I don't have a idea about a lot of things because I extremely skeptical
that teams will surrender their first round pick for Scott Downs this winter?
Wow, okay you win. I'm clueless. Keep accruing for those draft picks if it makes you feel better.
It could be worse, you could evaluate player's net performance on a individual game basis
C'mon DaSh, he clearly stated on a per game basis which is very different from an individual single game
. Pedrioa has played 73 games due to injury, Cano 107, a sample size of 73 not 1 as you alluded to a few posts ago. Per game, their production is very close according to YAHOO (season average). Cano's numbers are slightly better; he's the #1 2B and Pedrioa is #2 this year, on a per game basis. Of guys with at least 50 GP, only two other hitters seperate Cano and Pedroia, Youkilis and Bautista, so yup pretty close. That's ALL the guy said, the rest you made up.
You do this all the time too, deliberately change the meaning of someone's post or take a snippet and knowingly post it completely out of context and then use your own deliberate misrepresentation and argue against it. Too bad man, you seem like know quite a bit about baseball for an 85 yo in a wheel chair and could be helpful. But instead of discussing A-Roid's worthiness as a 2011 first rounder you just can't get over a March (or was it even Feb?) thread that essentially said the two were close. As I recall, I Cano even held a small edge there, but there was no clear consensus going into 2010, per that post. I am pretty sure you again invented a completely different "truth" halfway through that thread so you could conveniently rail against the injustice of your invented majority of moronic Pedrioa lovers who somewhere inside your head had him miles ahead of Cano? From your input to this A-Roid thread, I guess they are still in there wreaking havoc. I'm old too but I sure hope I never see 85.
Back to A-Roid and 2011. I'd be cautious taking him there. The the R and RBI will likely to be 1st round worthy if the hip holds up (per game they surely will be ... couldn't resist) but it sure looks like he compensates for his hip in his swing now. A-Roid just hasn't been the same roto beast. 01-03 he was hitting a HR every 3.1 GP. 04-06 was essentially the same, a HR every 3.3 GP, he just wasn't in Arlington anymore. 08 he slipped to a bomb every 3.9 GP, 09 it was every 4.1 VP, and this year he's slipped all the way to a HR every 6 games. Who knows, maybe the hip gets better as he ages or BALCO reopens under a different name and they don't test as stringently. Maybe he doesn't have to exhume Marilyn Monroe to finally find the right has been cougar on his tragic search and can settle back in to a less volatile lifestyle. Whatever it is, I'm not touching that guy in the 1st round.
