yeah...in a keeper I'd take davis in a heartbeat. Wouldn't mind zimm either, but I probably would not keep him unless he really broke out this year

I care less about the power he is showing and more about the K/BB ratio. Guess what? It still sucks. 22 Ks : 9 BB this spring. 88 Ks : 20 BB last year. 288 K : 84 BB in the minors. Until he figures out what balls and strikes are, I believe his average is going to stink.

chipper jones,
chris davis,
garrett atkins,
aubrey huff,
ryan zimmerman.

However, if it's a 14+ league in which 3B players are not "plentiful" then I'd rather have Davis or Atkins over Chipper due to the fact that if you draft Chipper you have to burn another mid level pick on another 3B as Chipper is bound to miss 40+ games.


Agree with the order but:
Chipper and a late pick to the bench, like Kouzmanoff, Lowell, Crede. They all can get hot, and theres no insurance that any higher placed mid level guy wont get cold, when Chipper goes down.
And you have to pick someone to the bench anyway. So why not a reserve 3b.

Uh, since when is 22:9 an awful ratio? Thats reasonable. .

I can understand thinking his average will be worse than last year, but really, why should anyone expect .250 when his career low at any stop for any amount of at bats is .277 with a ~.300 career mark? Its not like the k/bb is something that mlb pitchers exposed in him. There is some control over babip, he hits a lot of hard line drives and thus gets an average boost over some comparable hitters.

.255 may happen, but its the downside, not the upside as if he were adam dunn. Between the 5 projections listed on fangraphs the average is .278. That doesn't really "stink", its alright.

In my main league I drafted ARod, Chipper Jones and then Mike Lowell. I'm sure 2 of the 3 will be healthy at most points in the season. I got Lowell very late just as insurance.

As for Chris Davis, that divisions pitching could be pretty terrible with all the injuries to the Angels. I like Ranger hitters in general.

In a redraft ,Chipper when healthy is a level above all these guys rather easily.
Davis is next ,I wouldn't be shocked if he becomes becomes a bust this season

Does Michael Young fall in there at all with his 3B eligibility coming soon? I plan on sliding him into 3rd with Stephen Drew at SS.

In a redraft I think it depends on what your first 4, 5 or 6 picks look like because I could see myself going any number of ways with these guys....in a keeper its Davis without question.
