BUY/SELL Analysis

Andrew Lambo was a 4th round pick by the Dodgers in the 2007 draft who profiled as a higher pick but scared some scouts off because of some off-field trouble as an underclassman in high school.  Seemingly beyond those issues, Lambo terrorized GCL pitching to the tune of a .343 BA with 5 HR and 32 RBI in 181 AB’s.  Lambo has been compared to fellow Dodger phenom James Loney for his propensity to lash line drives all over the field with power.  Lambo has continued his hot hitting in his first full season at Great Lakes blasting 13 HR and 65 RBI in 94 games.  Lambo’s 26 2B’s show that he may have more power as he grows into his 6’3 190 lb. frame.  Lambo has cards in the 2007 Bowman Draft and Chrome set which sell for 75 cents to $1.25 each.  Refractors are also easy to attain at $8-10 apiece.

 

Market Analysis: Lambo has a sweet lefty swing that should produce easy power as he matures.  He has handled himself well as a teenager in Low-A ball and has earned a promotion to High-A in 2009.  He is still probably 2-3 years away from being ready for the Dodgers, but he is a solid BUY AND HOLD prospect at his current prices.  The fact that the ’07 Bowman Draft and Chrome cards are the only 1st year cards of Lambo’s will make them a bit more valuable as he continues to progress.  Grab a lot of 10-20 chromes and be willing to wait a couple of seasons.

  1. Watch Cooper over the next year and a half, he is going to be one power hitting mother!

  2. Absolutely, what a draft for 1B this season! It will be interesting to see which players will have autos in the 2008 Bowman Chrome Draft set.
