Re: Brad Wilkerson vs. Corey Patterson
Personally, I like Brad Wilkerson more than Corey Patterson. This current season's slump aside, I think Wilkerson is a much better hitter -- better batting eye, fewer holes in his swing.
I think Patterson is an Adrian Beltre type -- he shows flashes of brilliance and makes you think he's the next big thing, then you end up suffering through 4 years of slumps waiting for that breakout season.
It's a classic choice -- the solid, less flashy option vs. the high risk/high reward option. In the long run, I think Wilkerson will have better stats all around than Patterson.
