if you want to project wright as the 3rd best fantasy 3B behind m-cab and a-rod, i'm right with you, but putting him, a-ram and m-cab ahead of alex rodriguez is a bit of a stretch, IMO. :-)


He said NL.

I don't think A-Rod is in the NL though. :-D

The bad news for Wright and Ramirez is that Rolen will be back this season, so they can will have to fight it out for 3rd best. I'll go with Ramirez by a nose.

See, I don't think Rolen is going to come back and be the player he once was. I still expect good production, but not great. He'll rank behind the new crop of excellent 3-men.

I indicated that A-Rod and pujols were can't miss players...not that A-rod was in NL...I just wanted to make that clear so that others don't think i'm an idiot...my other posts do plenty to make me seem like an idiot! :-)

I'm a Cardinal fan and I love Rolen, but I don't see him out producing Cabrera or Wright or A.Ramirez this year...just my opinion.

Well, don't I look like a goober. :-°

Anyhow, everything I've seen has been pretty optimistic about Wright's upside, and considering how good he was last year, projecting him ahead of Aramis may not be out of the question, at least for fantasy purposes.

And if any NL 3B besides the other two listed out-performs A-ram, I've got to think it'll be Chipper.

Adrian Beltre won't be doing much playing in Seattle, I don't even think he'd do much anywhere else. He's still a fluke.

Mike Lowell I am liking, just that one off season last year(And 04 wasn't too good of a season for him either) but playing at Fenway with the Sox should help put up his offensive numbers a lot.

What about some of these:

Mark Loretta
Wilson Betemit (assuming Raffy is gone)
Khalil Greene

None of them will be a sure fire thing, but may be under the radar to produce some more value than many people perceive.
