Ch-Ch-Ch-one Figgins

Does anyone else disagree that Choke Chone Figgins is just an older version of Emilio Bonifacio? At this point it is hard to compare the two, because Emilio has spent most of the season in the minors and when he has been called up, he has been benched so Chris Coghlan can embrass himself in the outfield like he has done all season.

I'm sure some people still disagree and maybe heated now that I am throwing it back out there, but hey I gotta say "I told you so." Chone Figgins gets the mid-season award for biggest bust and most overpaid SCRUB of the year. The season has not even ended yet and he won the award already.

Good job Seattle and congratulations to Chone Figgins for his ... achievement?

Chone Figgins vs Emil Bonifacio

THIS IS SERIOUS BUSINESS!!!!!!!

Which would you rather have? Emilio Bonifacio or Chone Figgins.

Both guys are second basemen turned into third basemen, very little power, has speed but has way too many lapses trying to steal bases, and both have subpar defense which if not for their speed would be utility bench players.


A look at the stats.

Chone Figgins (158 GAMES) 4YR/$36 MILL ($9 MILL PER SEASON)
615AB 5HR 54RBI 114R 42SB 17CS .298BA
14 ERRORS. .968 FIELD %

Emilio Bonifacio (127 GAMES) $460K
OFFENSE: 461AB 1HR 27RBI 72R 21SB 9CS .252BA
17 ERRORS .938FIELD %


Me personally, I would love chone figgins OBP and SLG, but for $9 mill? Bleh you can have it. Dude gets thrown out way too much and is not much different then Emilio.

I thought the Rangers and Yankees overpaid people, but hey the Rangers gave it to A-Rod (worth it) and the Yankees won a championship. The Mariners? Another last place battle with Oakland next season.
