If those are the top four, take Billy Butler. He'll provide some offense wherever he ends up playing and is one of the less risky players available.

Butler is good, but you run the risk of him ending up as a full time DH. If that scares you away, i would probably go McCutchen.

Somebody in your league must really like Braun. Granted, he's a very good prospect, but I can't understand why someone would take him above some of those other guys. Homer maybe?
