Aaron Miles stats....

For starters, since they will be compared until at least the end of the year DeRosa's career batting average is .279. Miles career batting average is actually 10 points higher. On base percentage though is another story. DeRosa's career OBP is .348 while Miles is .329

enough comparing

For those who think Miles can be our answer to leading off so we can move Soriano lower in the order, take a look at these career leadoff stats for our new second baseman

in 206 games leading off he has a .272 batting average with a .305 OBP

id rather have Soriano leading off until we get a legit leadoff hitter

When next season is over, the fair comparison will be DeRosa's production with the Cubs, to what Miles did in the season. Something tells me "drastic" will be the word used to describe the difference in production.

how about if DeRosa has a really bad year? will you still think it was a bad move to get rid of him knowing that he could have done that here as well?

all hypothetical of course

No. For two seasons here, DeRosa has consistenty played well. Making the leap back to the American league and a new division isn't easy. Plus, it looks like DeRosa will be playing 3B in Cleveland. ... After next season, the fair comparison is DeRosa's 2-yr averages with the Cubs, with what Miles did in his first season with the Cubs.

You tend to be very contridictory in what you chose to predict.

Dempster has a career year , you guarantee him to never match it.

DeRosa has a career year , you guarantee him to match it .

Never in my life have I seen so many bad points being made by one person. Not since Corky from "Life Goes On" has a person made me scratch my head so much. ..... I never said DeRosa would match last season. He probably won't. But he can come relatively close. DeRosa's two seasons before last seasons career year: 06' 13 HR . 74 RBI . .296 BA . .357 OBP . 456 SLG ..... 07' 10 HR . 72 RBI . .293 BA . .371 OBP . .420 SLG ..... I think it's safe to say, DeRosa has shown great signs of consistency in his game. And next season, the Cubs could reasonably expect 12-15 HR . 70-80 RBI . .290 AVG . .360 OBP . 450 SLG. ..... Dempster's two seasons before his career year were spent as a reliever. Want me to go back to his last two seasons as a starter? 02' 10-13 5.38 ERA ... 03' 3-7 6.54 ERA. See a difference in consistency Lee?

The comic clown appears again , complete with his bright red nose and wild gestation's!

I love how you dip into stats that were a result of an injury , TJ surgery followed those years.

I have heard three interviews with him so far and he is a guy I like. I talked with a cards fan in my office and he said they guy plays the game right, hustles, takes pitches, hits behind runners etc anything to win. Sounds like the riot to me?

I don't think the Miles and DeRosa comparisons are fair.

you should be comparing Fontenot and DeRosa. I'm guessing Fontenot will get 200 more PA appearance this year, and there will be SS/2b platoon between DeRosa, Miles, and Fontenot. I also think the Miles was brought in to support Theriot. Like ICcubfan said, we've all read Miles called a 'smart player'. If Theriot keeps running into outs on the basepaths and doing stupid things like that, Miles could get an increasing share of the PT share there, especially considering Miles has a much stronger arm.
