that's not cool, hombre. i have heard the rios is a vernon wells clone with power/speed/avg capabilities. i have heard that gathright is faster than crawford.
my interest in comparison is in the probability that either one of these guys will start to light it up this year, next year, or later. jackal, your take is pretty helpful. i have watched some of rios' recent at-bats, and he is actually starting to look pretty sweet.
gathright (to me, anyway) still looks overmatched...until he's on base. there are a lot of good, young outfielders out there, now. crazy times for positions 7, 8 and 9.
