That's not a good comparison because the players are TOTALLY dissimilar.  Burns is a leadoff man who plays minus defense; Taylor is a bottom-of-the-order power guy who plays plus defense.  ONE DAY he may be a leadoff guy that strikes out a lot a la Gomez but Burns is a terrible comparison.

Just because the players are dis-similar doesn't make the question of who you would rather have invalid.   Who would you rather have: Mike Trout or Clayton Kershaw?    The answer (to Taylor vs. Burns) depends on your needs.  It's a tricky question:  if Span is back (and Werth too), we don't need either.  Without Span, we need both.
