When and Where: The Kouzmanoff Debate

Leave it to Cleveland to have this sort of problem...with a dearth at 3b they pick up a top prospect in Marte only to have him struggle while an older less heralded player, Kouz, goes beyond lights out and has incredible stats all year.  I just want some people's opinions on how this will play out.  I realize the litmus test for minor leaguers is  where they are age-wise in their development.  While Marte is younger than Kouz at a higher level how can you ignore the stats the latter has put up this year---and for the past two years for that matter.  It just seems like a nice problem to have---if you were ANY other organization in baseball but the Indians have a way of messing these things up.  So your thoughts on how this will play out.  Thanks
