He usually has a good OBA, which is .359 for his career. 2003 was bad, but overall he's been OK and has proven himself to be a .350 OBA guy. Not great, but Monroe, his main competition IMO had a career high .337 OBA last year. And Monroe's not even proven - which was my point about Higginson. Monroe does have a better OPS but he's also only played 2 part seasons. You can't just look at BA either, where Higginson is lacking; his BA was 50 points lower than Monroe, but his OBA was 20 points higher. Not making outs is a pretty big deal. His BA was also 30 points lower than his career average; I wouldn't expect it to stay that low.

Higginson isn't great, but he's around as good as Monroe, and you know what to expect, plus he makes about $11M more so I really doubt he'll sit on the bench while Monroe starts.

LBJACKAL:

I think you will get your way, this pretty much locks up Higgy as the starting RF next year. Monroe got nailed for shoplifting over the weekend, thatll pretty much end his days here in Detroit. It was a belt, a thirty dollar belt, unbelievable.

Well I think the main reason is that $12M contract Higgy has. What were the Tigers thinking giving him that contract?

The old management was bad - what else can we say? You point at Higgy's contract, but Damion Easleys was almost as bad and that just came off the books this yr. Im pretty sure the albatross that is Higginsons contract comes off after the 2005 season. ;-D

Yeah Easley's was horrible - did they end up paying all of it even though he didn't even play for a couple seasons? I remember they cut him but that seems like a long time ago to still have been paying him all the way until 2004.
