    anyone else look at carlos guillen and say to themselves “he is basically derek jeter” they may play the same position with the same weaknesses and strengths except that guillen is a late bloomer from a smaller market who also switch hits. Before he signed his extension with detroit this past off season i was praying we’d replace alex with him. I know, I know, he isnt nearly the offensive beast that arod is but hes just soo sound (caught stealing aside). hes cluch. just a smooth solid player.

    Guillen may have the emptiest .300 AVG in the baseball. Grossly over-rated player.

    Gootta love that Eric Gagne, Very good man

  4. Barry says:

    I don’t know if you’ve heard yet, Gagne just blew another one. Lovin’ it.

    i dont agree that he’s derek jeter, but how can you say his .300 avg is empty? he has a .157 ISO, walks 9.3% of the time this year (9.7% career). when he’s healthy he is a very good offensive shortstop… defensively, not so much

    Let’s Compare Derek Jeter and Carlos Guillen…

    Jeter’s EqA/WARP1: .286 and 5.9.

    Guillen’s EqA/WARP1: .292 and 3.5.

    FRAA likes Jeter more, but I don’t think he’s any better today than he was 5 years ago defensively.

    ok mike… i hafta disagree:

    305/47 xbh/ 879 ops

    323/40 xbh/ 834 ops

    Kinda looks like Jetes (and i love Jeter) 323 is far emptier than Guillen’s 305, no?

  8. Marc says:

    wanna see an empty 347? how about ichiro’s 27xbh and 827 ops
