I recognize that Ozzie's offensive war is about 15 points or so higher, for the types of players that they are, I don't think that enhances his value drastically over Vizquel.
Having seen 90% of Ozzie's career and all of Vizquel's, I'm of the opinion that their separation is pretty minimal.
I'm a Cards fan, I take the Ozzie obviously but
I suppose my point was that if you believe Ozzie taken a round earlier is slotted fine
, Vizquel then is by no means a tremendous reach.
I don't really agree with that either.
