The MLB draft is a crapshoot anyway and id wager that the most likely scenario for a 2nd rounder is a career that doesn't amount to what any FA with a qualifying offer has had and will have in the future. I'm not saying its without risk, on the off chance you land an all star with the 2nd rounder, but the risk is so minimal I would not even weigh the decision out if I'm bringing in a ML player who can help you win immediately.
I'd rather have the draft pick. If it were Hamilton that's one thing. Swisher isn't worth it in my opinion. Especially when victorino can play rf and requires no draft pick. Or even cody ross.
