I have Shawn Green and Juan Gonzalez in my outfield. Both were relatively late picks, and both are huge question marks after injury-plagued seasons last year.

What do you guys think about their relative prospects this year? Will they both be healthy? Will Green increase his HR and SB? Will Gonzalez adjust well to Kansas City?

Most importantly, which of the two has more trade value, and what kind of players (ideally, power-hitting speedy outfielders) do you think I could get in return?

Green is much more valuable, IMO anyway.
I dunno abotu Juan Gon's prospects, but I think Green should rebound.

I look for Green to return to form and Gonzalez to get injured. :-D

How old does a player have to be to be aging? Does Green qualify yet? ;-)

In any case, both seem like solid pickups if you were able to grab them late. I agree that Green probably has a bit more trade value, but you'd probably be able to get more value by dealing them to a team in need of help in the outfield than if you're looking for an OF in return.
