Easy. Garret Anderson is three years younger than Junior, and over the last three years has more RBI, more hits and a better cumulative batting average than the Mariners new DH.
Standing pat, as Mark Bradley suggests, should not be an option. Brandon Jones hit .260 with a middling .748 OPS at Richmond last year. Gregor Blanco is a poor man’s Dion James, and Jordan Schafer probably requires a bit more seasoning.
