Depends on what you're looking for, but as it's a late round target, you're probably just looking for the best overall production.

I think Daniel Murphy is a nice guy to target, as he is a very important bat for the Mets, and they'll do just about anything to make sure it's in the lineup. Whether it be LF, 2B, 1B, I don't know, but they're going to get him 600 ABs most likely, and he's going to hit about .285-.310, which is nice.

Another guy I like is Colby Rasmus--call me crazy but I haven't given up on him yet (after all, look what happened to Alex Gordon last year). I could see Rasmus as a 20-20 guy, and maybe even a 25-25 guy, and I don't think the Blue Jays are going to give up on him like the Cards did (although, speaking of which, the Blue Jays have another Alex Gordon-type guy with Travis Snider, so who knows).

Bye bye Rasmus.

I'd go with Craig.

Allen Craig is intriguing, but gotta hate the injury - how often do early injuries totally derail a season. I'd still probably pick him there and stash him.

Would love thoughts:

We'll see. I just think the upside is greater for Rasmus, and in the late round, that's all anyone is looking for. I'm going to bookmark this thread just in case Rasmus goes Alex Gordon on all of us. :-P

Although JD Martinez would certainly be worthwhile as well.

Rasmus would be my pick. Nobody else there has the .270 30-15 upside.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'd go with Rasmus. He still has the most upside.
As for Craig I'm not as worried about the injury as I am about where he is going to get AB. Chances are Berkman or Beltran miss time but if not I don't think he is going to be many AB.

I really like JD Martinez this season. He would be my choice here. Other guys that I wouldn't mind owning would be Presley & Craig. I've never been all that high on Rasmus.
