If I had to go with one of those two, I'd go with Bradley.

I'd rather bet on Griffey going uninjured than either of those guys breaking out.

Bradley sounds like a better bet, simply because the O's OF/1B/DH situation is such a logjam that Bigbie is not a lock for consistent PT. Bradley will play every day and has a manager who in general likes to run, which is half the battle for SB production. I still can't see the gameboard hitting more than 20 HRs as a 2005 best case scenario, however.

Call me silly, most of the folks here do, but I don't very often use the term "5-tool" with Larry Bigbie. I usually assume a true 5-tool player will be a pretty strong SB threat. Averaging three a year doesn't seem like a strong threat.

Bradley, on the other hand does show the ability to steal some. Double digits the past two years indicate he may have some wheels to go along with some power. It just sucks that he has to play in that park! What would he be worth at Coors?
