Rios vs. Hart

Postby rookies and cream » Thu May 22, 2008 10:28 am

Well, the Hart vs. Vladdy thread became dinner for Hammy because it turned into a trade thread. Let's stay on topic for this one.

Rios and Hart have similar skill sets IMO. They even have similar body types.

Rios is batting 3rd in a crappy TOR lineup and Hart is batting 5th in a slumping (but improving) MIL line-up. Both are considered 30-30 candidates and were top 50-60 picks this year.

Who do you think will have a better season the rest of the way, and why?

I think Rios' power may be a little more developed, so if he keeps from fading in the second half again I say he'll have better numbers.

That said, there are a ton of similarities between these two and it wouldn't surprise me to see them both sitting at 25-HR, 25-SB, .295 with similar R+RBI at the end of the season. Or for either one to step into the "elite" category by the end of the year.

For now, I'd say Rios because he has a more proven track record. I expect good things from Hart, and in the future I think he can be better, but for now, I'll take Rios.

I think Hart has a better shot at 30-30 than Rios, which is why I'd rather have Hart for the rest of the way.

It's Hart for me, mostly because he could've been had for a round or two cheaper than Rios while both are capable of posting similar lines to each other by season's end.

I thought both were overrated going into the season and (not to change the subject) I think Markakis outpaces both this year and beyond.

Do you seriously have to bring up Markakis in every thread? Seems like you do...
