I'd take Braun > Kemp/Corbin. But as I type this, I'm not feeling sure about that order. Either one is better than Ellsbury alone.

I would take Ellsbury....elite speed guys getting harder to find and Kemp has been pretty bad for a year now and who knows which Braun we are getting next year due to the PED issues plus he wasn't running much this year.

Ellsbury might have lowest ceiling but i think he'll give you highest return.

here's mine:

I agree 100% with him. I think it all depends on how you feel about your team going forward...could you hang onto 2nd place with Kemp? I mean either way, Wright is done, so only if you think you could lose 2nd, would I go Ellsbury.

Then I would keep Harvey, Kemp and either Stanton or Hanley (depending on your preference, unless Harvey has some issues in spring training next season)

Thanks for your help!

Thanks for the help on mine!

I agree with the majority here in that Ellsbury is the clear choice if you're afraid of dropping out of 2nd. Additionally, he's going to help in 3 of the categories you mentioned that needed to jump for a chance at first, so for this season it has to be ellsbury.

I think for next year though, Braun is the better choice. Kemp probably has higher potential but at this point he's starting to become an annual injury risk whereas Braun's production has been steady since his rookie year.
