ROS - Altuve or Walker?

Postby Pav » Sat Aug 11, 2012 11:45 am

José Altuve(Hou - 2B) or Neil Walker (Pit - 2B)

Should I consider grabbing Walker for Altuve? I am surprised Walker is still on the FA.

H2H mixed, weekly: W-L-T
Cats: R, H, 1B, 2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SB, TB, A, FPCT, AVG, OPS, CYC, OFA

Note: A hit counts hits x5. H, 1b/2b/3b, TB, AVG, OPS. A stolen base is only counted once. Hence, AVG/OPS are main stats to build off.

I think Walker. He's showing a similar average and run total to Altuve with more power and more RBIs, hence higher OPS. The only drop would be in steals but I don't know how important that is with Melky, Andrus, and Victorino. Plus you have to like the Pirates going forward over the Astros.

Gotta go with Walker. He's finally having the season that has been expected of him.

Altuve I think is the only Astro that I can name.
