If you want a safe draft you have the right order. However if wilson stays fully healthy, which is a big IF, he will be the best of the 3 because of helton and coors.

call me crazy, but I have to go with this:

Giles
Wilson (could be 1st or 3rd due to injuries)
Jones

That would be my order...but if my OF were stacked and I were willing to gamble, I would go: Andruw, Preston, Brian. Just depends on the situation I guess...either way though, Druw first.

I'd rank 'em Giles, Preston, Jones.

I'll take Giles upside over Jones, who'll give me .270/30/100 if I'm lucky. With a little research on the FA wire you can find someone to give you stats like that. I'd rather take a chance on Giles regaining his old form than settle for stats like 'Druws.

Now, I'd draft Giles over Andruw straight up. Preston should and almost definitely will be available after Andruw. With Preston's upside and the pure joy known as "Coors Field", I like him to beat 'Druw's numbers. The knee is still a concern, but his potential makes him a worthwhile investment, imo.

Andrew - the only one that has a chance at 40 hr's & 100 rbi's
Giles - right field in SD is death to lefty power hitters
Wilson - big injury concern (draft late )

That's a pretty bold statement.

A. Jones has never hit more than 36 home runs.

B. Giles only fell 6 rbi's short of 100 last year and that was his 1st full year back from a major injury. He's come the closest of anyone (of these 3) to hitting 40. I'm not sure that 1 year is long enough to say that Petco is an impossible field for a lefty power hitter to be successful in. Giles had more rbi's than Jones last year, and only 6 less jacks.

C. Look at Preston's '03 #'s. He's more than capable of hitting over 100 rbi's and if he's healthy he could flirt with 40hrs.

Jones may be the most likely to hit 40, but it's not out of the question that one of these other guys could do it. Especially Preston, if he's healthy.

Yep, look at Preston's '03. The boy hit a whopping .239 the second half. Scary part is that he could do that for an entire season. :-o

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd take Giles and Andruw over him unless I really, really wanted to gamble. :-o

Not to mention Preston's lifetime .265 average. :-o

Andruw will be 28 this year.

Giles will be 34.
