Prospect Draft - 3rd round pick help

Postby giambiformvp » Sun Oct 05, 2008 9:29 pm

Right now I have Cahill and Moustakas. The guys I'm debating on picking are Austin Jackson, Jesus Montero, Justin Smoak, or Jhoulys Chacin. How would you rank these 4?

All are very close in fantasy value, so you can't go wrong no matter who you pick. Personally I'd rank them like this:

Smoak
Montero
Jackson
Chacin

I agree with DevilDriver, I'd rank them the same way. ;-D

Devildriver is right on the money again but I think there is a big gap between the bats of Smoak and Montero as oppoed to AJackson. Chacin had a solid year but still pitches in Colorado(eventually)and is only in pitching in A-ball which means he is quite a ways away. Chacin also lacks a good body(short and stocky)which limits his projection. He is a distant 4th in my mind.

Yup, Agreed with everyone....though I agree mostly with cardinals first sentence here. I think it is Smoak and Montero then a tier down is Jackson and Chacin.

Eh Jackson didn't put up flashy numbers in AA but he has a lot of upside. His 20/30 potential gives him similiar value to Smoak/Montero imo. Chacin put up outstanding numbers (especially considering he continued dominating in the hitter-friendly Cal League) and he has the stuff to back it up. Not to mention he's only 20 yo; he has the potential to be a 1-2 starter. Coors shouldn't be a significant factor considering how good his GB rates are.
