Which OF Prospect do you think has more upside, Josh Reddick(Bos) or Jaff Decker(SD)?

I'm not a huge fan but I think Decker is the clear choice here. His bat looks to be superb and has a decent chance on making the Padres opening day roster next season. Reddick is nice but his bouts with inconsistent contact look like they'll hold him back from being a good future fantasy play.

Decker. All he does is hit. If you look at the guy it's pretty clear why tools-oriented scouts aren't crazy about him (he looks like someone that should be playing beer-league softball), but there have been plenty of doughy guys that hit in the majors. And all Decker does is hit. He's off to a great start this year, too. Decker has the potential to be an impact bat, one of those middle of the order, high RB/RBI guys. Reddick does a bunch of things fairly well, but he doesn't have a standout skill that would make him a good fantasy player. He's a good 4th OF and he's got 20 HR power, but he's extremely impatient at the plate and has terrible OBP skills.
