Giambi has the greatest potential reward, but is also a big risk.

If you like taking risks, go with him; if not, go with Young, the best of the rest, although Palmeiro will probably give you the best BB/K ratio.

Grab Giambi now and one of the others, preferably Young later.

If this is for a backup 1B, go with Giambi. Risky, but could be a big payoff.

Otherwise I'd go with Young or Overbay. Depends on whether you like your risk to come in terms of injury or youth. Both will probably put up similar numbers.

I take it back. I started looking at the numbers more carefully. I like Young better.

Try Giambi, but I see overbay having a hot start and you could swing a nice deal with his increased value. Think Hidalgo last year.
