I never saw that post you made on Sickels' site so I wasn't basing my prediction off it. There's no need to get angry, I wasn't trying to be mean. I just thought it was funny that a couple days after I made the post he actually did get called up.

Who said I was angry? I didn't think you were. I was just showing off.

Oh alright then...

Although you didn't really PREDICT he would get the call soon. You merely suggested he might overtake Kouz on the depth chart. You don't necessarily have to be in the majors to overtake someone.

You're right. I Actually, I would have predicted he'd go to AAA before the majors but I did notice his movement up the prospect charts.

So how would you guys compare him as a prospect to Andy LaRoche? I have a minor league draft coming up at the end of the month in my keeper league, and could either:
1. decide to promote LaRoche to the end of the bench on my parent club to open up a slot to draft another prospect,
2. try to use my #4 waiver priority to pick up Headley when he's eligible on Yahoo and keep LaRoche in the minors, or
3. try to pick up Headley and just dump LaRoche to open up a slot to draft another prospect.

So, simply, me question is: who's the better prospect, Headley or LaRoche?

I would go with the more advanced and touted LaRoche over Headley if choosing between the 2.

3B Prospects in the minors factoring in polish, glove, and advancement...

1. Wood
2. Longoria
3. LaRoche
4. Stewart
5. Headley
6. Walker
7. Rowell

Wood def. has more potential with the bat, but I think you have to rank Longoria ahead of Wood right now since he has produced much better and is obviously better with the glove.

Well, Wood is learning a new position and throw from 3B. He's been a SS for his entire pro career. Wood has the better glove imo.

Evan could play SS ( per either Callis or Golstein) he is so slick with the glove, but he's also never had more than 100 XBH in a season...

Honestly, Wood looks to be either a grand slam or a swing and a miss as a prospect. Longoria has almost as much upside and not nearly as much downside as Wood IMO.
