    Image too big.

    Also, the Fans projections for Carp are a little ridiculous.

    Agree with Jon on the fan projections. .370 OBP, .800 OPS? Maybe at some point in his career, but not in 2010. Also, you know, ~10-15 run difference in defense.

    Thanks, buddy…

    Jon, the point of this post was that though the two are very similar offensively, Kotchman’s defense adds a significant amount of value to the M’s. I would have thought you would get this.

    Oh I wasn’t saying that with regards to the post.. more of an aside. I definitely get what you’re trying to say. Me, a few days ago:

    “Isn’t Mike Carp basically Kotchman without the defense?

    Answer: that’s exactly what he is. And it seems like a reasonable reaction at first, but really, if you have two identical hitters, one led baseball in 1B UZR last season and the other is a poor defender, who would you prefer? “

    Admittedly, I probably should have said this in the body of the post. But hey, it’s an exercise in implications!
