Chavez vs. Lowell?

Postby Baseballer02 » Fri Mar 12, 2004 2:02 am

Who should have the better season this year? How much will Lowell's injury bother him this season? I'm thinking of trading Lowell and Milton Bradley for Chavez is why I'm wonderin.

Non keeper league consider sticking with Lowell. Keeper league Chavez no brainer. I would advise you to go with Chavez in a yearly league but I'm an Oakland fan and dont want my bias to cloud this one.

I like Chavez. He becomes the go-to guy in Oakland and he can hit. Now if only he could hit lefties better...

I'd take Lowell because he'll probably be better. Don't give up another player, especially Game Boy, along with him for somebody who will probably do worse.

Lowell has always been a doubles hitter who last year started turning them into homers. In far less games he put up comparable stats to Chavez, and now Chavez has nobody else in his lineup. He can't hit lefties and righties will pitch around him. The only true 3B last year to go 30/100: Lowell, in 130 games. He should also hit around .280, which is good for a 3B.

I don't know why Rolen and Chavez seem to be the clear cut 1-2 ranked 3B's. Lowell could very well be #1 this season (excluding A-Rod).

easy because lowell had an breakout year last year thats why and this year he should drop down to about 22 hrs due to the reoccuring injury going off and on again.

I'd take Chavez over Lowell. I think he'll have better numbers all around. Plus there is no injury factor. Bottom line is that if Lowell was totally healthy I'd still take Chavez.

Not to mention you can bank on 8 steals from Chavez. Small, but every little bit helps, no?

Edit: I wouldn't, however, trade Bradley and Lowell for Chavez.

If this was a month ago I'd take Lowell easily but he's being haunted by some elbow and/or other injuries which turns me off :-/
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
