LaMarre and Fellhauer - look 4th outfielder or adequate if need be starters to me. I see somewhere between Stubbs and Heisey if that.
Waldrop and Lutz look better. Still none of them tend to make think All Star or hurry up and get here! Lutz could really break out, though, if he starts whomping the long ball like I think he can.
Hamilton as a CFer is the only one that makes me think what if..?
The best prospects are the guys just drafted, imo.
Fellhauer I would agree is a 4th outfielder type player because he doesn't normally play when there's a left handed starting pitcher on the mound. I think though you are under estimating LaMarre. I see him as a future everyday center fielder whether it be with the Reds or with another team. Not sure what you don't like but this guy is the perfect prototype leadoff guy! There's an article out there today that was written about this on CincyHardball.com: "Could LaMarre Be a Future Leadoff Hitter? OF Steals Home in Pensacola Win"
... I guess we will have to agree to disagree!
