Yes. Wainwright will be 1 yr removed from TJ on about opening day. Command will not be there yet & they will likely need to use kid gloves with him in the early going. In your standard drafts, J-Hey is long gone before Wainwright is even thought about..

Matt Moore
Justin Upton
Brett Lawrie
Eric Hosmer
Ben Zobrist
Brandon Phillips
Jason Heyward

MDC has Wainwright at 105, Heyward at 109.
Are you a BJ hater? ;-)

haha. not big on bossman jr. I think that as we get into ST Heyward will distance himself. Plus, OBP is a category which helps JHey here.

Thanks for all the input guys. I'm noticing not much love for Napoli. Are people feeling like last season was an outlier.

I gave him a vote.
Don't expect .320 again. Had a very lucky babip.
But projections have him over 500 abs, 30 hrs, 85 rbis, .280.

I agree with this list. I wouldn't go as far as 6 thumbs up for Upton though. Maybe 3-4.

With you keeping Moore, Lawrie, and Homser, you have to keep some proven talent elsewhere. Adding Heyward to this list would be too much of a gamble IMO.
