IMO i think he produces better then Jeter this year and for years to come... hes a guy whos averaged 20+ hr the past 3 years with if im not mistaken at leas 85+ rbi also, his average is a little worse then that of a healthy jeter but i think he more then makes up for it... and actually i think Hardy tops Jeter also... i rank them in order:
Lopez (because of all the positions)
I like Peralta, you can get him fairly late and get power out of a normally weak position. However I couldnt help but double take the statement that his average is a LITTLE worse than that of a healthy Jeter.
.276 last year compared to Jeters (unhealthy) .300. Thats more than a little imo! 07 Jeter hit .322; 06 Jeter hit .344. Come on now! lets not go making any crazy statements just to make your boy Peralta appear better. Jeter destroys Peralta in Avg and Obp!!
ok don't really care bout the whole jeter 'healthy or unhealthy' what i was saying is peralta makes up for the average, 10 more hr 20 more rbi 16 more runs, but i suppose thats cuz jeter was unhealthy hey? also have to look at Jeter doesn't have Arod to begin the season, and i don't care how crappy giambi looked he was still running protection for jeter in that lineup and hes now also gone... there are more factors effecting my decision then just mere stats... peralta is not 'my boy' i actually am not a fan of his, but with the addition of Derosa, a healthy VMart and of corse Sizemore i think peralta is forgotten a little more and able to make more big plays then jeter this year...
you can't just pick the positive for Peralta and the negatives for Jeter.
If you say the addition of DeRosa.....what about the addition of Tex? which one is better?
A healthy Vmart......a healthy Jeter, healthier Matsui, Posada, Damon (all arguable but still)
Like i posted before, I like Peralta, I love the power at SS, but just couldnt accept the some of your argument.
