I know for a fact that Hanley will go #1 and Braun #2. My question is what do I do with the #3 overall pick...here is a list of the best available players - I know you cant really go wrong with any of them but I'm not exactly sure what order I would rank them.
Miguel Cabrera Prince Fielder Ryan Howard David Wright (next best available player according to MDP is Ellsbury so the decision is really only between these 4)
I know most people probably wouldnt put Wright on this list, but I really think he can bounce back this year and go .320 100r, 25-30hr, 110-120rbi, 20+ sb. Although he will prob post the best HR/RBI numbers, I just don't want to take Howard in the 1st round as he is too much of a BA liability and I can get similar power numbers from Fielder/Cabrera along with a .300 avg.
I'm pretty sure the decision I have is Cabrera or Fielder...who would u guys take? Or do I try and trade down a few spots and take Wright or Howard?

I'll say Prince.
Miggy will give you a higher BA but that's about it. Prince has him edged out in all the power categories and their OBP's are similar as Prince draws a lot of walks. Prince is the slightly better fantasy player pretty much across the board IMO.
