Either/Or: Eric Hosmer or Mike Moustakas

New, 50 comments

I'm going to start working on the book this weekend. The first three teams I do are always the Twins, the Braves, and the Royals. . .just a traditional order, then I start changing things up.

Planning ahead for the Royals this morning, I started thinking about Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas. Both had outstanding seasons of course. Which one would you rather have? Moustakas had the amazing power season obviously, but Hosmer is a year younger, controls the zone remarkably well, and had a terrific season of his own. I think that Moustakas will show up a bit higher on most prospect lists, but is that right? Ten years from now, who do you think will be the better player?

NOTE: The use of the Hosmer photograph is not intended to lean the discussion in a particular direction.
