i'm from chicago, and oh let me tell you, i wanted byron leftwich. but nope. the only thing i can say is that we got a great deal on him, as he can sit on the bench for $2.5 mil/year. that's not even jim miller money <g>
my gawrsh, this is a fun question. preston's got a bandwagon going, but i don't know whether he was injury plagued or just stinking it up last year, but he was underwhelming. i think he's one of the bigger wastes of talent in the game. realistically, you have to hope that preston gets on a roll and rides it out. if so, 30/30 is possible, but i wouldn't bank on him to hit any higher than .280. i think andruw's more of a solid player, more of a guaranteed 25-30 HR and probably a few more RBIs, but i do believe that preston has more upside in terms of talent and coors field.
so it's really a matter of wanting to jump out on a limb or stay with a safer pick. good luck!
