From what I've read Hart appears to be the favorite at the moment.

I'd go with Jimenez over Hart or Anderson anyway. Viva La Jimenez!

The knock on him is he seems to be a slow starter each year.....considering Anderson doesn't have a starting job locked you should look at him....his overall stats aren't bad for a 2B.

That could actually be good...then you can get him cheaper while he's 'getting warmed up'...

That'd only bump him up, I think. Another drawback though is having to play the Cubs and Astros a lot. There's a bunch of good pitchers to batter his stats.

His numbers all depends on Griffey, Kearns and Dunn. THe guy will hit 15 HR's and steal 20 bases but he will not score any runs if those three do not finally start living up to their potential and stay off the DL. I have him rated at about $14 right now but he could shoot up to $20, or drop to $5 if those other three pan out/don't pan out.

Jimenez is going to have a beast of a season in 2004. He is definately someone to keep in mind for 2b. He could realistically be a top 10 option there.

Don't listen to Bell, he took Jimenez over Vidro in a Cafe mock :-o

But seriously, Jimenez is an improvement over Marlon Anderson. Unless Anderson gets all the playing time, which he won't.
