where do you get the PECOTA comps?
At the baseball prospectus web site (it's pay).
While PECOTA may like LaRoche more, Kevin Goldstein, who is an excellent minor league writer for BP, likes Braun more. (Braun 12, Laroche 20). Offensively, I think that Braun has a higher upside, which someone already said.
