Last year was also Baldelli's "best" year.

Cubs would look good, but Maddux is asking for too much money.

how can u compare a guys rookie season, with a a 7 year veterans? Nice try DK.


I'm just using it as an example. Baldelli's average dropped 34 points after the all-star break, and yet you are very high on him.

Regardless, I don't want to hijack this thread. Like I said before, Maddux is asking for too much money.

yet he still finishes with a higher batting average by 6 points and 18 more hits.. hmm


Justin, listen to me. I'm not attempting to compare Walker and Baldelli, quite the contrary, I believe Baldelli is a better player overall. But when you consider the fact that you are down on Walker because of a 19-point decrease in average, it only seems logical you would be down on Baldelli as well, because Baldelli's drop-off was much greater.

ok i understand that, but this could have all ended when I said your comparing a rookie to a 7 year veteran.. a rookie is gunna bounce back.

Not all rookies "bounce back". Some do, and Baldelli probably will. Some players have their primes start later than others, maybe Walker is starting his. Who knows? Not me.

So does anyone think there is any chance Maddux will sign with the Cards? I guess Cubs are a more likely destination since Jocketty has to be so tightfisted these days and Pujols is hungry for greenbacks... But since our staff is so iffy these days I think signing a guy like Maddux would give St. Louis a little breathing room.
