I think Jermaine Dye is the best OF, Brett Myers and T. Armas are two of the better pitchers...Jack Wilson, Casey Blake, Mondesi, Willy Mo Pena, Inge...

I think I like Ginter more then the rest as hes multipositional, and Crede just got into the mix from what ive read around here. Anyways my OF draft card is full due to a good deal of draft pick trades, so if I wanted an OF it'd be tougher.

Whos has the best possibility to breakout?

If you wanna talk position eligibility, Id probly take Inge over Ginter. Blake will be OF and 3B eligible. Id also rather just take Will Mo cuz I think he has great power potential.

Crede is the player who scares you when you don't draft him. You're fed up with him, like Beltre, but you don't want to give up, because you just know that the year he breaks out, you won't own him.

I'd take Inge and Pena over Crede. Maybe Blake...

So you like those guys more than Crede? Isnt he in the Beltre mold, great prospect who hasn't lived up to his potential....

With this pick i'd like to big or go home. Dye can only go down. I don't see Inge bustin out, maybe a good utility guy, but nothing more, and Willy Mo isn't even starting as of now...

I really have it between Crede and Ginter...

I like Ginter more this year. 2B is a bigger plus to me.

As far as breakout goes, Crede is 27 this year so if you subscribe to that theory he is your man.

My numbers for this year
Ginter:
55 Runs, 20 HR, 58 RBI, 263 AVG, 6 SB

Crede:
66 runs, 21 HR, 72 RBI, 250 AVG, 1 SB

With a 25th rd pick i'm not looking for the "safe route."

I'm just wondering if anyone thinks theres a better option...

This is something I found interesting about him:

White Sox hitting coach Greg Walker thinks he can fix Joe Crede by leveling out the third baseman's swing.
Walker said Crede was vulnerable to certain pitches because his swing had an uphill plane and came out of the hitting zone too soon. ''His timing had to be perfect to hit certain pitches,'' Walker said. ''Add to the fact that you lose confidence when you're scuffling and it gets worse.'' Crede might lose some power with his uppercut gone, but he could make up for it by making more consistent contact. Source: Chicago Tribune

I'd take WM Pena over both Crede and Ginter. However, if you need backup IF, go with Crede. You are risking nothing with the pick, and its possible that he breaks out.
