Chipper has been great this year in games he's played. He's been just as good as Delgado when you compare stats, not counting cumulative due to injuries. Just look at them.
Chipper: .306/.417/.567/.984; 17 HR in 307 AB's
Delgado: .298/.392/.573/.965; 29 HR in 466 AB's
How does Delgado "destroy" Chipper?
How does MCab do "everything else" better? All Cabrera does is hit for a higher average, about 55 points. His isoOBP is worse, and only 30 points above Andruw's. He slugs less. I don't know about you, but I'll take the 20 extra homers over the 30 points in OBP. Andruw's got the better OPS.
Easley? .242/.317/.430/.747 is his line.
McCann's getting the bulk of starts. Have you seen him hit? He's a MUCH better hitter than Easley.
How is it foolish to say LaRoche/Franco is better than Pierre? The only argument that could have ever been made for Pierre is that he's a good leadoff hitter. In the 6th spot, his apparent value drops enormously.
Even in a horrid slump/year so far, Roche still has a higher OPS
Lo Duca is horrible. He's so overrated it's not even funny.
LoDuca is a "MUCH BETTER" hitter?
And Langerhans is tearing it up lately. 'll take production over names.
