Scherzer or Price?

While a lot of you are prepping for your upcoming draft I would think that Tampa Bay Rays David Price and Arizona Diamondback Max Scherzer have to be somewhere on the top of your pitching list for 2009. It is a hard call between the two youngsters for some as they are both loaded with talent but I personally have to say after watching both of them pitch minimally last year that that Price is standing alone in this debate.

I know that Scherzer is being hyped as the better control pitcher with the "make up" of a future ace but Price just screams unhittable. He came up late last year and seemed to over match everyone he faced right through the post season. Scherzer had glimpses here and there but along with his four losses it seemed that he was a bit shaken in his early and late season call ups. I know that it is tough to go by a small first impression but I am going with my gut here and you can ask my wife....that is one big resource.
