    Re: the annual sox/yanks comparison

    Comparing the offensive attributes of two players based on their defensive position is kind of silly.  Just because 2 guys both play shortstop does not mean they will be relied on equally in the lineup.

     

    Is Derek Jeter a better hittter than Stephen Drew?   Yes, and he had better be, since the Yankees will be counting on Jeter at leadoff, whereas Drew will be hitting somewhere in the 7-8-9 range.

     

    A better idea should be linuep up postion. he problem is, who knows the lineups yet?  But we cal guess.   and if I had to guess the lineups and which player would have the better year, I would guess as follows.

     

    Leadoff: Ellsbury / Jeter

     

    Second: Pedroia / Gardner

     

    Third: Ortiz / Teixeira

     

    Fourth: Napoli / Cano

     

    Fifth: Middlebrooks / Granderson

     

    Sixth: Saltalamacchia / Hafner

     

    Seventh: Victorino /  Youkilis

     

    Eighth: Nava, Sweeney & Gomes / Suzuki

     

    Ninth: Drew / Cervelli

     

    So the Sox win 5-4, but not all batting order spots are equal. 3 of the Sox better spots were 7-8-9, so calling it a flat out win is a little hollow.  Especially with the Yankees taking every spot from 3 thru 6.

     

    I can call it a draw...
