I have them pretty close next year. Something like 275-25-85 give or take. Either could really break out and hit 30+ HR, but given their minimal playing time so far, I think that's a stretch. It's often not that unusual for new sluggers to put together a half-year or so of big power numbers, but then they sort of fall off a bit as pitchers figure them out.

I'd gladly have either on my team, but IMO they are the "hot prospects du jour" and will be taken earlier in the draft than they really should be, considering the risks and lack of track record.

Good - I have Morneau at $10 and Wright at $5 - I'm keeping both on my protection lists.

I was in need of a 2B, so traded a $10 (FA price) Morneau for D Jimenez $5 and Jose Mesa $4. I gave up some power, but got a pretty good 2B and a potential 40 save guy. I traded to get Wright and hope I brought the right guy to my team and won't be hurt by sending the wrong one away.

I think you could have gotten more for Morneau, considering the hype. Mesa has got Mike Gonzo behind him so he doesnt look very safe for 40 saves.

What did you give up for Wright?
