BUY/SELL Analysis

Logan Morrison was an unknown draft and follow 22nd round draft pick out of Maple Woods CC in Missouri.  After his ’07 season where he hit .267 with 24 HR and 86 RBI at Low A Greensboro, he opened eyes as a 1B who could potentially hit .300 with 30 HR per year at the MLB level.  This season at High A Jupiter, Morrison has continued to impress, hitting .337 with 9 HR and 54 RBI.  His 36 BB/ 53 K’s show that he has advanced plate discipline for his age and he seems to have figured out how to hit LHP’s (.300 this season vs. .195 last year).  Morrison has 1st year cards in the 2008 Bowman Chrome Prospects set that currently are fetching $1.25-2.00 each and with refractors (#’ed to 599) selling at about $12-15 a pop. 

Market Advice: Morrison is on the fast track to Miami.  His blend of power and average are very appealing and at less than $2.00 a chrome card, he seems to be a must BUY.  Additionally, I would keep posted for the checklist of 2008 Bowman Sterling cards, as he possibly could have an auto in that set.
