Re: More talent: Reds or Cardinals?
Cozart had a 2.3 WAR last year, had 52 extra base hits, and a.687 OPS.
Kozma had trouble maintaining a .600 OPS at AAA over the last 2 years. He's barely above .600 this year. And he's not even close to Cozart's league as a defender. Cozart was a gold glove finalist last year.
Even with Cozart's BABIP of .198 this year, he's close to Kozma's OPS lever this year.
Cozart may have his problems, but defence and being better than Kozma aren't on that list.
