Once again, what I wanted to write and post by this morning is turning out to be a much more in depth project than I initially thought, so expect a post about what to expect from our left-handed starters in 2009 later tonight or early tomorrow, but for a preliminary discussion on the topic in the meantime, a common theme in KC threads about this week's Ramon Ramirez for Coco Crisp trade, was that the Royals basically got a steal by turning Jorge De La Rosa into Crisp with a year of effective relief in between. The point of any trade is to be better going forward, past performance quickly becomes irrelevant after the deal's been done, but here is what the three provided in 2008:
|2008 - Jorge De La Rosa||10-8||4.92||1.46||128||62|
|2008 - Coco Crisp||.283||.344||.407|
|2008 - Ramon Ramirez||3-2||2.64||1.24||70||31|
Given that, who do you see as most valuable to their team in 2009?
