Player A vs. Player B

* Player A: .340/.453/.793 in 2009

* Player B: .335/.418/.753 in 2009

 

Player A's OPS from 2009 was his lowest since 2003, and he has averaged 30+ home runs/season since then (including 27 last year). Player B's OPS has been dropping in each of the past two seasons, as has his home run total.  Plus, Player B has become increasingly annoying, and is demanding too much money in arbitration.

Player B, of course, is Corey Hart.  Player A, though, is Jermaine Dye, who is currently a free agent that no one seems interested in. Dye turned down a $3.3 million offer from the Cubs a week and a half ago; unless they were laughed out of the room by Dye's agent, it's certainly possible that Dye could be had for (about) Corey Hart money.

The good news, were the Brewers interested, is that the Pale Hosers didn't offer Dye arbitration, so even though he is a Type A free agent, the Brewers wouldn't have to hand over a draft pick.  The bad news is that Dye is one of the worst defensive outfielders out there.  (Then again, that's what GoGo Gomez is for.)

I admit, I've pretty much soured on Hart.  More to the point, I'm worried that he's not going to rebound to anywhere near 2007 levels.  (Besides, with Cameron gone, we're short on aging outfielders.) Soooo...who do you think will have the better year in 2010, Corey Hart or Jermaine Dye?
