Well, Sappelt isn't on the board, so I'm not sure how that has anything to do with what I'm saying. However, if Sappelt can really play CF and his arm doesn't limit him to LF, I think he can be a useful every day player and I would put him in the 3 to 5 range on this list. If his arm limits him to LF or DH, he's not my cup of tea. For the record, I have Sappelt at number 8 and Joseph at number 5. Realistically, Joseph should probably be a little lower than 5, but I just don't trust putting guys who haven't played full-season ahead of a guy who is a lot closer who seems like he'll make an impact so I have him ahead of Y-Rod and Hamilton who, like Sappelt, I consider bigger question marks. The reason Sappelt is lower than those two on my list has everything to do with the arm. If the arm limits him to LF, he really won't even be that useful as a reserve.
