I have the same concerns. It seems like everyone is predicting a better year based on the lineup but the most important factor about Reyes to me is his health. The turf seems like bad news for anyone with back or knee issues.

Wow, I suck...I totally was online when it was my turn around 2 but for some reason I didn't realize it was my turn. Ugh, sorry about that delay.

I'm a big fan of Bautista at that pick. The improved lineup should help his counting stats and I'm not worried about the wrist since he's been swinging at full effort for a couple months and wants to play for DR in the WBC. He had a brutal April but was back to his homerun king ways in May/June before getting hurt.

Yeah...I saw Hammy was already taken the minute I hit submit and had already had a back up. I wanted Bautista there. I was torn between BPA or scarcity and I went with a scarcity pick. :-)

Holliday was tempting at the turn, but I went with 5 category upside.
