But, if that's the entirety of your thinking (how owned a player is) than it doesn't mean much to me.
Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if Maybin was the most valuable of all of that bunch in fbb for the entire 2013 season. I'm not saying he will be but just that I wouldn't be surprised.
Taveras = Vlad 2.0? Doubt it. Vlad was a 5 tool guy, Taveras is more of a 4 - 4 1/2 tool guy.
Myers = Bruce 2.0? Maybe
Puig? If he's lucky maybe another Soriano.
Bradley? Pagan? Now, THAT'S the kind of guy AD likes.
Lastly, I'd rather have Marte than Brown.
Yeah, the only thing that matters to me is how owned a player is.
