Nope, not even close. As usual you have no clue.
Kent has had 140 more AB's so naturally his production has been greater although only by a small amount. ESPN and Yahoo rankings are based solely on that. What they don't include and what you have to include for value purposes is that by having over a third more AB's, Kent has actually hurt a roster more than Castillo. Both have ordinary numbers but 432 AB's worth of ordinary numbers is far more damaging than 290 AB's worth of them.
