Biggio over Giles is a bad idea. 28 points is not a slight drop-off in BA. Just using last year's numbers you are sacrificing 28 points in BA, 5 SB and 10 runs for 10 HR and 6 RBI. Giles earned $7 more than Biggio in a 5x5 last year and given their ages I doubt anything will change next year. Biggio just had a career high in HR and will turn 40 next year. If you expect him to repeat I think your expecting a little too much.dyuen87 wrote:Pogotheostrich wrote:Crazy talk.

crazy talk? i highly doubt that. as long it's not a keeper leauge, you've got to put these two on similar levels. by the way you said that it would seem like giles is a lot better than biggio, but in reality biggio is just as good if not better than giles. a slight dropoff in average is worth 11 more homers in a season and 6 more rbis. their runs scored is similar and giles has 5 more sbs. you would probably be able to pick up biggio in later rounds of the draft as well.

Edit: Cantu is also only 23 years old!
Guarenteed? Based on what?
Too funny what prejudice does to people's ratings of players, young and old.
I'd have no problems banking on Cano as my 2B in 2006 and even moreso in leagues counting doubles and/or not OBP.

Cantu even had more doubles per AB
