Well, I think the point is is that if you have them right next to each other in your rankings, there isn't much obviousness that you would choose Youk. If someone had Youkilis ranked 120 spots higher than Tabata, it would be obvious that they would choose him. But you can't have your cake of, "They're basically the same" and eat it too, "but obviously I would take Youkilis if they were both on the board."
