Its kinda like when A-Rod was drafted by the Mariners. if you asked the majority who would be a better SS him or Jeter, most would say Jeter because he had a .314 average and 70 plus RBI in his rookie year and A-Rod was one year behind. But A-Rod was two years younger and coming right out of High School, which now looking back, meant alot.
So you couldn't help but agree with what was on the table, compared to what you have not seen, and we saw how that worked out. (Though thats a weak example, when A-Rod has no rings and Jeter does =) )
So thats what I am going on, I could be totally wrong, but I'm just going on previous years then future
