Moustakas or Ackley...which prospect to pick up WHIR

Postby bobnerns » Tue May 24, 2011 11:04 pm

i want to pick up one of the top prospects who is about to be called up before he's taken. I'm in a 14-man, H2H, non-keeper league and 25 roster spots with 3 bench.

So should I pick up Mike Moustakas or Dustin Ackley?

My lineup is:
C - Matt Wieters
1B - Mark Teixeira
2B - Brandon Phillips
3B - David Wright
SS - Asdrubal Cabrera
2B/SS - JJ Hardy
1B/3B - Paul Konerko
OF - Ryan Braun, Adam Jones, Michael Cuddyer, Coco Crisp and Logan Morrison
Utility - Eric Hosmer

Clearly, I want to keep Hosmer in my lineup and the only place he fits is utility. Wright is injured but will hopefully be back soon. I like Hardy (because I'm an O's fan), but he might be the player to replace.

Overall, I think I'd rather have Moustakas, but he might not fit in my lineup (barring me trading away one of my three 1Bs). Should Ackley be similar to Moustakas in projected stats?

Leave your link.

how many bench spots do u have? depends who you're gonna drop. i like moustakas upside this year better than ackley. he is a masher. also check out Viciedo on ChiSox. he is more mature than either and could be one of the best call ups.

help with mine?

I like Moustakas of the two and would grab him regardless of fit. I'd ditch your boy Hardy for him.

Moustakas has the more upside but Ackley has already played in the majors and plays at a weaker position. If you are dropping Hardy, you are going to need a MI to replace him and Ackley would fit that need. If you can I would try to grab both assuming that there isn't anything better on the WW.
