Nix, 25, was a long shot to have the bat for regular duty this year after posting a .793 OPS in his second Colorado Springs stint in '07. He is a skilled defensive player though. He was the last pick of the first round of the '01 amateur draft (just six after David Wright, and ahead of Dan Haren!). The hindsight game isn't fair but I like to play anyway.
