Loney is okay... but his BABIP indicates he was lucky last year. I think of Votto type numbers with him, which is decent.
Kouz could be a nice steal. He did great after his slow start. The problem is that the ballpark sucks and he could be converted to the OF in a couple years.
The thing with Loney is that his minor league numbers back him up as a high average hitter. He led the minor leagues in BA 2 years ago, barely beating out.........Kouzmanof.
Upton, like you said, comes with great risk, and I'm not expecting anything over .260. If I get more, it's a bonus, but my cumulative BA to this point can cover that type of hit. That said, with Hanley, Weeks, Martin, Pence, and Upton onboard, it's looking like I should have the leg up in SBs even without Reyes.
Kouz I also like, as his second half was just phenomenal.
Haren is a guy I feel is underrated. He's moving to the NL, which always helps, and though he moves from Oakland to Arizona.... He also moves from Anaheim to San Francisco. He moves from Texas to San Diego...... I see that in his favor.
