It's like an underachieving/bounce back candidate battle royale.

I think I like Rasmus the most...he's a younger slightly less hated version of Alex Rios.

To be honest though, it's an absolute crap shoot. I think if you get the best out of all these guys, then Adam Dunn is the most valuable. I think I'd rather have 40 HRs than a 15-15 guy. But the question is, who is most likely to perform as close to their potential as they can? I like the Jays lineup better, and Rasmus is the youngest, so maybe the most resilient?

I'd go Rasmus personally.

Even If Adam Dunn recovers, I just don't see him helping your batting avg. If your league counted OBP instead, you would be in business.

Rasmus can contribute to steals His BA could be lousy too but at least he doesn't have a long track record of it. Throw in the fact that the Rogers Centre is one of the best hitter's parks for lefties in baseball and the odds favor Rasmus.
