd be hard to rank Johan Santana over Brandon Webb. As time goes on, though, you might be right, Brooklyn.

                            Zambrano is solid, but I'm not all that impressed with Halladay's ERA over his career. Sabathia? Like I said, maybe later!
