ARam Vs. Wright

Personally, I like ARam just a bit more right now. But, with Wright's SB potential, I wouldn't be surprised to see Wright ending up being more valuable in keeper leagues. Honestly, I doubt you could go wrong with either.

90 some RBI, 25-30, 90 R, .285 with 15 steals for Wright

Easy for Aram at this point.


Are you on crack? A-Ram is hitting .226. Do you really think he is gonna add 84 points to his batting avg?

Most crack users will tell you that excessive usage will not lead you to overproject a ballplayer's statistics.
By the way, that post was written nearly two months ago when Aramis seemed poised to repeat last season's numbers. Since then we've seen ARam fizzle and Wright has placed himself arguably at Blalock's level as a premier young 3B. This kid sure is fun to watch - 2-4 with a 2B tonight. ;-D

I think Aramis' back is holding him up. He has an awfully violent swing too, which can't be good for a guy with back problems.
He's off right now, but he'll be back. If he gets/stays healthy, 35 HR is still not out of the question.

Wright: .290 90 25 90 15 (Sophomore slump always possible, but still not a bad player to have)

So that's about 45 points in AVG, 30 runs, 20 HRs, 40 RBIs versus 14 SB


Those are the ceiling numbers for a guy like Vlad, not Aramis. Aramis Ramirez is simply not that good.


I simply disagree with you about his true ceiling. I guess next year or the year after that when Aramis is FINALLY fully healthy for a whole year we'll see that from him. But until then I will count my blessings that I didn't get him on any of my teams this year despite my best efforts.
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I totally agree. I'm thru with projections myself. I'll rank players, but it's just too hard to project players now a days. And to be quite honest I don't see A-Ram getting anywhere close to 120 rbi's or a .335 avg, Ionic.

Have you been watching him play at all this year? You're talking about a career .272 hitter who's hitting .232 so far this year. Oh, sorry, .226 after his 0-4 tonight. Last time I checked Wright was blowing that out of the water.

For this year and the next ten years the pick is David Wright.

This years numbers:

ARAMIS: .232 22 7 18 0

Wright: .304 26 8 26 3

Wright will soon be one of the true stars of fantasy, whereas Aramis wll continue to be inconsistent.

I see Wright with better numbers across the board, the only possible exception is HRs and only by maybe 5. But down the road it won't even be close, David Wright will soon be a shoe in starter for the ALL-Star game. Word is Cooperstown is going to add a David Wright wing, construction to begin in 2012. Aramis is a solid 3B who had a career year last year. David Wright will soon be putting up numbers better than AROD. You may as well call Wright D-RODplus.
