Can you explain to me why konerko is more valuable than Giambi? more than just he plays more. Because we don't measure value on the person who plays the most.
Umm, actually you do when you have two very similar players.
Both 35-40 HR pop and both incredibly streaky hitters who don't hit for a great BA.
Konerko will have at least 100 AB's more than Giambi this season if both stay healthy. That is a ton of production you are misisng out on by keeping Giambi in your 1B slot.
That's a ton of bad production I am missing out on. So you think Konerko will hit 35 to 40 or are you just saying that he has done it before. Becaue there is no way IMO he will hit 35 to 40. He is currently at 7, along with a .211 batting average.
Konerko and Giambi are about even from this point all things being equal. Konerko will produce more though because he will have 70-75 more AB's from here. You need cover for Giambi when he doesn't play.
