Better Hitting Prospect?

Postby Slow Pitch » Mon Sep 18, 2006 8:02 pm

Joel Guzman or Billy Butler?

I believe we will see Guzman in the bigs first, but how has more potential overall?

When do you see either one making an impact?

Hmm...is this a trick question? In my opinion, Billy Butler is the obvious choice.

I think Billy Butler reminds me a lot of Manny Ramirez (both with the bat and glove). While Guzman might have better tangibles, he's no way near as safer and projectable as Butler is.

Butler is easily the choice for me. Much more polished, safe choice

Guzman's prospect status has taken a huge hit over the last two years. I agree, Butler is an easy choice here.
