I would take Marcus Sanders over the lot. ;-D

BTW, while everyone else seems to be down on him, I actually really believe in Chuck James. I have no real proof, I just see the kid deveoping into something more then others see of him (I had the same feeling with Wainwright though...).

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I'm a big fan of Marcus Sanders as I have followed him before his semi-break out year last year. The kid will switch over to 2B in the future, because of his lack of arm and should make him more valuable for fantasy purposes. He is the best base stealer in the minors, great speed. Not only that but he is a speedster that can actually walk which bods well for his future, he is a proto-typical lead off guy for the Giants future.

I personally like Dustin Pedroia the most of the ones you listed. He is moving back to short this year. He will put up a sloid batting average, long with 15-20 homers, and a solid obp.



Sanders is also very good palyer, but is still feeling the effects of a high school ball injury which is causing his move to second.

Well Guzman isn't a middle infielder, he was moved to the OF. So my opinion is still the same, I like Sanders the most.

that list is straight from baseballnotebook's favorite players...nothing wrong with that, I love his work and read all his essays, but you should gather multiple sources and opinions, especially the cafe's ;-) He has some names not many people have heard of, so you can likely wait on guys like Denker, Carp, Jaso etc.

I like Sanders the most (just took him in my dyansty) from that lot...also like Pedroia and I would keep an eye on Herrera.
