Tank is much better than Mouton so I don't see a comparison there. However, Tank has very little in common with Frank other than pure strength. Personally, I've always viewed Tank more as a Carlos Lee type of hitter and I think that is ultimately the type of player he will mature into. A solid power hitting corner outfielder but probably not a franchise guy. As Little Nell pointed out though, there is only one full year under his belt so we really don't know for sure what type of hitter the young Tank will mature into.
