A vote for Goldy here. It seems the votes are pretty close. Goldy can contribute in all 5 categories and is still young. I like Craig but his health/durability is a slight concern to me. Its very close though.

I've never seen issues with Craig's health and only reason (I think) he has never apperered in more than 130 games was he had no where to play. He was being shuffled in and out of lineup as a backup 1B, 2B and OF however this year he is a lock to be in the starting lineup and I see 150+ games from him.

Ye Craig has been having issues staying off the DL the past 2 years. He also did not have any where to play the past 2 years and when they put him out there to play as an every day player he got hurt. It is hard to say. He is a risk but I think the risk is greatly outnumbered by what he is capable of doing. If he would of played the whole season last year he could have been a likely candidate for MVP.

Hmm I'd probably keep Craig especially due to the fact that he might have multiple position eligibility? Its easiest to find a 1b in the draft...
