Wright or Hanley.

I'd probably go Hanley. I think he's shoulder should be fine given his age and I don't think the loss of MCab will have a huge impact on Hanley's numbers. Plus, you gotta love the 30-50 potential of the young SS. Wright is probably a slightly safer choice though.

I'd take Wright.
Contributes in all 5 cats, young and still improving, and no major changes in his surroundings.

Ya id take Wright too.

I also like MCab but most may think #2 is a bit high for him. He's gonna put up huge numbers this year in that Tigers lineup.

Another vote for Wright. I would take him over Hanley easily.
There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Definitely. He's not #2, but a solid 1st round pick.

I'd take Wright by a hair over Hanley. He's just the safer player especially given Hanley's shoulder concerns.
