I think you're proving my point. ;)

Does Russell have his good points? Undoubtedly, and guys like Stuckey and Sherril can play at a similar level. You'll get some reasonable seasons out of them, and some less so.

Stuckey's batting profile might look like this: 16/10/10/14.
Sherrill: 16/8/8/17.

Russell is the ceiling for guys like that with low BC and PD. Russell has good health (doesn't miss many games), is a 4-time All Star with excellent hitting and power tools. At best he's a 20-homer guy who hits .280, which certainly has value (if you have nothing else).

But I look at the other side of the coin. A career .318 OBP and .778 OPS is just average for a 1B (IMO). Plus (and worst of all for me) he's a groundball machine, hence all the GIDP which hurt your team offence. I don't like that at all. Stuckey is a similar player and while Sherrill is a flyball hitter with good minor league numbers that BC/PD isn't going to play in the majors, at least not over an extended period.

Also, compare Russell's career slash line to OG's:-

Russell: .279/.318/.460, .778 OPS
Gonzalez: .296/.362/.577, .938 OPS

Which would you rather have? I'll take the latter, with the 0.50 GB:FB rate and the walks and the 40-homer seasons every single time.

De Lucia's current SI doesn't bother me at all (I've got Quintana and his 78 SI up for good) - the fact is he's developed at a positive and steady rate throughout his career to this point, about 6 SI/season. If he plays full-time on reaching the bigs that may actually improve, and a few seasons from now you'll have a guy with a hitting profile that may look like this: 18/18/8/14. I'm not a fan of hitters with low PD but that high BC certainly plays a lot better than your other prospects mentioned here.

Un'altra cosa, per le mia lista di battitori utilizzo questa pagina ha un senso?

Altra cosa quali statistiche difensive prendi come riferimento per uun giocatore?

I agree about Gonzalez 100%, I guess I should've mentioned that. He is without a doubt the guy you should play right now.

wuggla - Strange things happen in the Cup! In our last series we suffered a three-hit shutout to a guy with a career 5.40 ERA, and split the series against the team ranked #627.

But hopefully not 0-4 strange. ;)

Thanks Raven!
Facts are friendly as my old boss used to say; he was right too!

I have 2 players wearing the same jersey #.

Lafferty and Horn both have #41.

Lafferty had it first. Horn is a new-style draft pick.

Maybe amateur numbers aren't being checked against the roster?
