Brandon Crawford VS. Jimmy Rollins

Although J-Rol may have been a better player than Crawford in his prime, right now Crawford is the better player and continues to improve every day. Rollins does give the Dodgers veteran leadership, but Crawford’s production this year is too much to overcome. Crawford actually leads the Giants hitters with a 6.0 WAR.

Crawford–.269/.328/.495, 19 home runs, 74 RBI, 28 doubles, .979 fielding percentage, and 6.0 WAR.

Rollins–.225/.279/.359, 12 home runs, 39 RBI, 20 doubles, .979 fielding percentage, and -0.3 WAR.

Advantage Crawford.
