Kemp and Kemp, very easily.

Kemp has all the tools to be a star in the league. He has shown good power, good speed, and an ability to hit the ball well at the Major League level.

I honestly dont understand what the commotion about Ellsbury is, beside him being an employee of the Boston Red Sox.

Kemp
Ethier



Ellsbury


Go with Kemp for sure. Ethier is close. Ignore 3-cat Ellsbury if you can get either of the other two.

hhmmm....interesting. While Ellsbury has the lowest ceiling of the three, the guy I'd most rather have for '08 is....Ellsbury!

Kemp has the highest upside, surely the Dodgers will give him a full time job SOON!!

Kemp has the most potential
Ellsbury has the best chance of reaching his potential
Ethier is a .280 hitter that may hit 17-23hr someday and is not good enough to play as a corner OF...not much upside whatsoever. He is a Casey Blake type player....the kind of guy who if he is your starter the team continually tries to upgrade. :-D

ya i agree in 08 i would take Ellsbury but the player with the most up side is easily kemp if he ever is allowed to play.

These are my thoughts. Ellsbury is a nice player, but doesn't have the potential that Kemp has. Ethier doesn't excite me, Casey Blake is a nice comparison.
