I don't like heavy Sandoval much and he is looking heavy this year.

That is true.

This middle 3B tier is perplexing.

Middlebrooks getting hurt today just makes it all the uglier.

I think Ill take Kyle Seager for similar numbers to Lawrie, 8 rounds later.

I think Headley finishes the year no 3 3B, only behind Miggy and Beltre. I just dont trust Longoria to ever be healthy, and Wright is sooooooo overrated

I won't ever touch Longoria but Wright is a complete stud. He is a stud in a pitchers park with a bad lineup around him which does certainly limit his value but he is easily one of the 4 best players at his position with all things being equal. Stick him in Texas and he is better than Beltre.

Longoria is the most overrated player in the history of fantasy baseball. I would much rather have either Headley or Lawrie in the 5th than take Longoria in the 2nd. When you consider that Hanley, Trumbo, Prado, Reynolds, Frazier etc are 3B eligible and all of the 1B there are (deepest position ever) the CI spot is stacked. Just wait on the CI spots and fill your MI and OF first.

I don't know, in the one league we are in together 3B got really dicey by the 11th round. I reached a little on Moustakas just because the options that were left were getting ugly in a hurry. Seager goes as a 2B, Frazier can very well go as an OF. Prado goes as a 2B etc. The list of actual 3B isn't all that deep in a 14+ team league with a CI. Top end MI and OF are sort of shallow but the mid to late end options for both are extremely deep, much deeper than 3B imo.

Wright is still overrated, stud in a pitchers park with a bad lineup is the exact description of Headley as well. We are talking fantasy though, there is no if he was playing in Texas, cause Wright isnt going anywhere. However Chase may be. Headleys' road numbers have been extreme splits. Hes a 300-30-100 guy almost any other city. Wright, doesnt have 30 hr power anymore it seems, or 20 sb capability

Chase will outproduce Wright in every category except BA imo.

RBI, R, SB are probably a push. Wright will hit for a higher AVG and more HR than Headley. That power spike simply is not for real, it is a Joe Mauer 2009 type spike. I would at least be tempted to take the under on 32 HR combined the next 2 seasons from Headley though I'd be forced to take the over. I'll definitely take the under on 25 for next year though.

Something I read on FanGraphs the other day has me worried about Wright. Hitting zero No Doubt HRs and ranking very high in the Just Enough variety last season. I hope he has a great 2013, but I'm getting scared of committing to him early.
