Even during his meteoric start, I wasn't too high on Austin Kearns. He lacks the sheer power of Adam Dunn, and his main asset is putting the bat on the ball. I think history shows those kinds of batters grow into that role over a period of time in the big leagues, and rarely start off with a full solid season. But make no mistake, Kearns will be a star one day.

But who to choose between Alou and Kearns? I predicted that the Cubs, even after their horrid start, would make a run at the playoffs. I'm not so sure anymore. They have so much pitching talent on that team it's incredible I don't hear more about it. But things are clicking on the Cubs team. If they don't start to win, it will affect Alou's stats.

However, at this point, I would take Alou over Kearns. Griffey will be back in a couple weeks, and Kearns will get the short end of the stick again. On the other hand, if Alou stays hot, the benefits will be awesome thanks to Slamming Sammy.

I'm inclined to agree - see my note relative to Kearns and Edgar.

I'm not quite as down on Kearns yet, but I agree: for the coming week, go with Alou and hope he keeps it up. Good luck!
