Sweeney or Lowell?

5x5, OBP instead of runs.

Will Sweeney ever hit 30 hr?

All things being equal I'd draft Lowell before Sweeney.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

Sweeney's never hit 30 HR before. Is this the year? I wouldn't bet on it. Lowell over Sweeney.

Lowell will probably have better numbers at a more shallow position, he's the easy choice for me. He was the #2 3B behind Pujols last year until he was injured. He had comparable stats to Chavez and Rolen in 25 less games. Factoring in Sweeney's injury risk and the fact that above average 1B's like Sweeney are a dime-a-dozen, and I'd take Lowell in a heart beat.
