Moustakas, Porcello, LaPorta

Postby Curtis Pride » Mon Mar 10, 2008 1:22 pm

My minor league supplemental draft is coming up, and these are going to be my options.

I'm leaning toward Moustakas over LaPorta. LaPorta seems closer, but Moustakas seems to have greater upside.

I'm admittedly ignorant about these guys. I don't typically start to look at a player until they've actually played in the pros. I don't follow college/high school at all

If you need a pitcher go with Porcello....if you need offense go with Mouse. As much as you generally go offense whenever possible with minor leaguers.....Porcello may be an exception...this kid is and will be very good!!

Well it's the first season of a dynasty league so I don't really "need" anything.

I had basically assumed that people would recommend staying away from pitchers due to their flame out rate.

I have the second pick. The four best players available are Moustakas, Porcello, LaPorta, Wade Davis.

I honestly have absolutely no idea who to pick.

Davis has great stats, but the AL East worries me. Everyone else has almost no track record.

Its really not a pick that you should stress over.....take Mouse or Porcello and be happy. They are both going to be good more likely than not. I might actually lean towards Porcello though....

i actually just had a similar decision to make and i took mous, mostly because tejada is my starting ss and i wanted a young guy in the wings.... porcello or mous depending on whether you prefer pitching or hitting.

I would take Moustakas. Porcello could be good, but pitching prospects are always risky. LaPorta will be the best option short term, but Moustakas is projected to have a bigger upside.

I'm guessing players like Bruce and Rasmus are taken?

Keep in mind though that it's highly unlikely Mous is gonna stick at SS...
