in the last 3 years Swisher has 76 HRs to Choos 46, Swisher has 99 Doubles to Choos 85, Swisher had 230 Walks to Choos 192, and Swisher has had the same or better WAR 2 of those 3 years, and Swisher actually stays healthy, offensive wise Swisher was a HUGE upgrade and its not even close really
Same with Hafner and Reynolds, last 3 years Reynolds has 82 HRs to Hafners 38, 70 Doubles to Hafners 51 and again he stays healthy, so thats another HUGE upgrade, i mean if you cant see a almost 50 HR diffrence isn't incredibly significant then idk what to tell you other then you more then likley cant even spell the word baseball let alone should be talking about it
what about adding Bourn over Damon/Carerra/Cunningham?
or Chisenhall over Hannahan?
but its clear you just wanted to troll and get owned while looking like a fool in the process, and thats fine, but do some research next time chump
A healthy Shin Soo Choo is an .875 to .900 OPS guy. Swisher is a pretty good .825 guy. Choo is a better defender and a better baseruner. At best it's a wash because io Choo's health status.
Reynolds last three seasons, .753, .806, .763. Pretty pedestrian for a one trick pony with no defensive or situational skills. Hafner has put-up .824, .811, .784. Not a world beater either for an offensive specialist. Hafner misses time, so Reynolds makes up for his lessser performance by probably being better than the bech guy who play's when Hafner doesn't. Wash IMO.
Bourn, as I acknowledged, is an upgrade, but speed guys on the wrong side of 30 don't excite me and apparantly the GMS around baseball who kept backing off from him agree for the most part.
I like Chisenhall's potential. We'll see about him.
You guys are playing Drew Stubbs in an OF corner and he's easily the best option at this point. I can't think of a bigger indictment of a team's offensive potential.
As for the troll stuff, I've been here for 7 years, have over 12000 posts and no one has ever accused me of that before. You have 9 posts and go on a rant. If you insist in going to the stats, that's a pretty good one to study IMO.
