We established earlier that the 4th spot sucks, it looks like the 11th spot does too. If you're feeling lucky several guys make sense here - Tulo, Bautista and Hamilton all have the upside for a late first round pick. But each comes with an assortment of risks. If you're feeling safer I think you go with the solid batting average and 40 dingers of Stanton. His lineup sucks and he doesn't steal. Upton is an intriguing pick at this point if you think joining his brother in the ATL will inspire a great season. And it might.
I think I would go Stanton, he has the highest downside, and it's not like doesn't have upside. .280+ with 45 HR isn't out of the question.
Ender wrote:He hit .290 with 37 HR and 6 SB with the worst lineup in baseball around him last year and that was while hurt and missing 40 games. If he happened to play on a good team and didn't have an injury risk I'd project him for 45 HR, 9 SB and 120 RBI. The fact he is in an awful situation is the only reason we aren't taking about him as a top 4 pick. End of the 1st round seems to work to be honest even if the lack of SB stinks.
