Draft Ellis if you're expecting his career numbers:

If you would honestly rather put greater weight on his last 300 ABs than his 1300 total career ones be my guest, but expecting 20 HRs (or 90 RBI) is begging to be disappointed. He's a decent player, nothing more, and since Ellis has never really been a base-stealing threat, he's just not going to have that much value. The number Rynman posted will end up resembling Marcus Giles's line a lot more than Mark Ellis's. I'd say he should be one of the last 2Bs taken in your draft if he even ends up drafted.

I think he can pretty much repeat. He's in his prime years (28 I believe) and put up those numbers immediately after coming up a bad, bad shoulder injury in which he missed a lot of time. He won't put the stats up at the speed he did last year, but I think he'll end up with similar numbers. The lineup's improved and he'll be at the top of it.
