For me its gotta be Prior.

It will likely cost a round 2 or 3 pick to get him.

Probably Randy Johnson, although he was a bigger risk last year. He's shown he can still put a ton of innings on his robo-knee.
He'll cost you a first-round pick, but a repeat of last season's numbers would equal, I kid you not, 30-plus wins with the Yankees.
He's moderate-risk, really high-reward. Bump that risk up if you take him in the first six picks.

I love RJ with the Yanks but the 5-man rotation and modern bullpens has marked the end of a 30 game winner. 25 wins is as impressive now as 30 wins used to be.

I myself don't think Prior is such an injury risk. His injuries were mismanaged horribly last year and if he would have been diagnosed properly and rested properly instead of being rushed back, he wouldn't have the tag I believe. Plus he has a tremendous work ethic and is likely in great shape to start the year.

I do worry about Pujols a bit with his heel deal. When people play through pain, they can easily injure something else by overcompensating. I hope Larussa has the sense to rest him at opportune times.

luis gonzalez? unless that's a joke he is D.O.N.E.

Anyone that is suckered into J.D. Drew should be ashamed. I'd be shocked if he plays 100 games.
