I didn't draft a 3B because most of the good ones were kept and by the middle rounds is wans't worth picking Zimmerman. So i waited and waited and loaded up on pitching instead. The FA 3B available are Mike Lowell, A. Beltre, M. Reynolds, H. Blalock, F. Lopez, M. Mora, M. Teahen, T. Glaus (injured until May/June).

I'm looking for someone who doesn't K a lot and draws a decent amount of walks. Glaus and Lowell fit this profile, but I'm worried about their injuries. If i pick up one of these guys, who should i drop??

Thanks.

I'd rank em in this order (although they are all very close and you could almost flip a coin):

Mora
Lowell
Beltre
Teahan
Lopez
Reynolds
(stay away from Glaus for now)

You've got some plenty of guys to drop IMO. I'd be fine parting with Madson, Hanson, Motte OR Ray

Can you take a look at mine?

I would pick up Beltre without thinking twice.

I like Beltre this year. He is in a contract year again and remember what he did last time he was in a contract year?

Mora
Beltre
Reynolds
Lowell
Lopez
Teahen
Glaus

Mora actually has a decent lineup around him, and with Markakis and now Roberts contracts finally accomplished for 6 and 5 years each that takes alot of pressure off them and see them playing more freely doing nothing but helping that lineup, and with the addition of Wigginton can do nothing but help... whereas that seattle lineup is about terrible... reynolds i think is in for a bigger year this year then last, but with you saying you don't want Ks that drops him... i really think your best bet is Mora...

help me out...
