Re: What do you think it would cost to get Ruggiano from the Marlins?
Career vs. RHP
Heisey (.770 OPS), 29 years old
Ruggiano (.756 OPS), 31 years old
Ruggiano's OPS is largely colored by that .401 BABIP last season.
I sense people are just grasping at straws right now. Now, I will say, Ruggiano does clearly hit the ball better against left-handed pitching than does Heisey. But overall, he's not really any better an option.
