Yeah, I agree on this one. He's a mid 30's guy. I'm not sure how playing OF, if that is where he'll be unless Crede is dealt, will do to him.

Guzman is a stud physcially. 6'6 250 than can play SS/3B/1B/OF. He moved around so much from position to position to place to place that his minor league campain in 2006 didn't surprise me. I believe he is currently tearing up winter ball as well. You really think we should give up on such a promisiing player at just 1 year of organizations bouncing him around??? No. He was the most highly regarded player ever taken out of the DR. Not saying that that always works but dropping him off that much is foolish. 25-35 imo.

Well, Sickels has Campbell as the #1 player in the Braves organzation. Loves his bat. He'll likely move to 1B imo but since this is fantasy based I could see guys like Andrus ranked ahead of him because he's a SS but when in doubt...go with Sickels. Since he's so young, 65-75 imo

I'm not sure how anybody can think that Stubbs is just a defensive player. I doubt the Reds would have drafted him as the eighth pick in the draft if they did. Stubbs is a physical stud at 6'5 190 with reflexes like a panther in CF with a great glove. He's very muscular as well. I really can't think of anybody like him ever to play CF like he does. He's a much larger version of Jim Edmonds in my mind. He needs bigtime plate selection help since he K's so much but the power potential is surely there. I really don't mind him not being included in the top 100 since his contract rates are so low but he's a sleeper to be sure. If he improves his plate discipline it will remind me of Happy Gilmore saying, "Uh oh, Happy learned how to put".
