We are in the midst of our slow draft and I'm not sure where to go with this. . Please rank the following players, going at least 8 deep since have 7 picks until it's my turn. Everything out there is

I'd really like to add some upside/ youth to my team, so I'm thinking of going with Morrison or Tabata if they fall to me. In an OPS league, Morrison is helped by a high OBP, whereas Tabata is hurt. I also have UTIL kinda open as Raburn is a bit of a question mark, so I could go with whom I consider the best overall bat, Derek Lee. Beltran is interesting as a nice upside pick, but I'm not sure he really has knees anymore. With underwhelming options available, I'm willing to reach, so let me know if anyone seems interesting. Of course, I could always take Fuentes to pair with bailey, but I hate to draft a player with crappy skills until the very last rounds.

My team thus far:
- Geovanny Soto, Prince Fielder, Ian Kinsler, Hanley Ramirez, Kevin Youkilis, Shin Soo Choo, Shane Victorino, Torii Hunter, Ryan Raburn, Brandon Belt

- Roy Halladay, Jon Lester, Jered Weaver, Ted Lilly, Hiroki Kuroda, Matt Thornton, Chris Sale, Andrew Bailey

Non-OF Hitters: Derek Lee, Chone Figgins, David Freese, Chase Headley, Scott Rolen, Brett Morel, Alcides Escobar, Luke Scott, James Loney, Russell Branyan,

OF: Jose Tabata, Logan Morrison, Chris Coghlan, Dexter Fowler, Jason Kubel, Marlon Byrd, Garret Jones, Alfonso Soriano, Hideki Matsui, Tyler Colvin, Matt Joyce,

L. Morrison OF
J. Tabata OF
R. Soriano RP (can contribute wins/saves/K-IP)
C. Figgins 2B
J. Niemann SP
C. Richard SP
D. Fowler OF
M. Byrd OF

I avoided Derek Lee because he's aging rapidly and you don't need 1B that much with Fielder and Youk.

I'm on the clock... the only player picked was Clayton Richard.

Leaning Morrison, but still not sure. Ugh. Need help please! I whir'd a good deal...
