Soriano vs. Beltre vs. Gonzalez vs. Cameron

I just put this post on an old thread and reprinted it here in an effort to generate more hot stove discussion.

Here's some 2006 stats of two of the free agent names that we've thrown around here on previous threads, compared to two of the more productive Padres from this past season. I'll let someone else slap together career stats and projected stats if all 4 had the same number of at-bats since Soriano has nearly 100 more ABs over Cameron. Richard, I am looking in your general direction because you always manage to put together some crazy stats like OPS for night games with the temperature between 75 and 80 degrees after the clubbie has filled the Gatorade tub with Fierce Grape and the chosen player's toenails have been clipped within the past 33 hours.  Also, keep in mind where these guys bat in the line-up.

I am not putting A-Rod on here because we both know that ain't gonna happen.

       Well, lookee here. Our Padres are a little more clutch with 2 outs with runners on 2nd and 3rd.

I cannot guarantee if the stats are exactly right as I toggle between screens. (And, yes, it is an extremely slow day at work) It is also worth noting that Soriano's power numbers dropped after the all-star break, whereas Beltre and A-Gonz did better during the second half of the season. And here's a good analysis of all the free agents (including pitchers).
