    Big trade with Pujols

    You give an edge to Pedroia over Kinsler? Are you serious?

    Pedroia had 135 more at bats than kinsler last season yet only managed 16 more Runs, 1 less HR, 12 more RBIs. he had a slightly better average but their on base % were all most identical. Kinsler beats Pedroia in R/AB RBI/AB HR/AB. Kinsler also stole 6 more bases in 135 less at bast. This si not even a comparison. Pedroia is overvalued because he is a Red Sox.

    Kinsler also plays in a great younf line up that is getting better and he plays half his games in the best hitters park in the game.

    • but the fact remains Pedroia still played more games if a guy is injury prone and cant stay on the field he loses some value believe me i am a Yankee fan and it kills me to say that a Red Sox is good but i gotta give credit where credit is due the man didnt win MVP just because he is a Red Sox

      • First, he did win MVP because he was a Red Sox, there were a lot more deserving AL players than him last season.

        Kinsler can not be classified as injury prone yet. I know he has missed some time each of the last 3 seasons but until this one it was minor injuries. Plenty of players miss time every year. Pujols missed extended time in 2 of the past 3 years, is he injury prone? No, of course not. These guys are pros, they are going to miss time. Pedroia is going to get hurt in his career more then once and it may be this year, you never know. You cannot value guys based on that.

        Even the "experts" at yahoo have Kinsler ranked as the #1 2B in fanasty and Pedroia at #3.
