Joba vs. Price

On Saturday morning I heard Warner Wolf discussing this interesting topic on his weekly radio show: Who would you rather have Joba Chamberlain or David Price? Leave your opinions below on who you would pick.

As a Yankee fan I love Joba Chamberlain, even with this recent legal issues, but this is a no-brainer. You have to take David Price for one reason: he is a lefty. Lefties are so rare, especially ones who have stuff as nasty as Price and who are as poised as Price. Now, Price has not been as lights out as Joba was in their first seasons but look at Price's rise in the minors. He lost one game all year and went through 4 levels of the minor leagues as quickly and as dominatly as anyone in history. And his performance in Game 7 of the ALCS will always be remembered in baseball history. It also helps Price that the Rays are not thinking of him as a reliever and he knows he will be a starter come 2009.

What are your thoughts? Leave them in the comments section.

Price is clear choice. He also knows to stay away from the dui's.

Fuck that, go with Joba. The man tipped $100 at a strip club with a $3 cover and was pounding vodka sodas all night before being pulled over while drinking a beer.

A baseball career will end, but a drinking career lasts a lifetime.

I gotta take Price, a big lefty who throws 98 and has a devastating slider. Also, good point ab him completely crushing the minors.

Rob - this may come as a disappointment to you but, Joba was at a strip club where women dance, as opposed to your favorite venue, Chip and Dales. That being said, if he's going to have a prolific drinking career he needs to put a little less soda in his vodka and a little more vodka in his vodka.
