I would have to say Sheets, even though the guy is a pussy he did start 31 games this year. You can actually win games b/c of Sheets. I don't think Suppan has much left in the tank. How many games did Suppan pitch 7 innings and give up 2 or less runs this year, there can't be man, under 5 for sure. Look at it this way if we had Sheets signed for 2 more years at like $22 million instead of Suppan we could get some sort of a trade from some team. There isn't a team in this world that would trade for Suppan with that contract right now.
If I have a choice between Soup and Sheets... I chose soccer.
eh, they both are roughly .500 pitchers, so flip a coin
Flip a coin between Jeff Suppan and Ben Sheets? Really? Somebody actually wrote that? Please. Ben Sheets.
Sheets. Simply a better pitcher. I'll take 13-6 over 13-13 anyday.
Sheets.....it's not even close. 160 innings of Sheets have WAY more value than 200+ innings from Suppan.
But with Sheets comes the chance of a 75 inning year...
Except for the fact that he's never had a 75 IP year, so the odds of him having a down year like that are really not that much worse than any other pitcher.His worst year in 8 years is 106 IP, 7 out of 8 years of 140+ innings.He threw just short of 200 innings this year and everyone if freaking out. What is that, like 2-3 missed starts?In no way is he a work-horse or innings eater, but Christ. Even with missing around 160 innings in '06 & '07, he averages over 180 IP a year the last 7 years. Pussy=YesComparable to Suppan=No f***ing way
Is option 3 "scoop eyes out with spoon?" If so, I choose that.
Well given the makeup of our current team, I would go with Sheets. 150 Ace-like innings is worth more than 200 innings at #4 quality...or should I say it is worth more to our current team to have the ace at less of an average IP for $3mil more? A healthy Sheeter is worth twice the price of a glorified bullpen tosser.
