Joel Guzman, Milledge, Hamels

Postby bigken117 » Mon Jan 17, 2005 10:25 pm

which would you take and why?

If Hamels wasn't such an injury risk this would be easy.

Does Milledge project to the next Beltran? What about Guzman? There's a crowded IF situation in LA with Cora, Kent, Young and Thurston all in the mix.

Thanks

Guzman
Hamels

Milledge


It all depends on what you think of Hamels, if you're high or low on him .... He could be closer to Milledge's level if you think negatively with his injury and all, but I'd probably put him right under Guzman since he has that phenomenal changeup.



P.S. Didn't give Milledge much of a chance in that poll eh? :-b

But since Hamels is such an injury risk:

Milledge (He won't be Beltran - more like Mike Cameron)

Guzman (He's going to be Alex Gonzalez in his prime)

Hamels (He's had a few too many injuries to be considered a prospect at this point.)

Milledge
Guzman
Hamels

I'm high on Milledge. I've also invested about $250 in baseball cards of him, so I have a reason to love the man. Anyway, he has great speed, projects to hit for power as well. If you want to call him the next anything, call him a poor man's Griffey, Jr. I think he'll top out at 35 homers, but he could very well steal a good 20-25 bases a year. He'll also hit over .300, making him more of a 5 category player than Beltran. He's great defensively, like Cam, but will probably be a better hitter than him. Milledge could very well fill out and hit more homers. He hit an impressive amount for a rather short season last year due to injuries...

He definitely needs to work on his plate discipline, though. Lastings did take great steps in that. The 5-category tool set is most definitely there. He's the toolsiest kid in the minors. Period.

Guzman has gaudy power...but his maturity is a concern. He can be compared to Beltre in that sense. Guzman has freakish power and will prob. move to 3B.

Hamels is a top pitching prospect, but the injury risk is a problem. I also tend to prefer hitters to pitchers anyway (plus lower risk) and those two other guys are gaudy prospects. Having them above Hamels is more praise to them than taking something away from Cole. He projects as a better prospect for a team than in fantasy because he is a lefty.
