The age old question: Taveras vs. D. Roberts

Postby wavetide007 » Wed May 04, 2005 9:54 pm

So I drop D. Rob yesterday to pick up Taveras and D. Rob responds by hitting a homerun and stealing a base today.


I didn't start Taveras today because he's facing a lefty, so I didn't get hurt there.


However, are these guys basically the same kind of player?
Taveras has the unknown factor to him but in minor leagues he hit .320 with 55sb and 11cs, something to that effect.
D. Rob has always had injury problems.

They both suck against left handed pitching.


Taveras = D. Rob?

had the same decision.

Went with Roberts instead. they are the same player but Roberts will play and steal I know that for sure and if he stays healthy he steals 50+.

Bottom line they look alot alike they will both go O'fer alot but will steal a ton. Go with your gut and dont look back
