You have a potential for a very low BA, especially if you get Greene. Loney, Upton, and Kemp had very high BABIPs last year and you cannot expect anything over .300, and maybe .290 at the highest. You are going to win SB in this lineup. It might be worth it to deal Crawford for a power top OF bat and keep Jeter. This way you won't take a bigger hit with AVG. You get a lot more HR and RBI. You also deal from a position of strength in SB. in H2H, steals aren't as important because anyone could have a lucky week. Power guys will generally contribute more consistently.
Using 2007 statistics, my average is tops or close to it in the league. My strengths are obviously Avg, Runs and SB.
