Impossible. The 3 Youk sentence is a myth.
And 25-26 HR is a baseline for Aramis' numbers, he could just as easily turn around and hit 35 HR and I'd peg the median at 29-31

And Youkilis can easily turn around and hit 29 again but I feel it is much safer to project 20. Ramirez has hit 26 and 27 the last two years and has hit 35+ only 2 times in his entire career, he is also a player that has been dinged up a lot in his career so struggled to play full seasons.
I don't mind someone picking Ramirez, heck I'd do it myself. I just don't see where this 'Ramirez blows him away' stuff comes from.
Also for the other person in the thread, Youkilis is 1 year younger.
Ramirez - June 1978 (born in DR so could easily be 77 or 76 too~)
Youkilis - March 1979
See, I'm repeating exactly what I said about Byrnes last year to people that drafted him ahead of Vlad, Dunn, etc. A player breaks out around age 30 and rides an assload of luck factors to a top 30 finish. Give me experience every time.
By the way, Aramis played 149 games last year and 157 in 2006. Youk has never topped 147 in his career.
