Great pic, it's going in a new Milledge sig when I make one. Milledge is really a different type of OF than Darryl was. Milledge can actually field his position. Granted, I do not expect him to have the power numbers that Darryl had but he should hit for higher average...and boy does he have a nice arm on him.

These are largely why I hate comparisons, when people just take a large Mets prospect from the 80's and compare him to another in the present time. Strawberry was an amazing prospect, quite a bit better than Milledge IMO and they are both fairly different though both were toolsy prospects.

Milledge does not remind me of Strawberry.

Strawberry was a HR/RBI guy. Milledge can field his position well and has an excellant arm. He will also hit for a higher avg and steal some bases.

If I had to compare Milledge to one guy it would be Mondesi.

You people and your prospects argghh..I want to pick them all up. Unfortunately I have not enough moves to do so...ARGHH!

Homer: You're Darryl Strawberry.
Darryl: Yes?
Homer: You play right field.
Darryl: Yes?
Homer: I play right field, too.
Darryl: So?
Homer: Well, are you better than me?
Darryl: Well, I never met you... but... Yes.
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I have to disagree on this comparison....Milledge is a great prospect and all, but Strawberry's talent was unbelievable when he first came up. He could have been a consistent 20-30 stolen base, 30-40 HR guy every year if not for the drug issues.
IMO they are not in the same league.

I forgot the amount of stolen bases Strawberry had the first 5-7 years of his career.
