Shortstops: Boone or J. Hernandez?

I'm a Reds man - but I can't stand Boone. HOWEVER, if you need speed then you should take Boone. While his power stats may have been an anomaly, he still could give 15 hrs and 25 steals. If you don't have speed those 25 steals are going to be more valuable than maybe 15 extra hr's out of Hernandez!

the guy in front of me took boone... so the decision was easy for me... i took Hernandez.

As far as boone's power stats... i think he'll easily hit 25 homers because if you look at his slugging percentages he is more than capable of doing so... the only reason last year was the most he hit is because he managed to stay healthy... he could have topped 26 homers in previous years but he kept getting hurt... like in 2001, which could have been his best year, he injured his hand twice.
the real question mark with boone will be his steals, not his power.

anyway, thanks for the input guys.

Take Aaron Boone. Coors is overrated.

Jose Hernandez

Take Jose and here is why, Jose can not hit a breaking ball, but the ball doesn't break at Coors. Expect huge years from Jose and Wilson.

Too true...The ball doesn't break much. I'd take Boone for speed and Jose for power. Jose, Charles, Jay, and Preston will have huge years along with the usual crew.

Everyone who's ever come here has had mighty big seasons...including Galleraga, Bichette, and Cirillo who was over .300 every year I think. They all wish they'd never left. B-)

Not everyone succeeds at Coors. Of course guys like Bichette and Castilla put home/road splits in the mainstream. But Coors never helped Ben Petrick, Mike Lansing, Neifi Perez, Jeff Cirillo. Cirillos best avg, oba, and slugging seasons all came in Milwaukee.

I think boone is moving to second base this season. I'm sure i'll be corrected if wrong.

yeah he is, but he's also elibigle at shortstop in almost every league because he played 16 games there last year.... soon into the season, he'll be eligible at 2B as well as SS and 3B.

Hernandez will have some felxibility for your team because he will play 3rd base I beleive and in my book any player that has the potential to put up good #'s and play a couple positions is a plus.
