Better combo: M.Saunders/B.Norris or Viciedo/J.McDonald?

Postby jnormy » Sat Aug 08, 2009 4:24 pm

Maybe I'll have better luck in this forum, with all the minor league aficionados:

I can land either of these two prospect/young player combos for essentially the same package in a keeper league... which is the better choice for long-term upside, and why?

Michael Saunders and Bud Norris
OR
Dayan Viciedo and James McDonald

I'll be happy to help u 2, just leave your link. Thanks!

I prefer the Mike Saunders Bud Norris side.

Just strictly numbers.

Saunders AAA - 248ab .310/.378/.544 13HR 6SB 25BB 48K
Norris AAA - 120ip 7.8(H/9) 0.5(HR/9) 4.0(BB/9) 8.4(K/9)

Viciedo AA - 414ab .275/.312 /.386 10HR 5SB 19BB 75K
McDonald AAA - 30ip 6.2(H/9) 0.6(HR/9) 4.2(BB/9) 11.9(K/9)
McDonald MLB -41ip 7.4(H/9) 0.9(HR/9) 4.8(BB/9) 5.7(k/9)

Just looking strictly at the numbers, I take the Saunders/Norris side. Throw in the fact that Saunders is considered a top 25 prospect in most circles, I would go with him. None of the guys really project to be superstars, but Saunders could end up being a McLouth kinda guy, and Norris could be a useful #3/#4 guy.

I'd agree that the Saunders/Norris side is the way to go.
