Discussion Question: Ackley vs. Lawrie

There's been a lot of chatter lately about Mariners prospect Dustin Ackley and where he should rank on prospect lists. He hit just .147 in April but has been more effective since then, boosting his overall numbers to .255/.382/.378 with an excellent BB/K ratio and eight steals in 10 attempts. Defensive results are so-so thus far. Another Southern League second baseman, Brett Lawrie of the Brewers, is hitting .295/.359/.475 with 24 steals. His defense isn't horrific, but a lot of people still think he'll end up in the oufield eventually.

Ackley often shows up higher on prospect lists than Lawrie does, but is that right? Which prospect do you prefer?
