Lars Anderson or Matt LaPorta

Postby TEAM SCHMEGMA » Sun Jan 14, 2007 9:24 am

The Red Sox drafted LaPorta in the 14th round out of the University of Florida. Four rounds later, they drafted Anderson out of high school. Both are definite power hitting first basemen. LaPorta bats right and Anderson left. Who will be the Red Sox first baseman of the future?

Considering LaPorta did not sign and is back for his senior year at Florida, I think you're left with Anderson and no choice.

I'd go with Lars Anderson right now, too.

I'm not sure if it matters for your question, but LaPorta didn't sign with the Red Sox. After a dissapointing junior season -- .259 batting average, just 14 home runs after hitting 26 as a sophomore, and just two doubles after hitting 16 the previous season -- he's going to back to Florida to play out his senior season. If LaPorta is healthy this year and doesn't get draft happy, he will be a top five rounder, but I'd still go with Anderson.

EDIT: Ha, I was 3 minutes late.
