Sure he may hit 25 HRs, but would you want Matt Stairs on your fantasy team? That is basically what he will be: Mike Cameon without the SBs.

I would have to say Ignuchi or Reed out of the people listed, but what about Wright?



+1 to the comments on Swisher's overratedness. His price probably still fits in w/ 'Moneyballism' but I don't see any of his numbers projecting into major major league success just yet. I've not seen him hit though.

I think Wright no longer qualifies as a rookie but I think he'll be pretty decent too.

I'd have to go with Reed. Should give you a decent average and some steals.

If you have a couple of guys that can offset Swishers batting average than Swisher is the guy. I do and he's on my team. I'll take the 25 hrs and .258 average. they all can't be .290-.300 hitters. 25 hrs.

I think they are having Biggio work out there during the spring, but with Berkman injured I don't see how they have enough talent to fill the OF without Biggio in LF. If Burke bombs he might be in trouble when Berkman is healthy though.
