better 1b prospect: Lars or Loney?

Postby FrozenRopes » Fri Feb 23, 2007 11:41 am

Who do you guys like better: Lars Anderson or James Loney?

I think Lars can develop the power down the road,
whereas Loney may contribute this year with solid #s but low power for the corner.

Which side of the fence are you guys on?
Pete Rose belongs in the hall.

Loney's top potential is Sean Casey/Overbay...

Lars could develop more power so i'd take a chance on him.

Lars Anderson has huge upside. Loney will is pretty much a finished product. He is a Sean Casey type firstbase. Good average, lots of doubles, but won't hit 40 homers.

Call me crazy, but I'll go with Loney. Lars Anderson could be the next anyone... he could even be the next Graham Koonce or Brad Eldred. It's too early to tell, so unless you have a deep minor league system, and aren't looking for a contributor for the next couple of years I think Loney is the guy.

Hate to divert the subject a tad, but how do you compare Lars with Chris Parmelee? I think that is a safer/closer comp since they both came out of HS last year. Parmelee had time in the minors whereas Lars did not.
How do you compare these two?
