FaceOff: Andruw Jones & Vernon Wells

Postby bd3521 » Tue Jun 14, 2005 12:59 pm

I think it is safe to say that Andruw and/or Vernon may have career years (as far as HR totals at least).

Are Wells and Andruw Jones on pace for equal seasons? Not likely, even though their stats are almost identical in all aspects at the plate at this point in time. (Jones has a tendency to strike out a little more often though).

HR RBI BB SB BA OBP SLG
Jones, Andruw CF ATL 16 39 18 2 0.2533 0.3191 0.5197
Wells, Vernon CF TOR 13 33 20 2 0.2542 0.3068 0.4667


Post all-star BA (career)
Andruw -.11 , BP2005 VORP Projection: 39.2
Vernon +.10, BP2005 VORP Projection: 33.4

BP gives a slight edge to Vernon based on Park Factor.

Who is the guy to have down the stretch that takes the lead at the finish line?

I'd go with Wells, he seems out of his slump and usually he hits for a higher BA than Jones.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.

And Vernon can steal bases.

He was quoted that he was looking for a 30/30 year. I dont think a 30/15 is out of the question (if he starts running!).

I also say Vernon.

But Jones will be close don't get me wrong. It's just that Wells has the edge with SB and AVG. I think Jones' power numbers will be better though. As close as it is...I say Vernon ;-D

Oh Yeah, and I'm a Jays fan :-b

I just hope they make it a battle, since I own 'em both.

Edge to Preston, but I could see the old vet stringing together a nice season. If Wells struggles again Andruw could put him away.

V-Dub is not a .250 or so hitter like Jones. Look for him to heat up in that department, too.

My money is on Jones. I think they both end the year in the 265-275 range, Jones with more power.
