So much for the depth at 3rd base.

7 out of the Top 12 rated 3B are hitting below .250.

2 of them (Chavez and Lowell) at .202 and .196 respectively. Especially not good for Lowell owners considering he's a career .300 plus hitter in April and not much better than .265 the rest of the year.

I realized that when I was looking for someone to fill in for Chipper. I'm counting my blessings with him (as long as he doesn't miss any more time).

I'm a moderately happy Blalock owner. Today's 3/6 puts him above .260. He'll get better, I'm just glad I'm not stuck with Beltre. Hank looks like Babe Ruth compared to him. :-D

I picked up Hinske to fill in for Chipper. Not great, but the big guy scores some runs.

Blalock, Lowell, and Wright here. Never thought I'd be getting the best production out of my last-round pick. (Don't ask how Wright made it to the last round. It's a small league, but that's ridiculous when 16-18 3Bs are being taken in this league.)

Never thought about that till just now but wow, they are sucking it up early on here. There've been some let downs at 1B too I think. Thome not doing too well, Teix was slumping for awhile there too... Alot of the big bats have been kinda slacking
...Boston papers now and then suffer a sharp flurry of arithmetic on this score; indeed, for Williams to have distributed all his hits so they did nobody else any good would constitute a feat of placement unparalleled in the annals of selfishness. -Updike

I thought I would be fine at 3B with Lowell but just traded AJ Pierzinski for Koskie just in case.
