    Not even close? No offense, but a statement like that just screams homer.

    This year Montero is definitely outperforming Anderson, no arguments there. However your using a mere 164 plate appearances as your evidence of that?

    Two can easily play at that game.

    Lars Anderson at AA Portland in 2008 (163 at bats)
    wOBA: .423
    RV600: 42.5

    Jesus Montero at AA Trenton in 2009 ( 164 at bats)
    wOBA: .405
    RV600: 37.0

    So I'm assuming this makes Lars Anderson the better of the two players? Comparing small sample sizes is lame.

    I dunno I like Lars and so far he has had much better obp ability or more plate discipline

    both are good, but there is no way montero stays at C

    its close anderson has been better or just as good every year except this year, and their OPS are not too far off, if you take away anderson's struggles but that is part of the growing process i guess
    Well if you take away A-Rod's struggles he would be hitting .600 this year. That statement is pointless.

    The year age difference helps Lars so advantage Montero.

    2009 (Age-21): AA: .262 / .357 / .408 / .765 8 HR 39 RBI in 267 AB's

    C Jesus Montero (Yankees)

    2008 (Age-18): Low-A: .326 / .376 / .491 / .867 17 HR 87 RBI in 525 AB's
    2009 (Age-19): Hi-A + AA: .347 / .404 / .574 / .978 13 HR 52 RBI in 265 AB's
    Come on, you know this isn't much of a comparison right now. Montero's putting up better numbers and he's 2 years younger. Looks like someone was fishing for compliments.

    Right now you have to go with Montero. He's progressed much faster as a hitter playing a tougher position. He's not as polished as Anderson but he appears to have more talent.

    Lars isn't even in the Sox farm system top 10 anymore. Time for this thread to back to the mothballs again.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    This thread should be more about Lars than Jesus now. What happened to that guy? I remember when the Sox posters were hyping him up like crazy.

    its not all bad yet, remember he did just turn 23 and hit the MLB level (mostly by default)

    This year he raped AA and was quickly moved up to AAA, first half was poop, then his second half was really good, complete opposite of the first half.

    So it seems he has to make league adjustments when he jumps which only seems natural

    This year is make or break for him, no getting around that.
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all

    Jim Callis hyped him up, he put up monster numbers true but he did so in lancaster which is very easy to put up good numbers hitting wise. Remember when Dan Bard was a bust and Anderson was a beast? Yep...
