i mean, he could, but with rocco, carl, bj, huff and possibly delmon .. i wouldnt doubt cantu hits 5th or 6th
less rbi less AB maybe less HR?
but who knows
i believe he is legit and thats why i drafted him in every league last year (my buddy hybrid taught me well)
No way Cantu is hitting 5th or 6th.. A 28 HR, 117 RBI, .300 hitter will not get bumped down there..Just as most publications and websites say, Cantu will bat 3rd with Crawford and Lugo ahead and Huff behind him helping him surpass his 05 levels.. GO w/ Cantu!
Ensberg is usually about 10 picks before Cantu in most drats I have seen, so there may be a way to get them both. You're not at the end of the round are you? If your picks are 6 apart or less, I would gamble on Ensberg first and hope Cantu comes around to you.
If this is a less specific question then I think it is, then I think Ensberg projects slightly better, but not by much. Ensberg has more HR, but probably less RBI.

I think both will regress this year compared to last years break out performances. I expect them to be in the .270-280 25HR 85RBI range. Since Cantu has 2B eligibility, I'd go with him first then Ensberg.
