Re: Trout, Hamilton, Pujols, Trumbo
You cherry picked 4 years if you went 5 or 3 or less Choo loses, You bypass the year Choo misses with injury getting TJ and go to Hamilton's year he missed time with the ab injury.
647/2814 for Josh
634/2745 for Choo
402/1745 for Josh
384/1690 for Choo
I think you're cherry picking stats more, Choo wasn't a regular until 2009. Hamilton is also 13 + months older and the Angels have committed 5 year/ $125 mil
The Reds are committing about $5 mil to Choo (including money coming from Cle)
My simple calculation using Baseball Reference:
Josh Hamilton 6 Years of Service, 3151 PA, 23.3 WAR
525.2 PA/Year of Service, 3.88 WAR/ Year of Service
Sin Shoo Choo 5.119 Years of Service, 2965 PA, 19.9 WAR
581.4 PA/ Years of Service, 3.89 WAR/ Year of Service
He wasn't but you can't knock another teams move calling out a players durability and then still like ours when he has the same questions and isn't as good of a player, not a CF and our league doesn't have a DH if he gets banged up.
Performance wise they're similair if not equal, but we've invested much much less.
