A couple friends and I are having a discussion over who is the better shortstop-Derek Jeter or Troy Tulowitzki. If you factor in defense, Tulo is the better SS. But for roto/fantasy purposes, who is better?
Here's a look at their 2009 stats:
Tulo has more power and drives in more runs, while Jeter hits for a better AVG. and steals more bases. I have to say I was shocked to see Jeter stole 30 bases. I am not an AL roto player, so I don't track American League players.
Jeter had a BABIP of .369 VS .323 for Tulo, while Tulo had a slightly higher WOBA-.393 to .390. Tulo walks more and strikes out more than Jeter.
So who would you rather have in 2010?
