Hmm, tough one. Both Wright and Holliday carried me to a title from the 6th playoff spot last season so I man-love them both.

Would have to go with Wright, though I wouldn't be disappointed with Holliday either.

I think it's a toss-up between Hanley, Wright, Holliday, or even Jimmy Ro. Probably in that order too but can't go wrong with any of them. I wouldn't rule out Pujols either. Who the heck knows, it's a lot of preference through the first round this year looks like.

I don't think people are going to be jumping out of their seat to get the number 2 pick. As you said most people think it is the worst pick in the draft. I wouldn't count on someone wanting it, but I could be wrong. Personally I would take Hanley, but as many people have said you can't go wrong with most first round players. If I couldn't decide I would put names into a hat, and draw a name. :-D

In mocks, I've drafted Holliday, Wright or Hanley but mostly Hanley. I've avoided Mcab solely for the reason that it "seems" too early to draft him, but is it really? If you want to go with the safe pick and 30/30 numbers, you draft Wright. If you're not worried about the steals, you could go with Holliday or MCab who will probably put up very similar numbers. If you want pure talent and monster numbers across the board and you can look past the injury-risk whispers and the loss of MCab, you go with Hanley. My draft is coming up in three and a half weeks and I'm praying that I don't get the 2nd pick. Actually, I don't want any of the top 4-5 picks. If I did have the 2nd pick, I'd probably still go Hanley and hope I could get Teixeira at the end of the 2nd round.

It's a tough pick, but I'd go with Wright. But I think Holliday and Hanley are good picks, too.

I don't know how it's an "easily". Hanley outperformed Wright in nearly every category last year. Wright had more RBI due to Hanley batting leadoff, but Hanley beat him everywhere else and tied him in HR (30-29).
