Who would you take in a 5x5 H2H keeper league?

I'm sure I will be the only one but I would take a gamble with Bay. I think his upside is as high as Maggs at this point and he is completely healthy.

I think the value for all three could be pretty close this season but Bay and Rowand are relatively unproven. I would most likely draft Magglio but with the injury concerns I wouldn't have a problem with someone selecting Bay. If Bay and Maggs are still available it's probably a little too early to draft Rowand.

I'm definitely leaning towards Bay right now. He's several years younger than Maggs and the injury obviously is a huge concern. As for Rowand, I just don't know enought about him. Is he a legit .300 hitter with 20 SB potential, or were last years numbers out of character?

I would have definetly have to go with Bay in that situation. He has 30-100 within reach with a handful of steals, and seems much less of a risk than Rowand or Maggs.

I like Bay the best. He has lived up to expectations that I always heard about him. I like Magglio and am glad to have him here as a Tiger, but I would place him just slightly behind Bay. I'm being cautious of Rowand. I would draft Rowand, but not as high as I've been seeing him go.

Bay's K totals scare me too much for this year. I'd take Maggs, then Rowand, then Bay. I am not saying Bay will definitely crash, what I am saying is that he Ks too much for me to risk for this year. If he performs well for another year, then apparently he is just one of those types of players that is just a free swinger....but I want to see it first.

He K'd 129 times in 120 games!

Again, not saying he'll suck, but that's a risk I'll avoid given his draft price this year.

I like Maggs here. He reported 2 days early and participated in every drill and reported no pain. If Young, Sanchez, and Guillen are all healthy and playing to the best of their ability, he has a HUGE payoff.
