I think people are really sleeping on Ensberg this year.

If he's healthy, he could provide excellent value.

Edit-- this was meant for the 3B cheat sheet thread.

True, I think he will have 20-25 HR's.

Will he be hitting behind C. Lee?

With Berkman & Lee ahead of him he could get some great pitches to hit.

20-25 Hrs sounds about right, avg. won't be spectacular but he's a good late pick.

People seem to forget that he hit 17 homeruns in April and May before hurting his shoulder in early June. He's definately a sleeper source for homeruns next season.

Also, if you're league counts OBP/OPS he's much more valuable. Last season he became an OBP machine with 101 BB in 387 at bats. If he had batted just 500 times last season, he should've had 130 walks (6 more than last year's BB leader).

As I do my research I am finding he is a guy I am targeting for my Util slot based on where you can get him. I don't know that I'd feel great about waiting at third to pick him as my starting 3b, but a quaility backup if you miss out on the top 5. His bb/k ratio didn't support his low batting average so I'm beginning to think he just had a down year and can bounce back to his 05 numbers. I usually play in at least one league that uses Ks and BBs as cats which boosts his value as well because he gets a lot of walks and isn't as horrible in Ks like some of the other high walk guys.
