Player comparison - Not a drop/add question

Postby mak1277 » Sat Jul 01, 2006 10:17 am

Year-to-date stats have been normalized for a 550 AB season for the purposes of analysis, but both guys have over 140 ABs.

Player A - 38 HRs, 91 runs, 87 RBIs, 4 SBs, .241 avg.

Player B - 52 HRs, 113 runs, 103 RBIs, 2 SBs, .231 avg.

Player B is owned in every league out there (and I'm sure some pretty smart people around here will be able to name him). Player A though, isn't even talked about. I haven't seen a single thread about him anywhere on the forum. He's got nice position eligibility.

Obviously he's not projecting for monster numbers...but they are ownable, yes? I just found this interesting...I'll post the player later on.

I am pretty sure player B is Adam Dunn.

Bautista and Uribe are the only .241 cats out there right now in FA with any semblance of HR/RBI numbers, so I can only assume one of them are mystery man B...

Bautista's a mystery to me. Very limited ABs, and has managed to hit for power, but he shows no indication of ever batting over .250 (after his 1st 10 2006 games, he's only been above it for a total of 1 game), so I know I won't be picking him up.

You guys never cease to amaze. Yes, it's Bautista and Dunn. As far as playing time goes, I think Bautista is the Pirates starting CF for the rest of the year. He has started every game but one in the last 15 days.

I also agree that I'm not a huge fan of the Dunn-type player, so I probably won't pick him up....but it is odd to me that he's not owned anywhere, including my NL-only.

I think the projected numbers are nice, especially since he's third base eligible in yahoo leagues.

I think the difference is that Bautista's power could be a fluke. He's never even put up a 30hr season in the minors. People don't know what to think on his power and the average kills you...if you're going to take that hit in average you want a sure thing when it comes to the power. With a pro-rated to 550ab 38-hr season in 2003 and two straight 40-hr seasons after that Dunn's about as close as you come to a sure thing 40-hr guy.
