Yeah just throw the rankings out and say Lavarnway is better based on your wishing and hoping!
As far as I know Lavarnway isn't Posada or Piazza just yet is he? As of now Montero is projected to be the better hitter........according to these guys Gary Sanchez is projected to be better than Lavarnway. Send me a post when Lavarnway becomes Piazza or Posada....thanks Tommy!
