Cantu vs. Ensberg

Postby Brendo » Thu Feb 16, 2006 9:51 pm

i have a gut feeling I'd pay for either one of their career years, but still i have to choose.

Cantu has a better lineup around him (or more specifically, in front of him)

Ensberg plays in the better park

Cantu has position eligibilty, Ensberg a little bit more history.

So......whaddyathink?

the thing some of you are missing, with cantu, is that, uh ..
he hit 3rd for the majority of the year,
which i dont see him doing.

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

The thing is, Ensberg has shown inconsistency already, cantu has not.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

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.
