Who is the next Albert Pujols, or, more appropriately, the next #1 fantasy baseball pick?
Really depends on what you mean by "The Next Pujols". Are you looking for a carbon copy of him, in other words a minor league player that is somewhat comparable? Or a guy that could put up the standard 5 cat stats that he has? Or a minor league that will come out of nowhere and jump to the majors and produce?
It's hard to compare him to anyone in the minors, he was a very very rare case. Delmon Young could produce similiar 5 cat numbers w/ maybe an edge in SB's but not as good of an avg. Also Pujols is that one in a generation talent that all of a sudden became much better as a major leaguer.
Overall, the best minor leaguers to have a chance to be a future #1 pick is either Delmon Young or Justin Upton IMO.
