The RBI's are the difference here as well as stolen base upside - CC could conceivably steal 50-60 bases and Rollins probably can not. I'd be more apt to call Rollins underrated (based on his 2005 performance - not the 2006 stinker he's had so far) than to say CC was overrated (again, just looking at the 2005 numbers that you quoted).
no i know there are many factors involved here other than purely comparing their 2005 numbers. i was just trying to use it as a sort of extreme example of 2 young players who both have very similar numbers but one is top 10 and one is barely top 50.
for what it's worth i took crawford in the 2nd and rollins in the 5th. kicking myself for both
