Glenn Murray Vs. Justin Maxwell
Murray Mle numbers (best season): 19 hr, .195 BA, .226 OBP, .375 SLG
Maxwell Mle Numbers (best season): 17 hr, .213 BA, .264 OBP, .373 SLG
Murray has the slightest of edges in power, but Maxwell wins out on BA and OBP and has a higher OPS, especially weighted toward OBP.
Chris Schwab Vs. Frank Diaz
Schwab Mle numbers (best season): 5 hr, .194 BA, .250 OBP, .312 SLG
Diaz Mle Numbers (best season): 10 hr, .230 BA, .246 OBP, .349 SLG
The OBP is close, but Diaz has a clear advantage in BA and SLG. I think this one’s obvious.
Josh McKinley Vs. Kory Casto
McKinley Mle numbers (best season): 11 hr, .203 BA, .261 OBP, .315 SLG
Casto Mle Numbers (best season): 14 hr, .217 BA, .289 OBP, .361 SLG
Clear-cut victor here. Casto’s numbers are better in every category.
Nelson Santovenia Vs. Erick San Pedro
Santovenia Mle numbers (best season): 14 hr, .231 BA, .290 OBP, .369 SLG
San Pedro Mle Numbers (best season): 0 hr, .138 BA, .172 OBP, .181 SLG
When I said San Pedro was terrible, I meant it. Santovenia keeps the Nationals from sweeping this entry.
I was surprised that the Nationals overall won in the outfield, but when I think about it, most of the great Expos outfield prospects actually made an impact in the majors, so the chaff wasn’t that great. Here’s how things are shaping up now:
So, let’s look at how our combined team’s infield is shaping up:
- 1B: Larry Broadway
- 2B: Henry Mateo
- SS: Hiram Bocachica
- 3B: Boi Rodriguez
- C: Nelson Santovenia
- OF: Justin Maxwell
- OF: Frank Diaz
- OF: Kory Casto
So we’re all tied up with four representatives each. Tomorrow we’ll finish things off with the pitchers and look at our franchise all-bust team.
