Why? I also have Raul Ibanez as a non-sexy dependable OF to round my 4 OF spots. My 5 keepers going into the draft were Hanley, Utley, Teixeira, Mauer, and Peavy.
I love all their potential, but it's very dangerous to go into the year with 3 unproven breakout candidates. Yes if they all break out you will be atop the standings, but if they don't improve as much as you expect you'll be near the bottom...I always try to have at most 2 breakout guys in my entire starting lineup, let alone 3 in my OF.
Yeah, its a risk, but I love the potential of all these guys and it'll be fun to track them throughout the year! Makes the game a bit more exciting!
