Dropping Suzuki for Pierzynski or Lucroy?

Postby Pav » Tue Apr 17, 2012 12:43 am

I'm leaning with consistent Pierzynski. Although, Lucroy is tough to pass on.

I like Lucroy but I don't think any of these guys are much better than each other.

Pierzynski seems to me to be a "do no harm" selection whereas Lucroy has a more positive impact on counting stats.

With a 370 BA, of course Pierzynski is playing over his head but even when he regresses to his norm that is a decent, unexciting but productive "do no harm" bat.

Lucroy might do somewhat better in terms of counting stats but there's a lot to be said for safe production.

So Pierzynski?

I prefer Pierzynsky over Lucroy, although Lucroy is off to a nice start, I just dont expect him to keep it up.
