I picked Rollins, it looks like you have the corners covered with Craig/Longo/Encarnacion and I have them all within $1 of each other, well not the arm.

I don't like taking Rollins because I think he is #3 out of those hitters but you already have your other positions filled. What other SS are behind Rollins? I either go with him or I grab Headley to help back up Longoria when he eventually hits the DL.

Shortstops left would be jeter, Aybar, Escobar, A Ramirez.

I was leaning towards headley for insurance. I also have another pick 5 spots later where I could grab Rollins or scherzer. Headley will be gone

The I think I would take Headley. If for some reason Rollins isn't there, then I wouldn't stress about it. Plus if things get bad you could always deal a 3B for a SS.

Well if Cespedes is available you take him.
Headley's year wasn't a fluke and besides they are swinging the fences in so that should help :)

It was a fluke of sorts.
A 21% hr/fb ratio, compared to a 10% career norm.
11 hrs that barely were hrs.
