Blalock vs. Rolen vs AROD vs Chavez

Postby GreenMonsterGoon » Sat Jan 29, 2005 9:18 pm

Comparing these two using both the TSN magazine and the Bill James Handbook. It appears......

Blalock:

TSN: .290 34 103r 114rbi 2sb
BJ: .287 39 102 106 2


Chavez:

TSN: .280 33 95 103 8
BJ: .275 32 94 100 6

AROD:

TSN: .292 40 112 106 20
BJ: .297 42 116 118 20

Rolen:

TSN: .297 34 106 117 6
BJ: .293 39 101 112 7


All this considered, are the top 4:
1. A-Rod
2. Rolen
3. Blalock
4. Chavez
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

I have them....
Arod
Chavez
Rolen
Blalock

I don't like Blaylock as much as some do, it's going to be one more year until Blalock really shows us what he can do IMO.

Edit: If you want to include those 4 I have it...
Arod
Beltre
Chavez
Rolen
Ramirez
Mora
Blalock
Huff

Last year he was able -for the first time ever - to his lefties and righties equally well. Give him a full season and he'll hit .310 with 40 homers and 115 rbis.

So....You have Chavez improving .33 points on his 7 YEAR CAREER AVG. And giving him 6 more HR than his BEST year ever (assuming he can play more than 153 games, which he did that year), and would also top his career high in RBI.

I've rarely seen a veteran of that many years show that drastic an average shift and I don't see how he will improve in every category with next to no protection in the awful lineup that he hits in.

He'll be 27 years old next year, if you don't think he can still improve then that's fine I just choose to believe that he can. Now I don't have his BA being over .300 but right around .290 seems alright to me. Rolen had a career year and will come back down this season. And like I said earlier about Blalock he's a year away IMO.

He's a year away of being a top 5 3B is what I mean, not that he's not a great 3B, because he is.
