Who's better 3b, Crede or Beltre?

Postby kswiss » Sat Mar 22, 2003 5:44 pm

I have Crede on my bench, but have a chance to pick up Beltre to replace him on the bench, what should I do?

My Lineup:
C Hall, Toby (C-TB)
1B Dunn, Adam (LF, 1B, RF-Cin)
2B Soriano, Alfonso (2B-NYY)
3B Boone, Aaron (3B, SS-Cin)
SS Renteria, Edgar (SS-StL)
OF Berkman, Lance (CF, LF-Hou)
OF Burrell, Pat (LF-Phi)
OF Wilson, Preston (CF-Col)
Util Vidro, Jose (2B-Mon)
Bench Phelps, Josh (DH-Tor)
Bench Kearns, Austin (RF-Cin)
Bench Crede, Joe (3B-CWS)

Both are young, hard hitting 3b. In my opinion, a good indication of whether a player is ready for the majors is his k/bb ratio. Last year, Crede had 40 strikeouts and 8 walks. Beltre had 96 k's to 37 walks. I suspect that Crede will one day be the better 3b, but for this year I think that Beltre is a more mature hitter and worth more. Although you could hold off and pick up Beltre in the 2nd half -- he's generally a strong finisher and a slow starter.

I LOVE Crede - but, I think I'd take Beltre here. SB's swing it for me and Crede is till only shown for a half season.

Nice squad ...

I have both on my team and i give the starting job to Crede. If lthe second half of last season is any indication of this year he should be great.
