I was looking at Waring’s stats:
[table id=21 /]
Then I looked a Yonder Alonso’s stats:
[table id=22 /]
Yonder’s a year younger, but his numbers aren’t much better..and he’s already on the 40 man and MUCH more expensive. In addition, Turner is a borderline major leaguer right now.
I suppose this is somewhat unfair; I guess I’m just curious as to what people make of the comparison of Waring and Alonso’s numbers. (I was pretty surprised when I looked at them). Plus, when you compare the two, you have to take into consideration some of the other factors that could make Alonso a roster problem (next year?). Especially when you factor in giving away Turner and the questionable value of Hernandez (and his cost).
What do you think? I just thought it was interesting and might be worthy of some discussion.
