I've re-read it and have not at one time seen nor approached this as a keeper-based question.
The question was as it pertains to this coming season and the trends are not supportive that Wright is that much a better play for the coming season and also that Utley can not build upon his 05 season statistically.
But I accept that a younger player has more keeper value due to a liklihood of three year statistical projections. There is no argument against that point, but it is not correct in regards to draft slotting for 2006 exclusively at this point.

It is not statistically nor logically sound to claim that since a spike is unlikely after thirty it is equally unlikely after 26, and therefore much more likely after 23.
It may be a bit more likely but this guy's logic of an ABSURD 95% v. less than 50% ration has no statistical value.
I hope you understand this.

My historical analysis of trends is the work of an adult , and I think that's whats upsetting the "sabermetric crew" in here who never made a dime at the track, casino, or an on-line sportsbook.
anyway you slice this it c omes down to pure, unadulterated gambling and I find it laughable how out of depth the people who are posting up empty stats vs. tried and true trends are in this area.

A 27 year old player like Chase Utley has a 50 percent chance for improvement.
A 30 year old has about a 25 percent chance for improvement.
