out of that list i'd go with brandon moss. he put up 21hr 52rbi in ~250 PAs last year and he's been hitting the ball solid in spring training.... with platoon partner chris carter (* x-files theme *) gone to houston or whatever, he's gonna get a crack at being an everyday guy and if you remember last year when moss first came up and played he was putting up impressive power #s. he's definitely one of those young guys i've given a few roster spots to across my fantasy empire, and the reason is that the 21/52 in ~250-300 PAs hearkens the fact that unless he melts down if he stays pat or improves and gets 500+ PAs you're very well looking at a 30+ HR guy with 1b/OF eligibility. outside of that, your team doesn't seem to have any pure mashers and since moss relaizing his potential turns him into just that, i'd roll the dice on him and hope that he turns into a giambi as opposed to a jack cust.

take a look @ mine would ye!? viewtopic.php?t=456750

Reynolds would be my top choice. Moss a close 2nd.

Good luck

Thanks for help on mine

None of those guys.
Why?
Because you have no C.
Pick up a C.
Myers won't be up for a few months. Unless it's a keeper, i might ditch him.
