The main thing that Stunts Gonzalez is the pitchers park he plays in and the horrible lineup around him.
The difference is really negligible, they're virtually the same player across the board.

His BA has been declining the last 3 years...not by much but it's still something to speculate on.

His OBP is the one bright spot that he has improved on. That goes with the career high 119 walks. But there is a very good reason for that. You all said it. His team sucks. Nobody in their right mind pitches to this guy.

It is absurd to think that someone improved from 60,70, to 119 walks. Yes he has good discipline, however he benefited from his teammates big time there.

Also, Derrek is probably faster, maybe a better baserunner, maybe better bunting, maybe better arm strength and accuracy. Do you guys get my point? He isn't rated higher cause he's a better hitter and defender, he's rated higher cause his overall game is probably more rounded out than Adrians. And yes some fat guys like Pujols and Tex are good base runners. And Fielders bat makes up big time for his lack of speed and base running.
Maybe his lack of RBI has to do with guys not being on?

ahhh....was there any doubt at who would be #1?

Looking forward to another franchise with Albert Pujols.

Justin Morneau is a top-10 first baseman. No if's, and's or but's about it. Once again I will have to edit some attributes to reflect that. Never any love for the Twins outside of Mauer.

edit: I guess I mis-counted, he could be number 10...but I still think he should be higher on that list.

I agree with this, he deserves to be above Berkman, maybe even the overrated Youikilis.

Why?
Seeing...99...99...99..99..99 is so much better?
If anything....numbers are ridiculous.
Both are IMO...but who would go by stats and scouting reports only?..oh ...yeah...THE REAL MLB.

I don't really care whether overall was illustrated by bar or numbers as I don't look at them. I look at the actual ratings breakdown when assessing a player and whether or not to go through with the particular transaction I'm thinking about with him.

Two 99 overall rated players aren't the same player.

RBIs is a stupid way to measure a player's ability. Hmm, he also had a spike in walks as well and for most of the seasons was arguably the only feared hitter in the lineup.

Is a .005 drop over three years really substantial? That is literally a difference of a couple of hits.

And thus you shouldn't hold RBIs against him.

Aside from speed and being a better base-runner (or base-stealer would be more appropriate), it really is a wash offensively... maybe Adrian should get the nod considering how drastic the home and road splits are.

However, we're talking about one or two point differences that can explain the differences in overall. As a matter of fact, to me it appears that Berkman, Lee, and Gonzalez all have the same overall.

Edit: Sox fans, Youk is rated higher than Adrian, you guys don't need to trade for him anymore.

Edit 2: At least I can confirm that Adrian is a straight A up overall.
 
# 19 AInquisition @ 02/19/10 10:42 PM
Also, Adrian plays in a hitter's hell. Park Factors are your friend.
 
# 20 JoeCoolMan24 @ 02/19/10 11:23 PM
LOL at Derek Lee being #8, and Adrian Gonzalez and Justin Morneau being so low.... Move A-Gon to #5, and Morneau to like #7, and D-Lee OUT of the top 10. That's pretty bad he is rated that high.
