Yeah, I can't wait to have someone grab Braun and push Atkins up another few picks :-D

I think I took Aram in the debate before the season. I think they are still very close and right now, I would give the slight edge to Atkins.

I'll agree that it was and is still very close. But I'm still going to stick with Aram. I look for him to show more power next year, why he didn't this year is still somewhat puzzling to me. He has legit 40 HR potential to go along with a solid average, you don't find those guys too often. I'd be happy with either at 3rd base next year. Both will probably be better value than Braun, who might cost a 2nd round pick.

aramis always seems banged up, especially with wrist injuries, which always sap hitters' power. i like the younger, more upside, more games at coors, garrett atkins ahead of aramis.

This is basically how I feel as well. One guy is on the upswing of his career, the other I feel is ready (if not already began) to decline.
