Here's one that I hope sparks some great discussion over the phyilsophy of building a line up.
I'm not quite sure how to phrase the question so bare with me. You are the NL manager and the GM comes into your office. You have the choice of trading for a consistant hitter who always puts up a high average, gets on base and constantly puts the ball into play. The other player you could trade for is a pure slugger who can hit the ball with power but can be streaky and K's a fair amount.
I know it might be hard to answer this without considering the rest of the line up, but the heart of the question is what do you like better in a hitter....consistancy or power?
