I think there's a good chance that Choi will outproduce Green this year if he's given a substantial amount of PT. In a standard 5x5 league, you've gotta give the edge to Green though, you're right.

i'm curious as to why you believe that. :-? recent hot streak aside, choi just doesn't have anything like green's track record (three 40+ homer seasons), and choi has moved to dodger stadium this year (still a pitchers park IIRC), while green has moved away to a pretty decent hitter's park in Arizona. whats more, i like the arizona lineup more, especially once greenie gets bumped up to the 4 or five hole ahed of glaus and behind luis gonzalez. his BA will be anywhere in the .285-.300 range.

choi, OTOH, hasn't had a year with more than 15 HR (although he'll certainly blow that away this season, as he is alrady at 13), and he's headed for a "career year" with his .261 post-hot streak BA. he's a fine player and i really like his, especially at cost, in terms of real baseball, but he is getting real playing time this year. he's only sat out 7 games, and yet his periferal numbers are very mediocre for someone with as many homers as he's got. 29 RBI/24 Runs makes me think that he just doesn't have the supporting cast to push him to elite status this year. i figure he'll end up hitting around .250-.260 with 25-30 homers, 80 rbi and 75 runs, all in 145 GP. green is gonna blow that away. :-)

so bb, do you disagree with my assessment of choi? will this truly be a breakout year for him? or am i just over-estimating what green will do this year? :-D

I wonder if he'll get to my original projections, though. This is the time to really tell.

I have him on almost all my teams.

Shawn Green is "The Suck"

Last year he had one 4 HR game and then faded into oblivion the rest of the year. This year he's had one very good week. Oblivion nears.
