lee is better, but its not like pujols is a butcher in the field. pujols is well above average defensively.
Whoever said Rolen and Aramis are close is insane.
rolen is easily the better defender. IF rolen is healthy, there isnt much difference between him and ramirez offensively. ramirez slugs a little more while rolen has a little better on base ability. i think being one full year post surgery rolen will be closer to his peak years in the power numbers, but that is no sure thing.
And since when were Encarnacion and Jones equal? I'll take a .285/.344/.499 (.833 OPS) with 27 bombs and 85 RBI over .278/.317/.443 (.760 OPS) with 19 bombs 79 RBI anyday.
so would i, but is jones a lock for those numbers? neither jones nor encar are particularly great players and in any given year will likely put up similar numbers.
Soriano and Edmonds would be a joke to even compare
will soriano even play CF?
i really doubt derosa repeats 2006. he is a utility player.
Izturis is a better hitter then Eckstein
no he isnt.
(who leads off in front of Pujols, etc and cant get 70 runs)
because he missed about 40 games
In Izturis' last full healthy year, he had 190+ hits and 90 runs with 25 steals and a .290 average.. Not bad if u ask me..
he did that once in his entire career. his career year OPS matches eck's career avg. izturis has a career obp of under .300. thats bad if you ask me.
