Ortiz (still maybe 1st round guy)
Ortiz started 7 games at 1B... he's 1B eligible in most leagues. In a redraft, Ortiz is the best bet of these three guys I think. Prince could be great, but I'd like to see him do it over a longer stretch before I take him in the first. Howard obviously is a great bet for 40-120, but probably about a .280 average. I understand about Papi's knee, but he had a great year with it clearly bothering him last year, and now it should have been fixed by the surgery. I can see his power returning and him batting .300+. I think he's the best play by a decent margin. I'd go:
