I think I would take Longo if I saw him in round 3 without thinking twice. Injury prone only lets me let a player of that caliber drop so far... and usually if I see Longo in the 3rd round i jump on it (Just like I did with Josh Hamilton this season).
It will be interesting to see where Hanley Ramirez goes now that he has regained SS elibility for next season.
I would also love to see where guys like Lawrie and Moustakas go next season.

Like most, I haven't done 2013 rankings yet, but I'd probably take these 3B over him:
Miggy Bautista Wright
Personally, I'd lump him in with Beltre and Hanley as the next tier. Someone, though, is bound to overvalue him based on his potential and the fact that he's turning the magic age of 27.
Bautista won't have 3b eligibility next year. I don't even think he's started 1 game there this year.
This. And it sucks. I have him in a keeper league and wish he could have kept that 3B eligibility. Not that having a killer OF hurts but it will be difficult to replace his 3rd base production with someone else of consequence in the draft. Maybe I'll focus on Frazier/Middlebrooks for next year. I see Trumbo, Headley, Rodriguez, and Lawrie being grouped fairly close and being midly keepable in a 12 team, 6 keepers league.
