Pudge has D Young, sanchez, munson enough said
Bonds is Bonds but how many walks did he have? how many times did he get stranded?
Teamates help players succeed, the better the supporting cast the better the player can be!!!
i seriously doubt dimitri young, alex sanchez and eric munson had AL Central pitching coaches shaking in their cleats. I might have taken you the slightest bit seriously had you said carlos guillen.
i agree that suporting cast can make players better, but im hesitant to hold it against them too much if the surrounding players arent really, really weak. well's suporting cast might limit him to 100 RBI instead of the 110 he could get if he were playing for another team. But to me, that diference hardly makes him "unkeepable" as you seem to claim.
Im not saying you shouldnt look at supporting cast, but i think you're overestimating the effect just a tad. Like you said, the guy isnt bonds. he's still gonna see his pitches
