    Eric Milton vs. Dave Williams - which would you rather have?

    Milton was terrible last year, one of the worst ever .. but right now when he is off the DL I think he would be better than what Williams is right now, don't you think?

    Other than being long-balled to death, Milton is way better than Williams. Williams just gets crushed no matter how you look at it. Homeruns or not.

    Williams, only because he's cheap and easy to dump.

    Milton had a solid spring and first few starts. And I think it was due to his knee really being healthy.

    That game vs the Cubs where, I think, he tripled, and then got caught up with the 3Bman on the errant pickoff throw from Zambrano, did something to that knee. He wasn't the same afterwards, and then ended up on the DL.

    But I'd take him over Williams in a heart beat. If Williams can't consistently work that slow sweeping curve - he's fresh meat.

    Milton showed us in Spring Training and through the first two starts of the year what he can do when he's healthy. He can get it up there around 94 MPH and change speeds well and also keep the ball down. He's going to give up some long balls, but if there's nobody on you can live with them.

    Dave Williams, on the other hand, is just plain awful, even on a good day.

    Even if Milton wasn't completely healthy, I'd take him over Williams in the rotation any day of the week.

    This shouldn't even be debatable.

    Definitely Milton. But what about some of the Louisville starters?? And what about Wilson?
    Here's to another record-breaking season from Adam Dunn ...another 40 homeruns (all coming with nothing on the line) and 200 Ks! We Want King Jay!!

    On a sane team, this wouldn't be an issue. On this one, reluctantly, Milton.

    I cannot wait for Milton's $$$ to come off the books. Can we get a countdown on the homepage?
