H2H I'll take Votto and find my sb's somewhere else. Love the lineup and park. I can see Choo being a real help to that lineup at the top.

I go Cargo all day, his potential is Braun, and his floor is still 300+ 25/20

He's failed to reach 300/25/20 in each of the previous two seasons, so you might want to rethink how you use the term "floor". Seems like you meant to say "mean outcome".

At this point all three choices (Votto, Pujols, Cargo) seem about equal as they all carry #1 overall player upside with different kinds of risk. Just comes down to specific league format and personal preference

Also i think by the time we get through the first round of this exercise, we will already be at the allstar break

floor means assuming he doesnt get hurt, hes played 127 and 135 games, and been right around .300 and 25 hrs 20sb's even in that short time, if he plays 150 games he surpasses those numbers, and we saw what he was capable in a fully healthy year

and the fact that he is 27 this year, it could be a magical year

I agree, he's got huge upside. Probably the most of any player in this poll. He also has the highest chances of missing significant time due to injury of anybody in this poll, and that should be taken into account.

FWIW I voted for Votto because it's a safe-ish pick, but I'd have no argument against voting for Pujols, Cargo or Other (Prince, Stanton). And if you asked me tomorrow I might even vote differently. And I'd take all of those guys long before I'd even consider rolling the dice on Kemp. His SB days are gone, in my opinion, and we've yet to see him recover from his injuries from last season which pretty much destroyed his value in the second half of the season.
