A few shortstop ponderings

Postby nsulham » Sat Mar 05, 2005 7:19 pm

Most rankings I've seen have Jeter clearly above Nomar. How great is the difference though?

For example, if I already had A-Rod, Beltran and Soriano, should I consider Nomar over Jeter because the power potential for Nomar is (?) greater than Jeter and I wouldn't necessarily need the 15-20 extra steals Jeter would provide?

Seems to me it's dependent on what would be needed: steals go to Jeter, power goes to Nomar. While you're looking at maybe 5-10 more homers for Nomar, it's about 15-20 more steals for Jeter.

Are either of these guys good choices in the 4th round of a 10 team league? Or would you wait until the 6-7 to get Rollins or Furcal?

BTW, Tejada and Young are both kept so they're not even in the equation.

I like Nomar much more playing an entire healthy year at Wrigley. If you need steals though, wait to get Rollins.
