Those are all good choices. However, I'd take Ortiz or Teixeira.

Thome - Extremely underrated this year
Ortiz - I doubted him last year, I won't do so again
Teixeira - Give him another year or two and he'll move up the list
Delgado - I want him to prove he can hit outside of Toronto before I choose him over the other 3 guys who I have no doubts will produce.

Ive said it in other threads and I'll say it again: Tex is your man. You know he will reproduce his numbers from last year at the very very least, and he has a very high ceiling, even for this year. I have him projected for 40 HRs and about 105 RBI, but I wouldnt be surprised to see him go 50/130. The other guys have that type of talent, too, but all of them have questions surrounding them...
Thome is old, and has been injured,
Delgado is moving to a new league and less hitter-friendly park,
and Ortiz is just plain fat :-D

Take Tex and run ;-D

id take ortiz for a 1 year league. The guy put up great numbers last year and will have all his protection back. He covers the plate very well and doesnt just swing for the fences like other guys his size.

its very close though, and my rankings of these 4 guys change on almost a daily basis.
