Barring a glaring need for him, I'd drop Buck. If you do need someone to help you now, go ahead and dump Brandon Jones.

I'd cut Hu as I believe Lowrie is he better of the two SS prospects you have. I think that a lot of love goes to Hu because he is pretty good defensively.

Hmmm....this is a tough one. I think you hang onto Buck because he has shown he can hit at the big league level and should be guarenteed a starting spot while the A's rebuild. I think you hang onto Lowrie because the Red Sox will be trading him(possibly for Johan) or he would replace Lugo this year or next. Lowrie has 20hr potential and his bat should play well in Fenway. If he gets traded he will probably be starting by mid-season. I like both Hu and B.Jones and do not see much difference. Jones has the greater upside, but Hu is closer to reaching his upside and should be starting in 2009 if the Dodgers let Furcal walk as a free agent. Jones could be a 20-20 player in the OF. Hu should be a solid hitter with 10-15hr power and should steal around 20-30 bases at SS or 2B. I guess it depends on what you need more....an OF or a middle infielder. Both should be productive players in the majors by 2009 if not sooner. All four are average to borderline all star type players so a lot of people should have many differing opinions. Good luck! ;-D

Thanks everyone!

Cardinal....hahaha thanks for that long post...my thoughts exxactly. I don't know what to do but I think it's easier to replace outfielders than middle infielders.

Part of me was leaning towards Buck because he's always hurt and has minimal HR power....but he has proven he can hit.

I'm stuck.

I drop Chin-lung Hu because Fantasy Baseball is all about the offense and although he has shown improvement in that area, IMO he would be last on your list in that category.

I'd lean towards dropping Buck slightly over Hu and Jones.
