Baez.

Sano has more power, but Baez has better everything else.

For me, out of these two, from an overall player perspective, I easily prefer Baez.

I get it that Sano for the most part is without a position. What troubles me is Baez's pitch recognition/aggresiveness at the plate. Sano being in the American League, can always DH. I would rather have Sano for now.... 2013 is a big year for both players to see how they grow or dont grow.

My question is- Are you talking card values or something like wins above replacement/

pretty damn close... im sure you would get different answers from every scout. Sano probably has the highest power grade in the minors so that might be worth most in the hobby, then again Baez is a Cub.

For me then its Sano- Collectors dig the long ball... I see similarities to Stanton with Sano. Sano obviously not as talented as Stanton, but if he goes off in Hi A or AA look out...
