How is it not close?
Gordons projections are about the same as last years numbers.
Should be around 20 hrs 80 rbis.
Carpenter is in for a regression. Still good, but more like .290 90-100 runs.
Stat wise they are close. The only reason i might give Carpenter the edge, is a 4 round differnce.
Here's how its not close - Carpenter qualifies at 2B/3B and Gordon is an OF. A 20-80-90 OF is solid - a 10-75-90 2B is elite.
Stats are what matter. Position scarcity is way overrated.
You could make the case a 5 OF league, OF is more scarce then 2B.
Carpenter under this leagues settings, was $8 better last year.
But Carp isn't going to have those numbers again.
I bet Gordon beats him in hrs, sb, rbis, ops a push, only runs Carp might win.
Forget tags like elite and solid.
They have Gordon being $8 better in this setting this year.
I'm just saying it's very close. If the round was the same, i take Gordon.
Carp has a 4 round edge here, so that might favor him.
