.312/39/111/89 and .300/31/105/69 the last two seasons is tough to argue with. He's a lot safer than other guys being drafted in that range like Cruz, Uggla, even A-Rod who is a scary injury risk. Also probably a lot safer than the 1B going after him in Hosmer (who isn't falling much further), Morse (who is likely being slotted as an OF), Young (who again, probably isn't being played at 1B), Berkman, etc. If Butler still has 1B eligibility, I like him at Pick 113 and Morneau offers some upside at 166.
