3B Rankings....I know it's early but I'm drafting soon!! :)

Postby BravesGuy » Tue Oct 18, 2005 1:14 am

Some of you already know that I'm getting ready for a very early draft in a week and a half, I am going to be asking you guys to help out with some rankings....you have been great with all my other questions(I know I ask a billion) Ill start with just 3B and not overflow with making 8 different ranking threads.....

This draft will be for a keeper league with 12 teams. I tried to come up with a list of all the 3rd basemen that might be worth drafting.... I know my list is very far from great, but you have to start somewhere right?

3B Ranks(Didn't include Figgins, Cantú or F. López will consider them 2B)..Huff, Uribe has lost eligiblity.

Á. Rodríguez (NYY - 3B)
Mi. Cabrera (Fla - 3B,LF,RF)
A. Ramírez (ChC - 3B)
D. Wright (NYM - 3B)
E. Chávez (Oak - 3B)
S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
C. Jones (Atl - 3B)
M. Mora (Bal - 3B)
H. Blalock (Tex - 3B)
M. Ensberg (Hou - 3B)

T. Glaus (Ari - 3B)
N. Garciaparra (ChC - 3B,SS) - Do people not believe in him next year?

J. Crede (CWS - 3B)
A. Béltre (Sea - 3B)
D. McPherson (LAA - 3B)

C. Tracy (Ari - 1B,3B,RF)
S. Hillenbrand (Tor - 1B,3B)
B. Inge (Det - C,3B,LF,CF)
G. Atkins (Col - 3B)
P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS,LF)
C. Blake (Cle - 3B,RF)
C. Koskie (Tor - 3B)

These guys might be worth a late round pick, right? it is a keeper league...
E. Encarnación (Cin - 3B)
B. Upton (TB - 3B,SS)
R. Zimmerman (Was - 3B)
K. Youkilis (Bos - 1B,3B)

Can't argue the top 3.

After that I would move Wright up to 4th.
Chavez and Chipper are a push with Chipper being better when healthy.
Rolen (if healthy)
Mora
Ensberg (some like him a lot more)
Cantu is more of a useful 2b than a 3b like Figgins
Blalock
F. Lopez is more useful as a SS or 2b
Glaus
Nomar (I would not touch him personally)
Huff

You might check your position eligiblity for your league because Huff doesn't qualify at 3B in most leagues this year.

I would think that your rankings are just about right, but without more info, i.e. free agents, trades(of which there will be many because of weak FA pool), I see it like this:

Á. Rodríguez (NYY - 3B)
Mi. Cabrera (Fla - 3B,LF,RF)
A. Ramírez (ChC - 3B)
D. Wright (NYM - 3B)
E. Chávez (Oak - 3B)
S. Rolen (StL - 3B)
C. Jones (Atl - 3B)
M. Mora (Bal - 3B)
H. Blalock (Tex - 3B)
A. Huff (TB - 1B,3B,LF,RF)
M. Ensberg (Hou - 3B)

T. Glaus (Ari - 3B)
J. Crede (CWS - 3B)
A. Béltre (Sea - 3B)
D. McPherson (LAA - 3B)
J. Uribe (CWS - 2B,3B,SS) - I think he only will qualify at SS next year

C. Tracy (Ari - 1B,3B,RF)
S. Hillenbrand (Tor - 1B,3B)
B. Inge (Det - C,3B,LF,CF)
P. Feliz (SF - 1B,3B,SS,LF)
C. Blake (Cle - 3B,RF)

Out of those you aren't sure about, I would only consider the above

Good Luck!

Good Luck!

I agree with this, except moving Ensberg above Huff, who, lost 3B eligibility if I heard right.
