Pierre went for $25 in our draft, and with his avg, runs, and steals, he'll probably earn about that much. So I'd say 20 is a decent price for him.

Not a bad question at all. Crawford is young and his #'s are expected to increase. He's projected to hit more HR's, AVG inc, and steals st the same.

For Pods, many feel that his .300 AVG was more of a one year thing. He batter .244 last year absolutely killing AVG, and he had all of 39 RBI, though he did have double digit HRs.

So anyway, Crawford is above avg in 3 cats (AVG, R, SB) and Pods in about 2... that's my take anyway.
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Concern for the 'one-year wonder' factor. Pods was a late bloomer after a long and undistinguished minor-league career before busting out in '03. Last year, although he stole plenty and displayed the occasional pop, his BA and OBA tumbled precipitously.

Crawford, on the other hand, is a young kid whose numbers match or exceed Podsednik's ... and are only going to go up.

20 bucks seems like a decent price for him ;-D

I think the $20-$22 range is good value for him.... :-)

Like Cornbread...I'd like to know what Pods went at too... :-)
