[quote="LBJackal"]my point was that just because Chavez is drafted too early doesn't make him better than Young. He has more trade value, but he's not better.
Commerce major, sounds cool
my school doesn't doesn't even have a business department, only Business/Econ
oh well, they say you don't learn business in college anyways and I think that's very true
Chavez is drafted much earlier than Micky Mouse Boy (check out Dimiti's mug shot on yahoo, it's hilarious
1) Chavez still has some of those Giambi-Tejada-Chavez aftereffect illusion that gives him an artificial boost in value.
Exaggerated Example: The Dot-Com stocks during the hay days. Some stocks did take a while to finally tank because they were held by die-hard stockowners still remembering the record stock prices in the late 90's while trying to discount the fact that the company has been laying off left and right
2) Chavez is on a winners' team and Dimiti was on a loser's team
Exaggerated Example: Two similar performing stocks, I'd rather buy MechWarrior Inc stock than Composts R Us stock. The Tigers players are just unjustifiably perceived as not as "sexy" as the Oakland players due to their dismal records in previous years.
3) Guys wanna showboat their rosters to others and Chavez gets more respect than Micky Mouse Boy
4) Therefore Chavez has more trade value due to reasons above.
If I had Chavez, I'd trade for Young and another undervalued stock, I mean player.
