I would go with Burroughs, at least you know what you will get. Plus you know he will play every night.

Burroughs

I told everyone before the season Ensberg wouldn't be the everyday 3B (even before they got Lamb), but no one seemed to believe me.

burroghs. Ensberg will never reach his potential batting 7th and playing every other day. In burroghs you get a .300 average and a shot at 100 runs. Id take him.

I've been having the same dilemma. It's just too hard to avoid the temptation to put Ensberg in against the tee ball pitching the Cards have this year though. Today I'm doing both as I was able to stick Burroughs in at utility instead of Manny Ramirez. The reasons that Ensberg keeps sitting out have been sort of reasonable (soreness the one time, Vizquel batting outrageously vs. Suppan[??] or whoever it was) but the fact that there's SO MANY different reasons is really alarming. It's a long season though and I really want to hang onto him...at least until Dmitri Young gets better. The guy who was going nuts looking for a 3B swapped for Polanco so the market should still be there in a month or so when Young is back...
