second round pick: Tejada, Magglio or Sheffield

What order would you rate these guys?

I have Helton as my first round pick, and the draft is heading back to me with a few picks still to be made.

So far the following were taken:
ARod, Soriano, Vlad, Pujols, Pedro, Prior, Schilling, Helton, Beltran, Manny, Nomar, Halladay

(I'm expecting Bonds, Sosa, Randy Johnson and one of these 3 to be taken ahead of me)

Also available are guys like Suzuki, Rolen, B Boone, Thome but I think the first three are all better, and I would prefer a hitter over a pitcher.

Any thoughts?

This is a 5x5 non keeper league.

Thanks

Randy Johnson shouldn't be drafted til later on, so another of those guys may disappear before it gets to you. Anyway, I would go:

Magglio
Sheffield

in that order. I wouldn't even take Tejada. Renteria is better, and he should still be around in the 3rd round.

I would say:

Sheff
Tejada
Maggs

But that is just me...

Sheffield. He shouldn't even be around in round 2, he has to be the pick.

The other two are good, but just look at Sheff's numbers from last year, and look at the lineup he's playing in now.

I agree 100%. Mags is the way to go, followed by Shef.

this is probably a stupid question but, doesnt the steroids controversy make you a little bit nervous about Sheffield?

I would be very tempted to take Thome here even though you have Helton already. If you didn't it would be Thome without Question. Would you have a spot for Thome?

Here's my Order
Bonds- if he happens to be there
Thome- if you have a Util spot
Delgado- again if you have a Util Spot

Sheff - Not that worried about the 'roids thing
Mags - Very close to Sheff, pick him if your the least bit worried

Tejada or Renteria should fall to you in the 3rd
