Where's the "too close to call" option?

Considering that the one that plays the easiest position to fill is being paid ~$130M over the next six years and the other who plays a much more difficult position is being paid ~$25M over the next five, I believe that you're wrong.
Think about building the perfect run-preventing team. If they can't score, they'll never win.
I'd like someone to present some evidence that they're not close to being equals when you consider the entirety of what they bring to the table. That includes defensive value, position, everything. Evidence! I'm completely willing to listen and review evidence, but batting average, RBIs, and perpetuating the myth of "lineup protection" do not count as such.
