Help! Minor League pickup

Postby Sheff's Chef » Sat Aug 27, 2005 11:10 pm

I've got an open spot and I'm having a hard time choosing between:

Felix Pie
Billy Butler
Troy Patton
Jon Lester

There's some other solid players available like Andy LaRoche. I've already got a few good OFs and Hermida. But Pie seems to be one of the more highly regarded guys left. I'm leaning towards Butler because of his power. Thoughts? Are there any 'under the radar' guys I should look for? Also in need of SBs, if there are any players out there with decent potential and speed.

I'd rank Butler first, then LaRoche.

Butler, then Pie. Unless you're lacking in pitching depth, Patton is going to be a good one in a couple years.

Yea, I am debating between Butler & Pie for my league....Butler is hard to guage, because he is playing in a hitter friendly park in a hitter friendly league....he is still gonna be good though....Pie is five tool with developing power, but seems to have the injury bug...I think Pie has an outside shot if he impresses in spring training to win a job next year...Butler is at least '07
