I was talking about Hootie's stats, not yours. Hootie said the opposite of what you are claiming using stats, so whose are right? I'm not anti-stat either by the way, but they do have their limitations. I think fielding is one of them.

ERB You read my posts wrong then. I'm not using my stats, i'm using Loftons stats. GTWMA is saying Lofton was average from 99 on, which he was. I'm talking the early Lofton. If you see my last post, i said in his career Lofton has been AVERAGE in range. I stated he once had great range, roughly a 3 year period, age 25-27 (92-94). At age 31, he fell off the earth. I never slammed Omar either, he was above average in career, just not enough. Lofton might have had a bad arm, but he's done ok with double digit assists 8 times, probably due to teams running on him alot. Lofton from 92-94, was probably the best cf in al, i checked Griffey and Edmonds those years. Career wise he doesn't measure up to those two, but for a period he did.

Now that could be entirely possible because I was living in Pittsburgh at the time. During that time frame I only got to see him play maybe a dozen times, which isn't enough for me to pass judgement. I stand corrected.

Soriano can't hit ninth because he's one of my keepers and it would really suck for my team to see him lose 100 or so plate appearances.

Boone bats 9th because he blows. "Swing and a Miss, Low and Away". By far the weakest hitter in the Yankee lineup if everyone is healthy. And also the guy most likely to pull a Jeff Weaver, can't handle NY.
