not to split hairs, his numbers declined last year. The year before that, 2004, he had maybe the best numbers of his career. Even last year, his numbers were pretty good.
But there was a decline, but it was probibly more dramatic coming off his best year.
Runs 2004=102, 2005=88
HR 2004= 42, 2005=29
RBI 2004=111, 2005 = 89
SB 8, 5
BA .301, .263
His numbers last year are down, but not too far off from what his career numbers look like.
dont know if that helps. I dont think he was as bad as everyone thought he was.
A Jones 2005
Runs 95 HIts 154 HR 51 RBI 128 BA .263 OBP .347 SLG .575 SB 5
J Edmonds 2005
Runs 88 Hits 123 HR 29 RBI 89 BA .263 OBP .385 SLG.533 SB 5
Just for fun: Edmonds 2004
Runs 102 Hits 150 HR 42 RBI 111 BA .301 OBP .418 SLG .643 SB 8 SO 150
It could be argued, the Edmonds had a fairly close year statistacally to Jones. Granted Jones had more guys to knock in, from RBIs,and JOnes Killed him in the HR department, and Slugging. I mean Jimmy was no Jones, but he wasnt TOO terribly far off. I dont get why Jones was close for MVP, compared to Pujols and Lee.
Anyone here (who probibly has a way better baseball knowlege than me) want to show me what im looking at wrong.
Or is it closer than we would all think from the surface? I mean, im kind of new to this and want ot learn.
oh and Jones struk out 112 times, and Edmonds 139 OUCH!
I can see why Jones is a much better fantasy player, and Edmonds is really annoying with days off, streakyness, and little injuries.
