Greg Golson.

Burke was touted for his five-tool talent and thus far, has failed to show that talent offensively at three levels over two seasons with two clubs. The power he added at the tail end of his high school career seems to have vanished and save for a .446 slugging in short-season ball this year (where he had an XBH% less than 10%), he's been completely devoid of power. He hasn't hit the ball well at all. The one positive is that he's drawing a lot of walks.

Golson on the other hand, showed some positives this year. Although he had spent some time in High-A in 2006, he started 2007 off strong in the FSL. He showed some power and has used his speed on the bases. He'll never hit for a great average as he strikes out WAY too much but he'll only be 22 next year so it's not like his time is up.

Personally, I'd roll the dice on Burke. They're both raw as hell, but Kyler is 3 years yoounger, and offers loads of power potential.

I don't like either of 'em. If I had to choose though I would go with the younger guy in Burke.
