how about over the next 4 years?
That's still gotta be Ellsbury man
Runs: +10 Ells
RBI: +5 Ells or Wash
HR: Wash in my opinion...Ells isn't a 30 guy but he's definitely gotten bigger, gradually creating more and more of a power approach..Ells is def good for 18-20 HRs in a healthy season which Trout is probably very close to ..he's beating it right now but he's in a hot streak..
Steals: Ellsbury +10 probably
Average: Wash...both project out as .300 hitters
Jacoby turns 29 at the end of this season...I really think he's still a better player in every category (given his #1 spot in Boston's lineup)...no reason for me to take Trout for this year or even the next couple OTHER THAN injury concerns for Ellsbury..I just hate projecting injuries for position players though
still feel the same way?
