Are these two worth keeping?

The most proven free agents in my league are probably Edgar Martinez and Rich Aurilla. Should I get one of them? And there is still Corey Patterson but Edgar and Rich have put up All-Star type numbers in the past, so they intrigue me.

I probably shouldn't give you any advice now, but I think Aurilia will be fine, and TSN agrees with me:
Jun. 16, 2002 - 10:39 p.m.
Aurilia is back to his 2001 All-Star form after returning from arthroscopic surgery to remove bone chips from his right elbow. Before the operation, Aurilia could not extend his arm. That made him vulnerable to outside-corner pitches. He either missed them entirely or rolled over his left wrist, resulting in grounders to the left side. Now that he can extend both arms, he can stay back and try to hit the ball up the middle and the other way. That makes it much tougher to pitch to Aurilia, whose average, homer and RBI totals will rise. (Henry Schulman/TSN)

I think he'll post top 8 numbers at shortstop, that's for sure. Edgar is useless for the next week anyway.
