With Kearns set to return tomorrow (went 1-4 on rehab assignment last night)..........who would you want out of these 2 for the rest of the year??? Both should be hitting in the heart of their respective orders..........

I don't really know what Kearns is going to end up doing, so I would go with Bay.

So you know what Bay is going to do? :-)

I ask that seriously. What are people expecting from Bay?

I'd def. take Kearns (if you can afford to chance an injury). Should he remain healthy he is by far the better option. ;-D

Homer?

Liberty30...Just curious. What are you basing that opinion on? I notice you might be a Reds fan? (Not that there's anything wrong with that.)

It may be a little homerism :-D , but I also feel that Kearns has the most upside for this year. He will hit in the middle of the order for a Reds team geared to score runs and in a ballpark built for run scoring. Austin's age (25 in 9 days) and experience in the majors mean that it is now or never time for him to perform.

However, Jason did perfrom very well last year in the AAA, but it must be remembered that that IS the PCL (offensive heaven, so stats should be taken with a grain of salt).

Given the above, both are excellent options. Assuming both remain healthy I would definitely take Kearns over Bay. Injuries, however, have been a concern for the past year or so with Austin, so one must weigh the risk reward. For now, I'd take Austin and leave Bay.

Kearns is in the better lineup and has more potential for power. Bay might have a better average and steal a few more bags.

Kearns is all around a better prospect then Bay is w/ out question, not to mention Kearns will hit in a better line up. Kearns can also get double digits in SB's so Bay really doesn't have any advantage there.
