Today's prospect debate: Ryan Zimmerman of Washington vs. Andy Marte of Boston.
Two fine third baseman. Zimmerman is a potential Gold Glove winner. He's a solid all-around hitter who should produce batting average, OBP, lots of doubles, and some homers. Marte is also solid defensively, though not as good as Zimmerman. He has more power and will likely hit more homers, along with reasonable OBP, though perhaps not as much batting average.
Let's say you are Terry Ryan, GM of the Twins, and you can have either Ryan Zimmerman or Andy Marte to play 3B. Who do you pick?
