Nady with 3B Eligibility :-L
That would be an EPIC steal of a WW pick up.

Tex is a gold glover, you don't move gold glovers who are being paid 20+ mil per year

If Tex ends up at 3B, I will shoot myself for trading him in my keeper league. :-C

My guess is that the original :-? referred to the fact that Nady at 3B isn't really a ton more valuable than Nady at OF. If Nady stays healthy (which is big if, considering his history), he'd likely get you Beltre-ish numbers. Not exactly the most EPIC pickup...

I'd say he has the same talent as Beltre but on a much better team. If Beltre was traded to the yankees and started at third id consider him an epic pick uup too. 3B with 300ish avg's 90+ rbi's and 20+homers are great pickups.

Wasn't A-Rod a gold glove shortstop before being moved to third base ;-7

I know, but those guys would have been a drop in the bucket considering what they were spending anyway... At the very least a replacement/upgrade over Betemit...
