I'd take Morneau, but I'm willing to bet other owners in the leagues I'm in would be willing to take a risk on him earlier than I am.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

What does Morneau have on Fielder?

I'm starting to wonder if getting hit in the head may have slightly derailed Morneau's career. Recovering fully from that type of injury isn't a given.

I would go with Morneau right now, but they're very very close.

Thanks for the responses guys but I as well will take Prince Fielder ;-D He is an absolute beast with no injury question marks who hit like, what, 27 hr in about 375 at bats at triple A last year??? I think you'll see Fielder and Weeks develop into a nice combination such as how Hafner and and Peralta are turning out to be.

I completely agree with this statement, but I don't agree that this will happen THIS year. I'd take Monreau for this season, and than Fielder in the future.

Both players could be great this season. Morneau should be solid this year. His .271/.340/.536 line in 2004 likely got folks a little ahead of themselves. Still his potential is very very high. His price and draft position should be significantly reduced in 2006. A lot of people are discounting the Twins lineup because of their porr showing in 2005. With Luis Castillo adding his obp to the lineup and Rondell White hopefully staying healthy at DH (I think he could hit 30 homeruns in a full healthy season), Jason Bartlett and jason Kubel in for a full season, the Twins should suprise as much in 2006 as they disappointed in 2005.

Prince Fielder has the great benefit of being a fantastic hitter in a lineup that is solid without him. That should allow him to hit down in the order to start the season without a tremendous amount of pressure. I'm thinking it may take him half a season to adjust to mlb pitching but he should be solid in any case. But don't think you'll get Prince cheap or that he's flying under the radar. he is probably THE most popular baseball prospect in fantasy baseball with the possible exception of Delmon Young. He'll be expensive in only-leagues and not cheap in mixed leagues.

At later rounds I'd take a flyer on both and draft other positions earlier. One of the two should pan out. ;-D

I don't think Kubel's return is certain. He hasn't played at game speed for more than a year and he isn't supposed to be 100% for Spring Training. A midseason callup may be more likely.

Anyways, back to Fielder vs. Morneau.
