    I thought I had more Giants fans on my side than that. Oh well

    Would you trust a blind scout? Of course you wouldn't but that's what you do when you simply go by stats

    Only one person doesn't understand the ignore list. Predictable and cowardly

    You wanted Cain in the trade instead of Cabrera though But in all seriousness I have been defending this trade since the day it happened against many giants fans....but they are starting to come around now

    Ethier can't hit lefties, but when he faces righties he is extremely valuable.

    I'm taking Melky

    Ethier is easily better defensively

    But over the last two seasons

    AE: .302/.373/.463, .359 wOBA, 129 wRC+, 5.3 fWAR, 4.7 rWAR, 770 PA
    MC: .322/.358/.490, .366 wOBA, 130 wRC+, 6.6 fWAR, 6.7 rWAR, 942 PA

    I'll take Melky who has been the better hitter the last season and a half. Ethier is better defensively, but Melky's defense looks worse from his time in center, a position he shouldn't play. The offense is there for Melky, and he doesn't have a weakness of not being able to hit lefties.

    Ethier did miss some time last season, as well, that should be noted in the WAR conversation.

    AE - 163.83 PA per rWAR, 145.28 PA per fWAR
    MC - 140.59 PA per rWAR, 142.73 PA per fWAR over the last two seasons.

    It's a fair comparison, and I'll give the edge to Cabrera.

    Ethier has a much better track record. But, Melky's 2011-2012 has been very strong. Melky is a couple years younger and would be cheaper to sign. If you believe in Melky's last ~ 1 1/3 seasons, I could see talking yourself into him if your team is on a tighter budget.

    Really?


    AE: .302/.373/.463, .359 wOBA, 129 wRC+, 5.3 fWAR, 4.7 rWAR, 770 PA
    MC: .322/.358/.490, .366 wOBA, 130 wRC+, 6.6 fWAR, 6.7 rWAR, 942 PA



    Is it because is a popular player who garners media attention?

    Is it because your a Dodger fan?

    Or are you basing this on the actual production of each player?

    Ethier has all of 80 at bats this season vs lefties.

    Hitting a robust .313/.378/.475 with a .431 babip in 80 at bats.

    In his career, .249/.309/.369 - 869 at bats.


    If he can sustain his production against lefties that he has had thus far this season, then maybe his overall production will remain at a high level, allowing him to be the superior player here. I don't expect any .431 babip to sustain though, especially for a player with a history of failure against lefties.

    But 80 at bats is going to be difficult to say is an accurate sample size
