I'd go Hudson at $7.

Definitely Hudson! Big K potential!

(Grady's SB days are done prolly...Austin Jackson's year was a fluke, IMO, other than SB's...Davis is a serviceable 1B but Hudson could be more than "serviceable" at his position)


(Help with my Prado/Utley issue?! Thanks!)

I'll go against the other posts and say Sizemore.

Hudson's numbers are primarly based on a one-two trips around the NL. He really projects as a third starter and I think his ballpark and talent will catch up to him.

Sizemore is a risk but the reward is so much higher. For $7, you are not giving up much. Also, I'll take a position player over SP any day of the week.

Please help

I agree that Grady may be worth the risk at the price but he's never been a big BA guy...RBI were about average. What made Grady great was his 30-30 potential. The power's taken a dip and the SB's should take a huge dip now. Worth the risk? Maybe...he's cheap. Hudson a stud? No...but could post close 170 K's. And he's only 24 so the upside is simply better.
