Rios vs. Hamilton?

Postby Millhouse » Thu Apr 24, 2008 4:22 pm

Two solid young outfielders who have started off well...but who would you want rest of season, Alex Rios or Josh Hamilton? Hamilton's AVG seems to be higher than usual right now, could settle down into the .290 range. Ditto for Rios, who's over .300 right now, but has been a high .200's kind of hitter. Hamilton has Rios on HRs and RBI, they're about even on runs, but Rios seems to run more, has Hamilton on steals. Hamilton has a better BB/K rate. Rios, it seems, has a jusssssst slightly better lineup around him.

Thoughts?

I'll take Hamilton. Ironically there was a long thread about the two players before the season:

If you needed a slugger, Hamilton; otherwise, Rios. But they're going to be pretty close valuewise.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Hamilton. I wish I had him, he's just someone I really want to pull for. I mean he went from out of ball for 4 year straight to the bigs and dominated. Not to mention he had never been higher than AA before, amazing freak.

good thread to start (i should have just found that and bumped it up to-date) but it's a bit dated at this point, last post was still pre-season. one month in, it seems that those who said they'd be pretty similar, with hamilton having an edge in power and rios in steals, are looking smart.

Maybe it's just me, I do like Hamilton a lot, but I think it is Rios by a pretty decent margin.

I think Rios plays in a stronger line-up but Hamilton has more overall power/slugger potential. It all depends on what you're looking for, Rios and Hamilton ultimately are the same kind of player but Hamilton has some more power upside.
