    Which player do you predict will have a better season, and a higher WAR?

    Kind of a strange comparison unless there's a point you're trying to make.  Are you making a prediction yourself to kick things off?

    Too bad Loney played like a stiff for us last year.  A .574 OPS for a first baseman is not going to make many teams salivate about re-signing him.

    That, and I dont see a need to platoon Naps. He has had nothing wrong with him at all related to that hip.

    In response to softlaw2's comment:

    It wasn't an either/or. The Red Sox could have extended Loney for about 2M, then signed Napoli and had an outstanding compliment and cut down Napoli's work load for the entire season. The notion that they need someone like Carp because he can stand in LF is utterly absurd.



    This is beyond silly, Carp has been the prefect bench player for the Sox. Big hit after big hit, can play the outfield. Loney was looking to start, he wouldn't have been willing to take less money to sit on a bench. Loney's lack of versatility would have greatly hurt the Sox. What more does Carp have to do to make you say you were wrong?

    Loney vs Napoli is easily Napoli.  Look at the disparity in their career numbers.  Loney is having a career year.  Napoli is right in line with career averages.

    Loney vs Carp is a tougher decision.

    Who cares? No one wanted Loney back last year, did you? Besides, an easy answer, Napoli.

    8 HR, 39 RBI vs. 4 HR, 24 RBI.

    Napoli shouldn't be more than a part-timer. He's terrible on defense and is more of a pinch hitter and matchup v. certain starting pitchers and pen arms guy.



    Absurd.  Napoli is 4th in the league in extra-base hits and 6th in RBI!

    Man are some answers here so dumb. Loney is a better defender, and is having a better season... There's more to baseball than homeruns...

    How many games would Loney have won for the Red Sox so far, based on his lack of production? Who would have knocked him in after he got a single, Will Middlebrooks?

    Your response is probably the dumbest one out here.

    Napoli doesn't have the physical constituion to be more than a season long part-timer. In addition, he's a liability on defense. His role should be pinch hitter and starts against the better recent match-up histories. His year end totals will suffer in the role he's currently in.



    Time will tell whether his hip holds up.  But, at this juncture, it seems playing first base everyday is not physically problematic.  Defensive liability?  Nah.  He has played a surprisingly good first base.

    So this stats don't matter because you made up your mind?

    By the end of the year Loney will be hitting 270 and will have 10 home runs.  We all know it. Why even talk about it?

    And, of course, you were complaining about the Sox not resigning Loney back in Dec, right?

     

    Sure you were....

    I agree with you.   Laughing

    Loney is just comfortable right now playing in front of 20 fans at Tropicana Field.   LOL
