McPherson vs. Kotchman

Postby BumpWills » Mon Dec 06, 2004 11:46 pm

Who is the superior prospect? McPherson obviously has more power
but he is three years older and strikes out a ton. Kotchman could
develop power but can McPherson develop contact skills?

Furthermore, how likely is McPherson to stay at third?

I think McPhereson is their top prospect, but you're right, he strikes out A LOT. He's still shown me more than Kotchman, though(I watch a lot of angel games).

I don't project either doing a whole lot next year....I could maybe see McPherson hitting 20 Hr, but not much more than that. Over the long haul, I'd rather have McPherson because of the huge power potential.
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.

I'd take McPherson. Casey Kotchman has been injury prone.

I'm not sure I get the Dunn comparison. As 21 year-olds they both played AA -> AAA--> MLD but...

Dunn 51 HR, 100 BB, 156 K
Kotchman 8 HR, 31 BB, 43 K

As 21 year-olds they are completely different hitters. Both very successful, but in different ways.

I'm not sure I'd compare McPherson to Dunn either. Dunn had his 51 HR season as a 21 year old. At 24 McPherson hit 40 HR and drew less walks. Three years is a lot when we're talking about prospects.
