another Oakland player to keep in mind is Jed Lowrie. right now he only qualifies at SS but theres talk about making him a super utility. 2nd, SS, 3rd and 1st base vs lefties.

Good point. I don't expect more than 10 HR out of him. I was more thinking about his decent OBP in the PCL in 2011/12. He also flashed decent power over a short stint in Oakland last Aug. I think him putting up a 10/10 260/.310/.390 line is a reasonable projection, which is very solid for a cheap late round AL only option.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I was going to target Lowrie in hope that he plays third. Unfortunately, he will not qualify there for awhile (if he does play there). Donaldson is another possibility. Can't believe I might have to punt a position :~(

obviously, the top 3guys in mcab, longo, and beltre,,,,but assuming you miss out on those guys, i would be more than happy to roster machado, middlebrooks, lawrie, or moustakas

Well if these are all taken the easy pick for me is Chisenhall because I could easily see him outproducing some of those guys. I would certainly add Youkilis to the list as well since he is batting in the middle of a decent lineup.
