Sunday Discussion Thread: A Right-hander Under Pressure

Yesterday's discussion and poll question about picking a lefty to start Game Seven of the World Series for you generated a good discussion. We'll continue with that theme today, but flip things around to the other side and ask about picking a right-hander.

The scenario: it is Game Seven of the World Series. You are playing the Texas Rangers, in Texas. Your bullpen is burned out, and you really need your starter to give you five or six good innings. If you have to pull him sooner, you have no confidence that your long and middle relievers will do the job. You can't pull a stunt and have the rookie just pitch one inning or something like that. Your primary closer is available but you can't use him for more than two innings.

Which of the following prospects do you want to start this game for you, and why?

Liam Hendriks, Minnesota Twins
Drew Hutchison, Toronto Blue Jays
Nestor Molina, Chicago White Sox
Brad Peacock, Oakland Athletics
Garrett Richards, Los Angeles Angels
Joe Wieland, San Diego Padres

Remember, you're not trying to pick the best prospect. You're trying to find the guy who is most likely to help you win this game, today, under pressure.
