hairston was the higher rated prospect. i would watch the injury situations closely though and choose the guy who looks to get the most playing time. if its a keeper go with hairston.

Hairston - is regarded as the next Jeff Kent

Nick Green is a role player AT BEST

Hairston is the much better prospect. Here are their minor league stats:

Green:
'99____.293, 12 HR, 15SB
'00____.244, 12 HR, 13SB
'01____.265, 10 HR, 9SB
'02____.239, 15 HR 2SB
'03____.248, 11 HR, 7SB

Hairston:
'01____.347, 14 HR, 2SB
'02____.345, 22 HR, 10SB
'03____.276, 10 HR, 6SB

Hairston should also have better numbers this year since there's no where to put Green once Giles returns. And if Hairston keeps hitting, he may keep his job even if Alomar ever gets healthy again. Hairston could also be moved to a different infield spot or get some outfield play as Bautista and Gonzalez are just waiting to get injured. They put Hammock out there last year so it's certainly not implausible. This is all just my opinion and I could be wrong. Hope it helps. I have Hairston in my NL-only league & am loving him so far.

Hairston's the DBacks top prospect. Green isn't listed in the Braves Top 30. As for Bellhorn, unless BB's factor into your league scoring (OBP), he's real marginal.

With so many questions surrounding Hairston's playing time, Bellhorn is undoubtedly the better bet for #s this year. I'd even say Bellhorn's the better bet for next year if you can withstand that low BA since he plays for a team with a very good offense and in a park that yields it's fair share of HRs. After that though, I'd say Hairston should have the better #s.

I actually think Hairston may end up with more playing time. Bellhorn will have to share time with Pokey, a better defender, at second. The word is that Pokey will play all Lowe's game at least. Once Nomar and Mueller come back, 2B will be the only place up for grabs for these two.
