Whoz Better 3B?

I'd say Lowell only because he has a better track record. This is Aramis' only second good season (plus his half season with the Cubs last season, I guess). But Aramis does have youth on his side.

If you read my post, he doesn't cool off in the seocnd half. He's had a bad august ONCE. His 2 injuries that landed him on the DL were cancer 4 years ago, and a broken hand after he was hit by a pitch last season (he still managed to be the best fantasy 3B despite missing a month). So from that, you get this: injury proned player who always hits bad in the second half. Wow.

Aramis is way over his head in the BA department, his career BA is .262, so he's batting 64 points over his career average. He will most likely hit for about the same BA as Lowell from here on out, if not worse. Lowell has also hit for more power both last year, this year, and even 2 years ago. His OPS is better than Aramis' this year, and for their careers Lowell destroys him in OPS, HR, RBI, you name it.

I'm not saying it can't happen that Aramis will be better, I'm saying it's more likely that Lowell will be better. If you think this is the real Aramis, go ahead and trade for him. But don't come crying if he hits .250 in the second half...........

Definitely Lowell. A lock for 32 homers and a possible 40 dinger threat.
