Revere or Stanton?

New, 55 comments

Who would you rather have, Twins outfield prospect Ben Revere, or Marlins outfield prospect Mike Stanton?

Stanton offers outstanding power and is younger, but also has the horrific strikeout rate. Revere doesn't have anything approaching that kind of power, but isn't exactly punchless, has great speed, and is a more refined hitter.

I've been ranking Revere higher, but am I worrying too much about Stanton's strikeouts? Do you prefer the Kenny Lofton-like upside of Revere, perhaps with less chance of failure, or the enormous power potential of Stanton, perhaps with a higher risk of failure?
