Not when the person you are comparing to has more talent and is better at this point in their careers.
I'm willing to take a bet most Reds posters would take Rosenthal over Broxton right now. Especially now that Broxton's average fast ball is at 93.7 MPH while Rosenthal's is 96.7 and has topped out at 101.4 this year. Broxton hasn't even had a SO/9 over 7.1 since 2010 where as Rosenthal SO/9 is at 12.3 this year. How does being a veteran give him the advantage over Rosenthal here? Does it add 3 more MPH to his fastball or does it give him automatically more talent? I never understood the "he's a veteran" argument in these discussions because that means little when we discuss talent or ability esp. if one player is a clearly a better option now over the other.
