Longoria vs An Laroche

Have a draft coming up and was looking to bag one of these guys for my minor league roster. im having a hard time deciding between the two. When they reach the majors isnt an issue. on talent alone, who stands at the top?

I would go with LaRoche. He's more proven and you have a higher sample to base your pick on. Plus, he has a good predigree. Longoria had a good, ok great, 2 months as a pro but many doubt his power. I'm not a Longoria doubter as much as I am a LaRoche believer.

On pure talent alone you should go with Longoria. I am not as high on Longoria as some but a couple baseball gurus think very, very highly of Longoria. LaRoche will be good but perhaps not great...which Longoria is more likely of achieving.

Longoria reminds me alot of how Alex Gordon came thru after he was drafted. he exploded onto the seen very much the same way and they are very similar hitters.

Longoria is gonna be a beast soon. i like both players but i have to give the edge to Longoria on cieling and upside

I like Longoria by alot. I feel his upside is better and that he is underrated because he came out of what alot felt at the time was a weak draft class. I think we see now that that wasn't the case, but Longoria is better.
Is pushing for President Obama to pass a law requiring all citizens to be Chicago White Sox fans and make October 1st "White Sox Day" where we all dress as our favorite player. It maybe socialist, but I don't care.
