Ok, just like the Bonderman v. Kazmir post. By the way, great answers from those that responded. Much appreciated. Who do you like next year and into the future?

Do people really see Kotchman developing the power to make him anything better than a Grace or a Casey? These two always had great BAs but they were never anything better than marginal fantasy 1Bs.

that is the line of thinking that i was also concerned about. do any of these guys have realistic upside to make them more than an everyday fantasy 1B?

Kotchman by far IMO. Sheton and Johnson are a wash.

I like Sheldon because of his home park.

Johnson is solid. But you would want more than solid from a 1B. The home park isn't encouraging either.

Kotchman's dual eligibility is a plus. Could be plugged into 3B. His numbers at that spot would look more encouraging.

Not sure why you like Shelton because of his park. From what I can gather it's a less than average hitting park. Also not sure why you think Kotchman played 3B, according to Yahoo! he didn't even play 1 game there last year.
Anyways for next year I like Johnson the best as I'm not sure how much PT Kotchman will have. But from then after I'd take Kotchman. He'll likely never hit 40HR but I can see him developing 30HR power which puts him above the likes of Sean Casey.
