Pat Burrell or Dmitri Young???

Postby patriot79 » Mon Apr 05, 2004 2:19 am

I have both of them on my bench but I'm looking to drop one to pick up another starting pitcher. Which one should go???

If you have to drop one, I would let Burrell go. But post your team before you do that.

Drop Burrell. He sucks. He's a "has been" that "never was."
Dmitri Young is a much better option to keep. He's a good hitter in an improved line-up and the best part is, he qualifies for 3rd base. Drop Burrell and pick up a player with better upside, such as Austin Kearns (everybody, including myself, forgot to draft him!), Geoff Jenkins, Ryan Klesko...or a pitcher such as Jeremy Affeldt, Jose Acevedo...

Though Young qualifies at 3B, too, Burrell's upside is too large to ignore. He'll bounce back emphatically this year.

I agree with warrick. Burrell has gone back to the basics again with his hitting. Going over what he did before last season, and taking the ST time to correct the problem. He is still going to be hitting 4th in that , "much" better then Tigers, line up. RBI should come and the power will still be there.

People might disagree with me, but those that do had Burrell last season only when he burnt them. With so much upside, I would not let him go, just so another owner will prosper..

Just my 2 cents

Burrell plays in a better park, better lineup and has better protection and potential. Gotta keep the bat over D'meat hook.

Dmitri Young by a landslide.

What is Burrells upside again? 30-35 hrs, 100 rbis, .270 avg?

While Dmitri is pretty much a lock for 30, 100, .300?

This is an easy answer.

Man, how biased can you get? Funny how Dimitri is a lock for 30 and 100 when he has never reached those marks in any of his 8 year career.

I'd go with Dmitri Young because of his 3B eligibility and the fact that the Tigers have a little more protection for him this year, Pudge. That 3B eligibility can come in handy. Also, he dicn't just hit .208 last season, so you really don't question his production if healthy.

As far as Burrell is concerned, really high upside if you get him for backup OF. I just wouldn't take Young over him because of the 3B elgibility.

Sorry - he hit 29, 85, and .297 last yr with literally 0 protection. I was making a logical conclusion. I guess your right though - overstating his HRs by 1 and BA by .003 makes me incredibly biased. I am truly and deeply sorry.
