Farm Pick

Postby muddwindy » Wed Mar 14, 2012 11:02 pm

Cant decide on Joe Panik , Giants or Mike Olt Rangers.
Alot of reading and just torn. When they are called up doesnt matter.


Really like Olt.

Between the two, Olt. I see Panik as being more valuable in real life - upside seems to be a very good "table setter," high OBP, plenty of runs and a good AVG. Olt is a more complete hitter at this point, which is what matters for fantasy.

I like Olt more. Solid bat with above average defence to help get him in the lineup at some point.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

Agreed. Only problem with Olt is that he could get traded and you don't know what that will do to his stock. Beltre is their 3B for a while unless they move one of the two to 1B but i don't hear that is going to happen.
