Weeks you know will miss time with injury
With Hamilton you can't be sure if it will be injury or drug suspension - but I think I'd rather take a young player with upside who doesn't have injury and drug issues to worry about.
I don't think you can know that Weeks will miss time with an injury, sure he is a little riskier than others but it isn't some huge risk. He hurt his thumb in 2005 and he played through it, which is just something that happens to ballplayers. He hurt his wrist in 2006 and they were very up front saying that it would probably bother him all of 2007 and it did. He was a bad pick in 2007 because they knew he would have issues all yaer, but he is a good pick in 2008, you have to really look into these injury issues before judging the player.
I'd be more worried with Hamilton given his history.
