I like the Overbay comparison a lot. I think he'll put up the same stats, with around 5 more HR, IF he plays fulltime. Because he probably won't with the Ageless Wonder, I'd go with Broussard.

There's also this really telling category called OBP, which Broussard's was .370. That BA will go up for sure, because Broussard hit .300 in the last half of the season. I wouldn't be suprised if Broussard approached Hafner's '04 numbers. 25 HR, 95 RBI, 75 runs, and a .285 BA are very likely.



I was hoping for the same kind of production from Broussard this year. I got him pretty late in the draft and have him sitting behind Casey.

Broussard's numbers after the All-Start Break last year
210 ABs
35 Runs
13 HRs
43 RBIs
.300 AFG
.595 SLG

I drafted him in the 21st round of a 12 team 5x5 draft. I have him stashed on my bench behind Tex and Hafner. I think he was worth the pick-up.

Broussard was a complete joke before the all-star break last year prompting the Indians to make a mid-season trade for Phelps.
B. Broussard Cle 208 22 4 39 .250
A. LaRoche Atl 152 20 3 15 .250

Post All Star:
A. LaRoche Atl 172 25 10 30 .302 .368 .576 .943
B. Broussard Cle 210 35 13 43 .300 .395 .595 .990

so you end uup with basically the same numbers pre and post all star.

now considering that Broussard is 28, and has a fairly tenous grip on 1B in Cleveland, while Laroche is 25 and considered the future at 1B in Atlanta, and I don't think it's any contest.

Better? Laroche. Better for fantasy? Probably even this year, though I would go with Laroche in a regular or a keeper.

Rochey can't be better than Broussard this year, he's platooning with Julio, the guy who's making a Million. They wouldn't have paid him a mil. to just be a guy on the bench...
