Bautista's floor for HR is probably Morales' ceiling... plus Kendry's ankle still hasn't completely healed
As far as what players will be available, here are a handful of the highest rated non-kept players and their position eligibility: J. Upton (RF), J. Bautista (RF/3B), Ichiro (RF), B. Phillips (2B), J. Ellsbury (CF), R. Weeks (2B), K. Morales (1B)
There are 3 picks prior to my first one so there is a good chance Upton and Bautista are gone. For the other I'd guess either Ichiro or one of the second basemen.
I know it wisest to go best player available---I could always use a player at UTIL if I'm keeping a starter at the same position---but the dropoff at 1B makes me lean toward Morales if Bautista is gone. Is there someone else from that group you'd take over him, considering I have keepers for the following positions: 2B, 3B, SS, CF?
