To me he is an all around better offensive player than Manny.

The fans are going to love him and appreciate him. For the first time in Vlad's career he has a home. By the way he has protection and is hitting an a explosive lineup.
Guerrero will be a stud.
Over the past two years Vlad has hit 35 HR at home and 29 HR away. He did however have an easier time getting RBIs at home.Mr.Cocky! wrote:Vlad's career high HR's is 44, and that's when he was playing in Montreal, which has a better hitters park than every team except Colorado and Texas. No way he goes over 40 this season. And if he indeed takes it easy on his legs 2 or 3 months, his steals will all but vanish. Like I said, he is a 35/12 guy with an above .300BA.
Good call with the Ramirez comparison Brendo. The two are definately comparable if you take away Vlad's steals. I suppose blind love could be one of the only reasons to value Guerrero more.Brendo wrote:I'm not fighting for Manny's honor, but what makes Vlad better if the steals go away?
