Some good names. Medica was 25 playing in AA, so I wouldn't put too much stock in him being better than Alonso. Y. Gomes had a really high babip, he's a .250 hitter with some pop, he will be on and off the waiver wire all of 2014. Blackmon has little power and speed, and that god awful BB% and K% means stay away. Blackmon doesn't walk enough or he could be D'Aza. As he is, if you need OF help and the rockies are playing a long homestand he may be worth picking up, but he doesn't even have 15/15 upside and has some real BA risk. The rest I am on board with, except gutierrez.
