Also, while Crawford has stolen just one less base than Pods, he has been caught 10 times to Pods's 2! When Pods starts to hit more singles, the SB will rise. He was on a very good streak before his BA slumped, so that could change.
Um this is Crawfords 2nd full year and he is quite young. So I don't see how saying Crawford never hit above .300 proves anything at all on your point.
Also most leagues don't count CS's and he's a young player and that will improve.
There pretty close in my opinion, but Pods spike in power to me doesn't make up for Crawford's avg. Also the Rays look to be having a much better offense for the rest of this year.
