i would just like to know what rounds you would take these guys in a normal league: Brian Roberts, Luis Castillo, and D'Angelo Jimenez. Yes this is a keeper league im in but keeping these guys for next year is out of the question so please tell me where you would take them based on how well they will do next year not the future

Your last comment is great advice. I don't see any of them being that special and better than the others, other than perhaps Roberts, so you can wait if those are all you have. I usually grab a 2b early because of the scarcity there.
But weren't you a little confused by Rico's question? Tell me about next year, not the future?
I don't know..... I don't see Roberts improving very much, if at all, over last year's numbers. And last year's numbers weren't better than what I think Castillo will do... but predicting a breakout year is hard to do, so ya never know. They should be about the same in every cat with Castillo having the advantage in BA by about 30 points.

There's no doubt Brian Roberts will be the opening day 2B for the Orioles....I personally have Jiminez ranked the highest of these three. I think he has the most potential of these guys, if he could put it all together his talent would allow .290/.380/.420 with 15+ HR power.
