Long Term Superstar Potenial

Postby Slow Pitch » Tue Jun 05, 2007 8:50 pm

Who do you guys think will be the more valuable MLB all-star BJ Upton or Hanley Rameriez? Not in the fantasy realm, but in real MLB value.

There games are somewhat simialar but who would you rather have if you were a big league GM?

I can even see HanRam doing better in future than Reyes. He's the same type of player with more pop in his bat

Hanley at this point. Upton just needs to improve a little bit on his plate discipline.

I'll take Hanley because he has shown his ablilites for a longer period of time in the MLB. Upton certainly has the potential to be one of the best players in the league though.

Hanley for sure. Hanley seems to be the more rounded player right now.

I'd take Hanley by a long shot. Perhaps I'm just bitter because I traded Upton for a song. :~(

Hanley is definitely more well rounded but Upton has a better bat. Remember that Hanley is older so if Upton continues to hit well this year then they pretty much started to contribute around the same age. I'll take Hanley today but I may change my mind at the end of the season.

Hanley for now, obviously, but Upton is younger and has more raw potential. Don't laugh, but he really could be the "next Soriano" with 40-40 potential.

Upton could be a fantasy monster as soon as next year. Right now you have to take Hanley because he is proven...but Upton could very easily be better than him very soon.
