When you are talking FA pickups, I usually go for upside over stability as you can usually go back and get the other player. Therefore, I go Jackie Bradley Jr. over Aaron Hicks, even though, on average, I think Hicks outperforms Bradley. But Bradley's potential is so much higher.

Hicks for me. Speed to burn and atop the Twins order.

Chris Young is a platoon player in a pitcher's park. Not even close.

Bradley and Hicks might be close. But Bradley is projected to bat like 8th on the Red Sox and Hicks is projected to bat leadoff. It's going to mean more at bats and Runs/SB opportunities for Hicks.

Hicks for me if you need runs and steals.
Bradley for power/OBP
