H2H, standard 5x5 categories.

Which one of these injury-prone outfielders do you think will have the better season?

Kearns. Much younger, better park, more talent. Id take him over Drew, but I think if Drew could stay healthy a whole year, he may be the guy, but its too hard to tell, since he has never been healty.

Hmm, i could have sworn he got hurt at the end of the 2002 season just like last year.

I do see that he missed the last 4 weeks of the 2002 season, though i'm not sure what from??

It wasnt the same injury as 2002 last year. It was a freak collission at home plate that got him hurt. That is not the kind of DL stint you label guys as injury prone because of.

Fair enough. :-)

But he's not exactly off to a roaring start either.

I'm willing to label Kearns as injury prone. He was their first pick in the draft where they chose Dunn 2nd. He got hurt in the minors and Dunn made it to the majors first.

Then he got injured in 2002 and 2003. Granted, they were different kind of injuries. But he does have a long injury history for a guy his age.

To answer the original poster: Kearns - no doubt. He's less injury prone than Drew, he plays in a better hitters park, he is more talented IMO, he's younger, etc.

If they both stay healthy and that's a big if, Kearns would be a better play because of the ballpark.

Kearns without question. Drew has been around longer and still hasn't put up a full season.

I think Kearns will have the better year....and the injuries he has had..have been legitimate ones....injured by playing...not like Drew, who misses a week for a hang nail.... }:-)
