If you were building a baseball and you had the choice to either aacquire a 23 year old Carl Yastrzemski or a 23 year old Manny Ramirez, who would you take?
I think this is an interesting conundrum because you have to consider the entire package of each player. Manny has that amazing bat, but is a problem child and somewhat injury prone. While Yaz has a great glove, more durable, and a team leader.
