Moustakas or Goldschmidt? Convince me.

Postby Rotowahoo » Tue Mar 20, 2012 3:44 pm

Okay, so who would you keep? Moustakas or Goldschmidt? As of right now, I feel like Goldschmidt may suffer, while Moustakas might settle in like he has in the minors. Obviously, I could use a 3B more than 1B, but I'm flexible. Who will have the better 2012? Better 2013?

Did I miss it? What are the prices?

With out that info, I would take Moustakas. You need a 3B, so seems like a good move. Both have major questions marks and both have a lot of upside. Not sure which one is more likely to succeed so give me Moustakas.

What he said. Taking price out of it I think looking at your roster Mous will help you out more. I see both players having the same upside with a ton of the same question marks.

Goldschmidt, mainly because i think Moustakis is overrated.

Sorry, they're both $5. Do you think it's likely that their BA will be quite different?

Moose probably the second coming of Mark Reynolds (numbers wise w/o the Ks) I'd go with the player at the thinner position.
