I still like Matsui...on top of being a stand up guy.....dependable hitter in the toughest of times....plus the "collection" gets him extra points in my book.....

lets look at some stats

J.D. Drew vs. H. Matsui

Contracts
J.D. Drew 5/70 14M/yr
H. Matsui 4/52 13M/yr

2003-2006 Prime of Both Careers
Best yr: in major categories

J.D
. Drew 2004 avg. 0.305 HR 31 RBI 93 OBP 0.412
H. Matsui 2004 0.298 HR 31 RBI 108 OBP 0.390

Avg numbers over this time

J.D. Drew 0.290 HR 81 RBI 271 OBP 0.408
H. Matsui 0.298 HR 78 RBI 359 OBP
0.375

Matsui missed most of 2006 with a busted wrist

J.D. Drew missed most of every season with something

Actually the ABs for the same time span....

J.D. Drew 1551
H. Matsui 2008

Why are we comparing Matsui to Drew? Wouldn't it be Manny vs. Matsui and Abreu vs. Drew, if we have to do any comparison?

Point taken...its not about position v position but rather an unexpected similarity I have not noticed before.....If they indeed end up moving Manny (which I think they will not)..........It would be like if the only slugger the Yankees had was AROD and we were shouting look everyone we now have Matsui to protect him.....I love matsui..but would agree that we would need more than that to survive.....luckily we are not in that position....

A-Rod is a slugger? LOL..

I guess when there are no runners on and we're ahead in the game, yes. :-) Sorry, i just had to. Sometimes I just can't stand A-Rod. I supported him for a long time (long, arduous, painful time), but it just got to be too much toward the end of last year. He is a mental case and can't perform under pressure. He presses and thinks way too much.

Check A-Rod's numbers with RISP, RISP 2/outs, and how many times he drove in the go-ahead run, and how many go ahead runs in the 7th inning he had. (The latter 2, he was in the top 3 in the majors.)

Jonah: Out of curiosity, did you watch that man play all last year? Do you watch every Yankee game, or at least many of them?

I agree, a Drew-Abreu comparison is probably more relevant. They are actually very similar players.


Abreu (career): .302 / .412 / .507 / .919


Drew (career): .286 / .393 / .512 / .904


I would give Drew the advantage in defense, and their baserunning skills are about even. Considering the vast advantage in durability however, I would say Abreu is the better value.

What's with your man crushes on Randy and Arod? Can you admit they at least had sub-par years by their standards?

Absolutely, Ben. Good question.

Stats don't tell the whole story, anyone who watched most of the games last year knows that ARod was horrible in the clutch,he was frustrating to watch at best. I want ARod to be our 3rd baseman for the next 5 years at least so I'm not an ARod basher, just someone who knows what he sees... I hope he has a monster year in '07....
