Crawford
Either
Cruz
Hart

I like the look of the LA lineup and I think both those guys will have solid years with no worry about suspension or injury.

Ethier (plenty of RBI opportunities)
Crawford (injury concerns, but highest upside)
Hart
Cruz (possible PED issues along with inability to stay healthy over a full season)

I want no part of Cruz.
Hart would be a good late round add and free DL stash (then you'd get to add an extra player) after the draft.

If you want to take a risk on anyone, I'd go all out on Crawford. He's healthy, ready and should be freshest he's been in a long time. I expect a big year out of him.

Ethier is a solid performer you could fall back on.

Why you hate Cruz?
25 hrs 80 rbis not bad
Crawford has stunk 2 years in a row.
Ethier, 5 hrs the last 2 years versus LHP, .221 average

Agree with the rest...this is a tough list to rank.

Crawford (great pieces around him, he's either gonna have a great year or a complete bust and I like the former)
Hart (even injured for a bit, I think you could find a short fill-in and when he's healthy, he's good)
Ethier
Cruz (I don't trust a single person listed in any steroid report. Too risky and they could be gone for months in the blink of an eye...a lot like injuries but with warnings ahead of time)
