How would you rank these NL 3B for next year only:
Beltre (still yioung, will he break out?)
Alfonzo (struggled until late last year)
Ensberg (fluke?)
Burroughs (probably most potential)

I would go:
1. Ensberg (yes theres some potential downside, but let the dude play! 907 ops last year!)
2. BUrroughs (especially in a 5x5 league; in that lineup w/ his OB skills, he could be sweet....just no power yet)
3. Alfonzo (if he's batting anywhere near Bonds)
4. Beltre ( I love the dodgers, and want him to break out....wish he would, but he's more likely to bat 220 than 290 now especially at the Ravine)

My two pennies......I have Ensburg as a bit of a sleeper if I don't get an early 3B.
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

Ensberg
Beltre
Alfonzo
Burroughs

I will argue with Burroughs having the most potential fantasy-wise. I don't see him ever contributing more than a good average.

Probably Ensberg 1st, although i don't think he's a 900 ops guy.
Beltre one day, will do something. I think he has the most upside, still only 25.

Ensberg (Potent line-up, Minute Maid Park, solid OBP, HR, avg, worth the risk)

Burroughs (becoming a more refined hitter, increase in value depends on a potentially dangerous S.D. offense that's still upgrading)

Beltre (not until he's traded or there's a real addition to their offense)

Alfonzo (uh...no)

Agreed ....
I believe Blum is gone, giving the job to Ensberg in that beautiful park.

Sean ..... a .300 hitter who will bat in the top of the order and score a ton of runs ..IMO ..

Beltre and Alfonzo ...... will not see my draft sheet for a very long time ... especially Beltre. Though I would have no quams about trading for Adrian at the All-star break. If he ever gets out of Chavez, he could top this list ...

I have to agree with Bell. Ensberg is the lone starter now, with Blum out of the picture, and Burroughs easily comes in second based on his upside and the lineup he's in. Beltre has potential to be good this year and he'll do it for the money (contract year I believe). Alfonzo...well, I think his fantasy-friendly days are over.
