[QUOTE]Because Prado is 28 years old and coming into his prime. Ross is 31 in December.
Finally, you actually answered a question with something reasonable.
I'm not wanting to sign Ross until he is 36.
Prado has a career .341 OBP and a career .774 OPS vs LHPs.
Prado is noted for getting big hits late in games throughout his Braves career. He had a career .308 with RISP and .332 with men on base and most important .332 with RISP and 2 outs. OUTSTANDING numbers.
Maybe you should recheck your numbers.
I found .290 with RISP (below his overall .293 number) with a .730 OPS
.287 with RISP and 2 outs (.750 OPS). Not bad, but not "outstanding".
He has a .726 OPS "Late and Close" and .743 high leverage.
Cody Ross would be a cheap FA. No trade is needed.
His career OBP is .323 (.018 below Prado).
His career OPS is .779.
His career OPS with RISP: .861
His career OPS with RISP & 2 outs: .841.
Late & Close:.808 and .838 high leverage.
A lot better than "hillbilly Josh" and also better than city pone Prado.
In short, oh boring one, he's a far better fit with a bigger upside. By the way, do you have a picture of you, with Cody Ross and Adam Dunn in your home?
Who's in your picture? You never make any suggestions on your own: your sole actions here are bashing everyone's ideas without anything offered in return.
