In response to snakeoil123's comment:
Pedro and Aviles are not nearly as good as Pedroia. Any point that you were trying to make went right out the window when you started using that kind of hyperbole.
He had an off year and still hit 290 with 15 homers and 20 steals and played great D.
He also doesn't make real big money.
So he liked Francona and hated Valentine. If you want to get rid of him for that you would have to get rid of the whole team.
PC hit for higher avg and had just 4 less steals in 60 games less...is that hyperbole? the difference in home runs and rbis between MA and DP could be counted on one hand...i didnt realize that we had two MVPs in the infield!
You are absolutely correct. Ciriaco hit for a higher average by ...
Wait for it ...
THREE WHOLE POINTS.
Now be a good boy and go bury your head in the sand and ignore the fact that Pedroia's OBP was 32 points higher, his slugging was 59 points higher, his OPS was 92 points higher.
Pedro played about half the year, so if you double his numbers, which would have given him 11 more games played than Pedria, Pedey still would have had 15 more runs scored, nine more doubles, 11 more home runs and 22 more RBIs.
Ciriaco would have had one more triple and 12 more stolen bases -- Yippee.
You should be embarrassed for comparing Ciriaco to Pedroia. How pathetic.
As for Aviles, fine -- his and Pedey's home runs and RBIs were close. Pedey still had more AND, Pedey had 24 more runs scored, 11 more doubles, three more triples, 40 points higher BA, 65 points higher OBP, 68 points higher SLG and 134 points higher OPS.
Another ridiculous comparison.
