By that logic, Estrada is perhaps the best hitter in the league - .451 RISP.
C'mon don't insult us. That's a dumb thing to say and you know it. That's a post that I would expect from a first time poster.
Rolen and Pujols are both studs in fantasy and in real life.
They both have all-star track records. Pujols has the higher ceiling and better potential, but right now nobody in baseball is in a groove like Rolen.
How is it dumb? You claim Rolen is a better hitter (right now) than Pujols because his current stats are better. Obviously, Rolen is hotter right now, but even with that, Pujols is far and away the "better hitter" and is the guy that would be protecting Bonds if I were the NL Manager.
By the way, a first time poster wouldn't have backed up their reasoning with a statistic. And like I said, "according to your logic". You said Rolen is a better hitter right now because his BA RISP is high, so I said Estrada's is even higher therefore he's "hotter" at the moment and the more fearsome hitter. According to your logic, that works perfectly.
