Having just seen the Sox doispatch the "mighty Dodgers", I thought I'd do a little comapring, just for hahas
Check out these numbers.
Carp 8 HR 31 RBI in 176 ABs 307/362/551
Nava 10/56 in 370 292/379/430
Victorino 11/49 in 394 292/379/430
Puig 13/30 in 289 346/406/557
Crawford 5/25 in 351 285/336/405
Ethier 10/47 in 437 275/360/414
Kemp 5/27 in 228 263/319/382
Carp and Puig are interesting. they are basically the same in RBIs and Puig has a few more HRs, but he has also been up 113 more times. Carp is perfectly fine to be a PH and sometimes starter. Can we say the same for Puig.
Nava/Crawford is interesting as well. Roughly the same ABs and Nava has double the HRs and RBIs. With Ethier, he has 60 less ABs and 9 more more RBIs. Victorino is pretty much a wash with Ethier in 50 less ABs, but then come the intangibles.
I know Kemo has been injured but with 228 ABs, he still has 50 more ABs than Carp, with slightly less HRs and RBIs.
I won't even get into the salaries.
