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

Rollins will come around....he's too good of a hitter to keep this up. Crawford however is looking like a lost cause for this season. News has come out that his wrist is still bothering him a lot. That's why the power isn't there. In a keeper league this isn't a bad thing - an offseason of rest and he'll be good as new. It also makes him a great target for keeper leagues and a great guy to get cheaply in next year's draft. But I don't see the power turning around at all this year unless he goes on the DL for close to a month and since he's able to play through the pain I don't see that happening. His average will be down a bit with the lack of home runs, his rbi/r's will be down a bit also due to the lack of power...the only thing that might benefit is that he may swipe a few more bags because none of his hits will be leaving the yard.
