Koskie by far. Former 20/20 player who can drive in 100 runs.

I'd take Koskie. Castilla is old and given where he played last year he could very likely disappoint in Washington.

he is also eligable at catcher wich can help in a tight spot.

Aaron Boone gone as well? he's high risk/high reward... but at this point in the draft if thats all that is left, little risk at all and you get multi-positional flexibility with him

I'd take Koskie, but I think you had to of waited too long. Your 1B isn't too great with Casey... I'm guessing you took Manny in the first, but who did you draft in the 2nd (I realize you aren't listing your pitching)..
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

Grab Koskie and prayer he gives you 500 plus AB's. He is definitely the best on the list.

Mueller would possibly be my second pick on that list by default. He was streaky last season but had health concerns. He's not going to give you the HR's of Koskie but hitting in that stacked lineup, should still give you good Run and RBI production.

Forget Castilla, he can only hit at Coors and you are best advised to stay well clear.

i'm going through a similar situation. i have the option for koskie at $26 or mueller at $9 in a keeper league.

i'm going with mueller...who gives you less HR but higher average. straight up i would like koskie -- marginally.
