I like Hinske because he is younger and proved he can play over a full season. Ensberg has never been as full-time player and i question whether he could keep up his gaudy stats from last year over an entire season.

ensberg; although he is older, blum is gone and he will get to play a full season. he showed us all what he could do given little playing time. imagine his stats as he grows and matures. he has good mentors in houston: bagwell, biggio, berkman and will develop good power which means more and more homers into the crawford boxes at minute maid. solid third baseman who will hit against subpar pitching staffs in the NL Central: Milwaukee, Pittsburgh, Cincinatti, St. Louis. Hinske will always have to go against the yankees and red sox who will basically buy the best from now on

I would go with Ensburg. He should get to play everyday now and I believe his numbers will only increase.

Id take the risk on Ensberg with his pontential and the chance to play everyday. He has a chance to hit over 30 home runs and 100 rbi's

I couldnt agree more, and Biggio and Berk both had "down years" plus he gets to ROCK those crappy rotations
Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

That's a tough call. I really don't like Ensberg's stats when he did start playing every day last year, but it's hard to say whether that just coincided with a slump. It's hard to pass up hitting second in that lineup though, and he could pass Hinske in a rout if his first half numbers were for real, so I'll give a slight edge to him. Hinske's going to be good this year though, this I have little doubt.

I like both players....but Ensberg has the better line up protection...and a better park to hit in....I would give him a slight nod..... :-)
