.270/.325/.510 25 HR 85 RBI 75 R

Guess I'm not quite on the bandwagon yet, but definitely a player I would take a hard look at in the later rounds if he hangs around.

LOL. :-D Though I do agree most people here have known about him or been on his bandwagon for a while. Personally I probably won't take him too high since there are more established players out there at 3B and Wright will probably be a little on the overvalued side, but I wouldn't mind having him if the price was right. ;-D

This year? If you think McP will be better down the road that's one thing but it's hard to believe McP will outproduce him in 05. On top of that 3B is so deep McP isn't even worth drafting in 12 team leagues.

MickeyP is the starting 3rd baseman for one of the hottest hitting teams in baseball..you better believe he'll be drafted..

He may be drafted at the end of the draft as a flyer but he won't be starter-worthy in a 12-teamer. Here are 13 3Bs in no particular order that will outproduce him. I'd rather have any of these guys than a rookie.

Rodriguez, Alex
Mora, Melvin
Rolen, Scott
Beltre, Adrian
Huff, Aubrey
Wright, David
Blalock, Hank
Chavez, Eric
Ramirez, Aramis
Jones, Chipper
Glaus, Troy
Lowell, Mike

And then you've got the 2nd-tier guys like Blake, Bellhorn, Hillenbrand, Figgins, etc. who are likely to outproduce him also.

I like Dallas McP as well, but I think he's a lot further away from being an impact player like Wright was late last year and should be this year. In a few years these two will be something to watch!

Definitely. I'm not knocking McP, I just think there is so much talent at 3B this year there's no reason to target him in his rookie year.

ill jump on the wright bandwagon, but it might be a year early. Im predicting a slight soph slump, not the 30 HR season others here are projecting. I think 24 HR, 85 RBI with a .285 average is a realistic goal for next year. 2006 is another story.
