Re: Would you trade Ryan Freel?
I'd do Freel for Vazquez in a heartbeat. Ramirez just doesn't miss enough bats for my taste (I think he'd get beat around here). Vazquez misses bats and was BABIP unlucky this year. The Cell plays similarly to GABP, so I wouldn't be extra worried about homers.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
