That's because it's not an obvious choice.
1. SD does not have a "potent" offense. They should fall right in the middle of all major league teams.
2. Burroughs will give you average and runs. Blake and Munson, who are both as secure as Burroughs, will easily dominate Burroughs in HRs and RBIs, since they hit in the middle of AL line-ups, while Burroughs hits behind the pitcher. Burroughs and Blake each stole 7, while Munson stole 3.
3. Burroughs is playing in a new park with unknown park factors.
4. Who gives a **** whether or not a player is "hot" after 4 games?
The choice really depends on what you need. If you need average and runs, Burroughs is your choice. If your team is weak in HRs and RBIs, Burroughs offers you squat and you ought to look at other options.
