Jose Lopez or Hanley Ramirez

Postby jason128 » Thu Mar 31, 2005 4:28 pm

I am in a keeper league and each of the 16 teams can keep up to 8 minors. You has better longterm upside. Jose Lopez or Hanley Ramirez. I have Lopez and have been offered Ramirez for him. Just trying to get your thoughts.

thanks for your help

While Lopez is more advanced right now, I think Hanley has more long time upside. He will always be on a good team being on the Red Sox (unless for some odd reason they deal him), he should be more of a SB threat and I think he will hit for more power. All Hanley needs to do is keep his head on straight, which he seems to be doing now.

The one area that is "iffy" is were Ramirez will play with Renteria in Boston, he could play 2B which would be great .... or move to CF. If you really want a SS, I'd say Lopez is the better bet to stick there. Though if you want the better long term prospect, I'd say take Hanley.

i would say that hanley has the better chance to become a superstar with his skillset...... but lopez has the better chance to become a very good everyday SS in the majors.... so in other words, hanley has the best upside but lopez is not too shabby himself......
