Scott isn't bad.

But playing in San Diego is not going to help. You really think he is top 3 on this list?

True, playing in Petco, in that horrible offense will hurt.
Will he be the best on this list? I don't know.
I just go talent first, then other factors.
He's on pace for 80 runs 25 sb.

Scott might be a safe option.

i like carlos lee has a chance to get 80 rbis will strike out a ton but ya no whatever upside 25 homers downside 17 homers highside .260 avg lowball .240 some doubles in there started insanely slow last year and is doing better than that this year and he ended 24 home runs 89 rbis and 30 doubles thatll work i no hes trending down but if he can hit his first year again in his downward trend those sound like fantasy worthy numbers to me

13 seasons career .286 hitter

Interesting. It could be a great pickup. I do remember him being terrible to start last year and then picked it up. I just hope he's not washed up. U would take him over cody ross or andre torres thoe? And a healthy delmon young?

I would go with Lee or Maybin. I have Maybin in two keeper leagues and I like his production so far. As Hootie said he is on pace for 25 bags. And Lee still has talent and will get his 25 bombs by the end of the year. I would pick up either one whether you want speed or power.

please help
