He's quite good defensively already, which matters in getting a shot, and also has displayed enough plate discipline and raw power for me to believe he's our most promising position player prospect. While I do like Esche, I just don't see his ceiling being as high as Franco's (his floor is higher though imo).
Regardless of who you like better, the Phillies are developing some nice depth at the hot corner. Chances are someone will emerge at the big league level.

Asche
Franco
Martinez
Walding
Perkins
Green
