  1. Eh, I would certainly move Billy Butler up to 14/15 – in a DH role he will have a long career. Cabrera is great with glove and hits, top 10. If I had a choice between Rios or Cabrera – I would take Rios. Miller on that list – dead last (without knowing enough about the Korean middle infielders).


    1. Butler’s power was way down and the fact that it is arguable whether he can actually play 1B is tough. The DH role seems to be valuable as a rotation spot to save players and keep them healthy. Whoever signs him would want him in that position for 140+ games, and if he doesn’t show more power, he has very little value. Melky should move up, but Asdrubal certainly shouldn’t, in my opinion. Rios’ struggles this year were from an injury. Whoever signs him could absolutely cash in. Miller as a reliever is sex on a stick! Could and likely will get a four-year deal.
