      Yeah, he almost had me with that 13CG/Seas until I looked down and saw PlayerB had nearly as many and innings, too.
      Johnson and now Goligoski gone.
      I hope that's all.

        I can't assume that either pitcher will be the only good pitcher on my team for those years. I can't even assume he'll be the best. I may have someone better already.

        I'll go with Player B. Alot can change over the course of 12 years.

          Guys with long stretches of productivity can anchor your staff later in their career which gives them value, but they aren't doing the heavy lifting when it comes down to bringing home the hardware after their primes.

          To take an El Halo analogy, would you rather drive a Honda Civic for 150K miles or a Ferrari for 30K?
