Either way they go if they sign him, either of them will have probably the most protection they've ever had. Guerrero's never had a Tejada or Gibbons hitting behind him and Tejada's never had a Guerrero or Gibbons hitting behind him unless Giambi did, but I can't remember that far back. I like the possibilities.
not to burst anyones bubble but mora is only considered OF if u r using a 15 or 20 game eligibility rule .. im pretty sure yahoo uses 20 games.. so mora is one position and that makes him a weak OF option
You would have to wait a few weeks for him to gain eligibility at 3B. Not the greatest of options though.

I thought they changed that if the player is already named as a starter... I hope they will just add 3B after the spring training...

Those are Mora's OPS+ numbers from the past four years (if you don't like those fancy newfangled stats, here's batting average:
.275, .250, .233, .317
Mora's not a bad option as a utility player and 3B will add to that value. But, remember that Mora played significantly above his head last year and much of the increase was in batting average (55 points above his lifetime average), which often signifies a freak occurrance. Of course, 3B has a pretty big drop-off, IMO, after the best players, so Mora could be decent even if he drops off. But, I'd be surprised if he hits more than 15 HRs this year.
I'd be willing to take a chance on Stairs in late rounds. I'd only play him against righties, where he's batted .270 with an .892 OPS during the last three years playing primarily in neutral or pitcher's parks. This year he'll be in Kauffman, a strong hitter's park, playing mostly 1B and DH where he should be less injury prone. he could definitely turn out to be a valuable contributor, if used wisely.
