I'm leaning toward Vlad, due to Kent getting overlooked in a lot of drafts so far.
Anyone who saw the 502 foot homerun that dented the stadium, knows that Vlad is healthy. That was after he came back from the injury.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

i agree, just out of stats i would prolly take vlad, but cuz he is like 2 notches above any other 2B, i would go with him out of those 3. Personally, I'd take a pitcher, prior or pedro, but thats just me.
sure vlad's SB totals are probably not going to push 30, or even 20.
but he's got legitimate protection in that angels lineup with garrett anderson, troy glaus, and even an added bonus if jose guillen even puts up 2/3 of hte #s he put up last year.
watch out. vlad never had more than ~24 HRs in a lineup with him, and that was vidro batting in front him, i think one year chris widger was 2nd behind vlad with 18 HRs.
so i mean, vlad's going to have a fighting chance to put up 2000ish #s, which off the top of my head was .345/45/125
so i'd take vlad above anyone not named bonds in terms of pure hitting.
i'm still at a loss, who do i try to nab in the 1st round... vlad or prior? i think prior's 1st round for-sure this year, while i got ridiculed so badly last year for taking prior in the 3rd round of all my drafts. no way he lasts that long this year
