I just want to copy this verbatim from an email my fiance sent me:
Let’s do this Neyer-style:
427 PA: .229/.278/.277, 1 HR, 36 RBI, .047 ISO, .270 BABIP
421 PA: .236/.282/.359, 8 HR, 35 RBI, .123 ISO,.267 BABIP
Obviously Red 1 is giving you very little in the way of anything, and
while we might expect him to get a little better looking at that
BABIP, Red 2 is in about the same boat. Maybe even moreso, considering
that harder-hit balls are going to tend to fall in more. To be fair,
Red 1 is a probably little faster, having stole 6 in 8 attempts, while
Red 2 got caught in his only attempt. Obviously, you don’t love having
to play either of these guys on a team in the middle of a pennant
race, but if you have the choice, you take Red 2, assuming they play
the same position.
Unfortunately, they do not. Red 1 is an aggregate of Paul Janish and
Edgar Renteria in 2011. Red 2 is Dontrelle Willis’ career line.
