Way too high to take Ellsbury imo. You want at least a 4 cat player at this spot, not a 3 cat player.
Fair enough, but I went with somebody who will be productive right away, and choices like Joba and Hughes worry me as pitchers who have not proven themselves as starters on the major league level, and thus to me, are too risky here, despite Joba's success in relief. I don't see any other hitters who are as sure as Ellsbury to play significant minutes in 2008 and contribute heavily while doing so. If I went long-term potential I would probably throw Kershaw in there.
