It's going to be a hard decision. I have always loved Wright, I built my team around him 4 years ago.

I'd say Braun/Wright because they will contribute across the board. Not many steals from MCab. Hard to turn down having two 5-category guys.

I think the question is justified since you'd figure Braun/Wright/MCab will all go around the same time especially in a keeper. I'd go with Braun and MCab for the simple fact that they have more power potential than Wright. Wright's speed is nice but Braun is probably hitting 40 already this year and MCab should get there also considering that he is still younger than Wright. In the end though you are splitting hairs and you really can't go wrong with any of them.

Some comments:

-Personally, I wouldn't have any closer in the top 50. I would probably only have Paps, Nathan, FRod, Lidge and Soria in my top 100 maybe Mariano (due to his age).

-The only pitchers I would have in the top 50 (assuming a 12 team league that would be a keep 4), would be Peavy, Lincecum, Johan, Webb, Hamels, CC and Kazmir. Halladay & Felix would follow the top group. Haren, Bills, Joba, Volquez, Lackey, Z, Harden, Sheets, Beckett, Ervin, Kershaw and Cain would probably be in the 70-110 range for me. Lester, Verlander, Shields, Danks and Wainwright would probably be next. (I may have missed a few).

- Quentin should probably be top 20 just ahead of guys like Longoria/Kemp.

-I would rank the oufielders after Pujols/MCab: Fielder & Howard then Tex/Morneau/Berkman/Ortiz/Agon - the order is just kind of personal preference. All of which I would have in the 12 - 25 area.

-In the 30-40 range, guys like Markakis, Hart, Upton, Vlad, & Mags should be closely ranked with the preference going towards youth obviously. I would take Bruce, Delmon Young, & Chris B. Young top 100 also.

-If I were doing a draft, 2B is a position I would try to avoid in the top 100. It seems like they are likely to disappoint where they are slotted (besides Alexei and Utley)

I believe he was Cuba's leading HR hitter last year. I had looked up his stats for my minors draft. I don't remember it as being very many though (low number of games?).

I think James Loney has to be in the top 100. Conor Jackson would be close as well.

Joba is way too high, despite his performance this year. He is still a young pitcher who now has tendonitis.

If Morrow comes up and pitches well, is he really any different than Joba?

They are different as Joba is much more advanced than Morrow.
