See How Un-Biased I Can Be??
Friday, January 18, 2008
Jerry Crasnick at ESPN.com has been comparing players during his Hot Stove Heater chats this offseason - A-Rod vs Pujols, Peavy vs Beckett, etc - and this week he stacked up the work of Joba and that of Clay Bucholz to see which youngster reigned supreme. Who came out on top? What did I have to say about it? Are you bored? View on!

    I have to agree with you on the fact that it might be too early to compare the two because Joba didn't start in the big leagues while Buchholz did.

    Both had great minor league careers and both play in big markets and have handled the pressure well.

    Personally, I think Joba might better serve the Yankees out of the pen. I had thought he would kind of take the role Mariano first did when he set up for Wetteland.

    Buchholz might not even start the season in the big leagues. He will be competing for the 5th spot with Jon Lester.

    I've heard rumblings that Joba might start off the season in the pen and be worked in the rotation.

    Of course we won't know all of this until the end of spring training.

    I do have to add one thing though.

    Where are you catching Sunday's game? Wouldn't it be great for SD for the Chargers to win? We can dream can't we.

    For that matter, do you know any good SD-area Yankees bars?

    It is premature, but screw it...what else is there to talk about until pitchers and catchers report (*drool*). If I had to make a call, I'd say Joba has the slight advantage due to his size and pitches. Clay is a phenomenal talent, but he has a very thin frame that needs to be filled out a bit to handle the rigors of a long season. When you throw in Joba's velocity, his nasty slider, and a curveball that's underrated (not to mention his developing changeup), he seems like a safer bet. I really don't think there's any wrong answer at this point. They both have the world ahead of them.
