I'm trying to decide between Carlos Quentin and Logan Morrison. Right now my team is on the cusp of competing, so part of me feels that Quentin would be more useful for the immediate future. However, thinking long-term, Morrison seems to have pretty darn good potential. The only concern is whether he will develop 20+ hr power. Quentin is not old by any means, only 28 or 29. It seems both will be batting around 6th in the lineup. The power advantage goes to Quentin, avg and health to Morrison. Does Quentin still have that 2008 season potential (.288, 36 hr, 100 rbi)? I dunno, but its tempting to find out.
What do you guys think? No brainer to hold onto the better long-term player in Morrison, or try to hope that Quentin stays healthy enough to pop 25-30 hr and 90+ rbi? High risk/reward vs promising young bat.
