I'd actually say Laynce Nix... You need to make up the power you lost more than anything. I don't think Nix will be able to keep it up all season, but I don't think its ridiculous to bet on him having the best numbers from that group until Holliday returns... Bigger risk, bigger reward. Francoeur is proabably the safest bet, then Melky... Also, Patterson has a tremendous upside... In summation, my order goes:

Nix, Patterson, Francoeur, Melky

I'm thinking either Brantley or Melky, leaning towards Melky because of the RBI's, Runs, TB's and they are practically the same in SB's.

Do yall think thats the best move?
