Mark Loretta vs. Jose Vidro

Postby Baseballer02 » Thu Mar 18, 2004 11:33 am

How does Loretta rank with Jose Vidro? I was plannin on trading Loretta and another player for Vidro but when I looked at the stats, Loretta's #'s are comparable with Vidro's. Loretta did have more at-bats than Vidro, but this year Loretta is hitting in a better lineup this year than Vidro. Need some more opinions on this, as Loretta may be more valuable as a 2B than we all thought.

Vidro has more what they call potential meaning he has not displayed it over an extended period of time only because of injuries. If he can stay healthy he would be the 4th best 2b behind
Soriano, Boone & Kent.

Wouldn't that make him the 3rd best 2b?

there is a pretty good chance that vidro will be on the redosx or the yankees by july, which would improve his value dramaticaly.

I think Vidro is ten times the player Loretta is. And as stated earlier, a trade to a contender would only increase his value.

Agreed, Vidro is a top of the line hitter. If it wasnt for his september meltdown(bad back) he wouldve blowed byt Loretta in every cat

I'm not so sure a move to Sox or Yanks would Vidro too much. Granted, he will get a few more runs and RBIs, but maybe not so many as you think since he would be hitting down in the order. Also, particularly in the case of the Yanks, he will be moving to a pitchers park. Don't forget that Olympic is the #2 hitters park in the NL behind Coors, and the stadium in Puerto Rico is such a launching pad that it makes Coors look like Pac Bell or Pro Player. So you can expect a drop in Avg and HRs, which does much to undermine any R or RBI gains.

The most important thing about Vidro possibly being traded is that he gets away from the Olympic Stadium astroturf and stays healthy. More games means more stats.
