Mike Minor ATL LHP
Grant Green OAK SS

Kyle Gibson MIN RHP
Brett Jackson CHC OF
Lance Lynn STL RHP
Lou Marson CLE C
Chris Carpenter CHC RHP

I also like Kelly a little better than Mejia but for fantasy purposes, Mejia might fare better pitching at Citi Field against NL lineups.

I goofed on the initial list. Both Kelly and Decker have been drafted. I've heard a couple of endorsements for Chisenhall and am interested in what you think of him.

I haven't really put my list together beyond the top 50 but Chisenhall would probably fall in the 51-75 range(I've got Mejia at #38). That being said, hitters are usually a safer bet than pitchers.

I would take Drew Storen. Great stuff, with only a shaky Capps in his way.

For long term talent, Jacob Turner.

Chisenhall there too.

Storen is more valuable in 4x4.

I just noticed that Chisenhall was drafted a couple of picks ago. I really goofed on this thread; been a LONG week!

With that said, is Mejia the right pick here?
