Re: Dustin Moseley runs record to 5-1 with complete game victory
Hmmm... tough one. Both played in similar hitter-friendly Texas League/PCL environments. Both have similar minor-league batting lines. McPherson is slightly younger and was slightly ahead in the development curve, but Shealy has shown a little more home-run power.
I think most people would say McPherson because the ability to play third base makes one more valuable than a similar hitter who plays only first, and he might be a little more athletic and thus age better. But if we presume we're looking for a regular first baseman, then it really becomes a toss-up. So my answer: Whichever one can be obtained more cheaply.
