Who is the Better Shortstop?

Postby rasto21585 » Sun Apr 19, 2009 11:14 pm

For fantasy baseball, who do you think is going to be the better player and why? Alcides Escobar or Elvis Andrus?

I'd take Andrus. He's two years younger and put up comparable stats at each level. I think he'll be the better offensive producer when all is said and done.

I'll go with Andrus too....he's in a very nice park with a good offense around him as well. I've never been an Andrus fan(offensively) until this year...not that I think he's going to be a stud offensively but he appears very mature up at the plate and has impressed me with how he goes about his business up there.

#3 for Elvis. I've got him about 15 spots higher on my list. I trust his bat a little more, mainly because of his park.

In reality, I might take Alcides because of defense, but even there it is close.
In my fridge: Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS), Central Waters Peruvian Morning, Bell's Batch 10,000, Dale's Pale Ale, Capital Brewery Amber, New Glarus Moon Man, and Guinness.

I'd pick Andrus though I think A. Escobar is a little bit safer.
