As for Cozart vs. Kozma, the question isn't whose doing better right now. That's a boring question that can be answered by simply looking at their baseball-reference pages. The question is who has has more talent. Which roster is likely to help produce more wins for their team over a 162 game schedule.
Comparing the talent levels of Cozart vs. Kozma, this is the most revealing stat to me:
Kozma's best minor league numbers aren't as good as what Cozart already produced in the majors last year.
Considering that Cozart produced an OPS+ of 80 last season, I think the bar is pretty low for Kozma to match that on the major league level this year. To me, this argument is a push considering that we don't know what kind of production we will see from Kozma in a full year and we are still waiting for that talent level of Cozart to show. Right now, we are making arguments pro this guy or con this guy based off of incomplete pictures. That's why I think ultimately it's a push right now.
