anyone with the last name roberts.
I like the Cameron pick. For people who draft their infield spots, starters, and relievers in the first 5 to 8 rounds, guys like Cameron, Hunter, Winn and Rowand all could give 20/20 seasons.
Of those, I like Winn. Batting second behind Ichiro (as I've heard him to be placed) and with Sexson/Beltre behind him, he shouldn't have a problem reaching 100 Runs, 80 RBI, 20 Steals, a .295 AVG and 10 to 15 homers.

Everywhere I read, I see that it is Jeremy Reed that is touted to bat 2nd behind Ichiro. I would actually bumb up Reed's stolen base potential to anywhere between 20-30. And if he is indeed batting 2nd in Seattle, he is a well-worth late round pick.
Also look to Chris Burke in Houston. Garner likes to be aggresive and I could see Burke getting 25-30 sb's.
Jason Bartlett is a sure sleeper. If he wins the job at short in Minnesota and he should given the competition he is up against he should give us 15-20 steals and be a cheap tought spot to fill. I have him for 1.00 .
If youre lucky and can get good power from 1B, 3B, SS and utl, you could try for an OF like
Any combination of these would be wicked as it provides a power and speed combo that cant be beat provided you have at least 3 other power slots. Add a 2B that can swipe 10+ and youll be set for SBs w/o sacraficing power numbers. You wont win the sb category, but you do OK in it.
This also has two advantages.
- All your SBs arent in one basket (pun intended). So if one gets hurt, youre not totally screwed in the sb category.
- Depending on which 3 you choose, you could get more HRs, and RBIs from the 3 combined than you would from having two 30HR hitters & a Pods/Pierre/Crawford type.
