Upton
Zimm
Weaver
Those are the 3 clear ones to me.

Too much risk with Ellsbury, I like A-Gon but I'm thinking there's going to be nice 1B to draft, Grienke's good too but I prefer Weaver and Bruce is who he is, I don't see him getting much better. I think it's better to go with an elite 3B than Bruce. Chances are there isn't going to be a better 3B in the draft than Zimm in this 14 team league, that's why you have to go with Zimm over Bruce.

Zimmerman is 2 years younger and plays 3B. Unless you think Agon is going to start hitting 30+ HR I'm not seeing a big difference.

Zimmerman can't stay healthy and Agonz has missed a total of 7 games in the last 6 years. That creates a pretty big different right there. Also Agonz is OF eligibile.

I'd also take Agonz over Upton and Bruce pretty easily.

Zimmerman has trouble staying on the field so there is some risk there. The OF eligibility for Agon is gone after this year. If you have him over Upton you must be projecting more than 30 HR.

this makes for a interesting debate, while its not 100% Agonz will be in the draft this year (he can technically be kept but that guys team is stacked with other keepers like kershaw, price, harper, wright) i am curious to see how people have him stacked up to the likes of zimmerman and upton. two guys who will def be in the draft and probably around when i pick.

Id probably lean Zimmerman over Adrain because the drop off at 3b in my league will be huge after zimmerman where as at 1b i can get ike, freeman, goldschimt, who i can grab in round 2 or even 3 possibly. But zimmerman is a huge injury concern and id hate to base my team for the next 3 years on someone who plays 100 games a year. This is tough.
