    I'm just wondering when Choo and Cabrera are going to the Yankees or Red Sox.

    Pretty refreshing. Very rarely do Sports radio people say their own team stinks.

    Drennan going off on the only sport that it's worth listening to him talk about. That rant on Branyon was priceless.

    This is the first time in a long time that I have actually enjoyed listening to what Bruce had to say. Hilarious take on Branyan.

    But hes just as good as Victor fellas!!!! :rofl:

    Victor Martinez: .242/.306/.323/.629

    Russell Branyan: .212/.278/.303/.581

    At least one can blame a bad back. :D

    Even on a terrible start for Victor, he is still hitting .30 points higher than Branyan. :chuckles:

    Thanks for proving my point.

    Let's not even mention the fact that Victor, you know, has an actual TRACK RECORD of hitting .300.

    Stupid people. sigh.

    Victor Martinez's career OPS (3345 career ABs): .823

    Russell Branyan's career OPS (2464 career ABs): .819

    Looks like a track record to me, alright. :D

    Of course, none of this is relevant- the original argument was correct: last year, both players were very similar in their overall production. And if both players where healthy, they would probably be about the same again this year. Unfortunately, Branyan isn't, and Victor... well we don't know why Victor is playing so awful. What I DO know is that the Tribe paying 3M for Branyan's injury-induced awfulness, while the BoSox are paying 7.7M plus 3 pitching prospects.

    :D

    Now that we've established that Victor Martinez are Russell Branyan are both equally good players..

    Ignorance sure is bliss for some.

    Anyway, Good job Bruce. He sufficiently summed up my feelings.

    No one with a brain would argue that Victor is as valuable or less valuable as Branyan...for now.

    At Catcher, Victor is a great, great player. At first, Victor is an average hitter, average defense and has well below average power for a 1st baseman.

    Productivity and value are two different things. I'd rather have Victor than Marson, but I see no need to pine for Victor to play first base. Which is why we should have gotten something for him while we could, before he is strictly just a first baseman and he loses a shit ton of value.

    And batting average is solely based upon hitting...using OBP and SLUG gives you a real value of a hitter.

    If a hitter is a .300 hitter and only hits singles, is he more valuable than a .275 hitter who is constantly racking up XBH because he has an extra .025 on the other guy?

    I agree..i thought you were being sarcastic with your last post lol, my bad.

    I don't want to sign Victor just to put him at first obviously. What I DO find funny is he'd probably be better than our 1B we trot out there most years.

    That is entirely dependent upon who pans out. If LaPorta or Mills or even Hodges becomes a successful 1st baseman, I will not miss Victor.
