The difference between Polanco and HRod is Polanco is a plus defender. He was an asset in the field, not just adequate. With the bat, the obvious difference is that HRod is a switch hitter and Polanco is not. Aside from those two quibbles, I could see Polanco being at the upper end of HRod's projection.
