Exactly. I've seen Werth go as early as 10th (ECL) and that is way too early for my taste. Werth's MDP is 140 and Dukes' is 251. I'd rank them close to each other, with Dukes having a slight edge, but there's no way I'm taking Werth anywhere near where he's going.
Dukes usually goes way earlier than his MDP suggests btw. 259 MDP = 23rd. In the ECL he went in the 13th. Are you screaming about that?
Not as loud, but 13th is early for Dukes too.
Hi, I'm Neato Torpedo, you may remember me from such topics as "Aramis Ramirez vs. Kevin Youkilis" and "Rowand??????????". Today I'll be deriding another breakout season from a 29 year old in "Jayson Werth vs. Elijah Dukes".
What matters less than what we see is what Manuel sees. And if Manuel notices that Werth gets fewer hits against RHP then he's more likely to sit. He knows that Werth has been a platoon player for most of his career, and he's more likely to use him as such. He may be a starter now but he's likely on a tight leash, especially with trusty veterans Stairs and Jenkins backing him up.
