    Kinsler or Zobrist?

    Categories include - runs, hits, doubles, triples, hr, rbi, steals, bb, avg, obp, slugg, and plate appearances

    so who do you like the rest of the way and why?

    • Go with Kinsler.

      Both plate apperances will be similar batting in the 3-hole on great teams. Most of these hitting categories favor power numbers and xtra base hits (2B, 3B, HR, RBI, SLUG). And Kinsler is an extra base hit machine notching 41 doubles in 08 and 32 last season along with 31 HR last season. Kinsler will not hit 31HR, but 20+HR and 35+ double is very nice power to proide at thin 2B position. Add onto it that Kinsler ankle looks much better as he has stolen 3 bags in the last week and should outperform Zobrist here as well. Zobrist is not a power a hitter andhis 27 HR were a fluke he is serviceable as SS, but cannot compete with Kinsler. Zoobs also has gone a month without a SB at one point so he doesnot have elite speed.

    • Give: Casey Mcgahee, Adam Lind, Miguel Olivio, Matt Holiday and Tommy Hanson

      Get: Matt holliday and Yovanni Gallard

      I need an OF upgrade, and the other guy needs a C and 3B. Do it? No? Why?

      • I dont know how Matt Holliday can be on both parts of the deal, but I'll assume you get him and not trade him. Gallardo and Hanson are very similiar pitchers with elite stuff. Hanson is strugglign now but will turn it around. Holliday is much better than the garbage left on the table. Most if not all of those guys should be on waivers.

    • Kinsler
