It's close, but you'd probably change your opinion if you watched Matsui play everyday. He is THE guy you want up there no matter what, it seems like he always comes through.

What about Lugo, Cantu, Huff, and Travis Lee? Can't nobody beat any 2, 3, or 4 in that lineup.

Or Sweeney and ??? Who the hell hits for KC anyway?

    Dlee/Aram 154.3
    Arod/Sheff 142.4
    Pujols/Edmonds 133.8
    Manny/Ortiz 131.8
    Mcab/Delgado 131.6
    Roberts/Mora 127.2
    Tex/Soriano 126.4
    Mora/Tejada 125.2


Nice post; do you have last year's numbers for the same players? Yes I know the batting order wasn't necessarily the same last season as well as from FA signings, but I think that part only affects Cabrera and Delgado.

Sure no problem ;-D

Also last year Bonds and Durham combined for 269.9 runs created which puts them 2nd behind Pujols/Edmonds. It really shows you how dominant Bonds is.

Wow! That's a crazy stat right there.

Yanks 3-4-5 may be the best in quite some time at least from a stats point of view. Maris-Mantle-Berra was better...so were Ruth-Gehrig-Muesel, Keller-Dimaggio-Dickey. I am sure there are some others.

Ortiz and Ramirez probably edges out Arod/Sheff offensively...but not by a whole lot.

D. Lee and Aramis...Pujols and Edmonds are up there also. The way Lee is playing this season, he might carry it my himself.


And while defense is unrelated to offensive production, if you factor in that Arod is a 3b and Sheff a decent RF compared to Ortiz who is mostly a DH/beached whale 1b and Manny a pretty lousy LF (despite what Boston fans want to think) I still rather have our two.


Now if you want to talk about best hitter against TB in May or with a 5 run lead...there is one clear choice.
