Soriano/Chavez or Kent/Pujols?

Postby Happy Homer » Sun May 11, 2003 12:41 pm

Which do you consider to be a better combination Soriano/Chavez which has mix of power and speed or Kent and Pujols who have tons of raw power?

Kent/Pujols, unless you're dying for steals.

estimate final numbers

Chavez 280 35 HRs, 110 RBS
vs
Pujols 320 40 HRs 120 RBis

Advantage Pujols by .40 AVG, 5 HRs, 10 RBis

Soriano 300 40, 110 RBi, 40 steals
vs
Kent 310 35, 120 RBIs
Advantage Soriano because of the extra steals

If you are a little weak on the steals side, I'd take the Soriano side. The slight edge in Avg. and RBI (HR's are a wash) is outweighed by the 40 steals, which can leapfrog you several places in Roto leagues, and carry you through weeks in H2H (it was already once for me). Plus, I think Soriano hits better than .300 this year, I'd say .320 is better. Then, it's just a matter of 20 RBI vs. 40 steals.....

I like the Soriano side a little better...

don't know why but I think Kent is going to come up a little short of expectations this year

I like Soriano/Chavez side. The steals make the deal. The way I look at it if you have someone can steal 40 while helping in all other categories too, then you don't need a Castillo or Dave Roberts one cat wonder in your lineup.

You've got to factor Pujols arm injury into it and LaRussa's blantant disregard for his teams future. I'd take Soriano/Chavez in a second.
