I just picked him in the shockwave dynasty minors draft (4th round). What do you guys think of the young CHW outfielder? Any current player he projects to compare with?

Well, I think Anderson's going to be a solid MLB player, but I don't see the comps to Jeremy Reed at all. Reed seems like he could top out as a special hitter of a mold similar to Tony Gwynn. Anderson strikes out much more often, and should have more HR power, as noted. I'm thinking a reasonable comp stats-wise would be Rondell White - above average in just about every aspect of the game.

Not knocking Anderson, but here are the two stat lines from AA Birmingham at age 22:
Anderson: .270/.346/.416
Reed: .409/.474/.591

Admittedly, that's Reed's best line, but hitting .400 at AA over 250 AB's is pretty rare.

Not a good idea to cut and paste a piece of someone's article, without posting your source... I believe this is from John Sickles..I just know it's not you ;-)
