Who is heading for the better year, Shef or Dunn?

Postby TB13 » Sun Mar 25, 2007 12:29 pm

I want to say Shef, but there are whispers about him still having lingering wrist issues. Which will affect his bat speed. Dunn will hit his homers, there is no doubt about that. But can he become a better overall hitter and raise his batting average?

Hasn't he been hitting rockets out of the park in spring training?

Easily Sheff unless you've got a link about the whispers...

Sheffield just hit a line drive homer to LF by the way. He's good.

My Head says Sheff but my Gutt says DUNN!

Always go with your Gutt! Dunn breaks out and becomes a top 10 OF this year!

How?!? He learned how to hit .300 over the break?

I'd say it'll look something like...

Sheff 90/35/110/8/.296
Dun 100/40/110/0/.260

With those numbers I'd take Sheff. Also I haven't heard anything about sore wrist... he missed some time for "personal reasons" and was away from the team for a couple days, but no injury reports. He also came back and had 28 ABs in September last year. He didn't light it up, but wasn't awful. If his wrist was ok to play in September, it's good now. If it wasn't ok Sheff wouldn't have played (he wouldn't want to come back too soon and hurt the remainder of his career).

I would probably say the same way Andruw Jones has become a top 10 OF.

Sheffield easily IMO, especially if your league counts batter's K's. :-P

I've got Sheff in practically all my leagues, I think he's pretty much a lock for 35 110 or so with a healthy season, which at DH shouldn't be hard, not that he is particularly injury prone to begin with.
