Just a thought...Garret Anderson?

One name that I haven't seen mentioned much in the free agent bonanza that is the off season is Garret Anderson.  I've seen Raul Ibanez mentioned more and I couldn't help but think that is a horrible idea--he can't play defense in a stadium that isn't affected by the weather as much as Wrigley, can you imagine him trying to run down a fly ball being driven different directions by the wind?  Anderson has a better glove and his power numbers seem to be similar--for a more detailed comparison, see baseball-reference.com--but Anderson's career numbers .296/.327/.469 compare favorably with Ibanez's .286/.346/.472.  Both are the same age--Ibanez is actually 28 days older, and both fit the "left handed hitter with pop" image.  Anderson also has extensive post season experience -- just don't look at those numbers, they are a little frightening.  Thoughts?
