For a dynasty I'd rank them:

Blalock
Chavez
Ramirez

If I ran a real MLB team I would take Chavez hands down. Better glove on defense, takes more walks, higher batting AVE ceiling, swipes a few more bases, and has been slightly behind Blaylock with his OBP% yet slightly ahead with his SLG% the past two years.

The A's arent letting Chavez go any where as they are keeping him long term so he will never benefit on par with the lineup support Blalock gets. Blalock has more HR potential as well and is 2 years younger. I believe Chavez could top Blalock in just about every category except HR's playing for Texas, but that is just segwaying to make believe land.

I believe Chavez is the better MLB 3B, but Blalock takes him in fantasy. They are both 1st tier 3rd basemen. Ramirez is good but at the top of the 2nd tier, not quite near their level unless he can replicate last years numbers for a couple more seasons while keeping a handle on his errors.


DYNASTY
Blalock
Chavez
Ramirez

Ramirez seemed to get a handle on all of his errors last year, but if he reverts anywhere near to his 2001-2003, 77 errors committed form, then he might not finish the last year of his contract in Wrigley. Further hurting his Dynasty value.

Though I'm a huge A-ram fan (and think he could easily have a couple 40 HR seasons ahead of him):

1) Blalock (park is perfect for him & he's signed for a 4+ more years there I believe)
2) Chavez (park is the differences between the two offensively; put Chavez in Arlington and he's hitting 40+)
3) A-ram (IMO One of the more overlooked fantasy baseball players -- still only 25-26 years old I believe)

it's a tough call between chavez and blalock for me, but i'd prolly take blalock cuz he's 3 years younger. i think they will post similar numbers. i'd like to see blalock avg go back to the .300 though. hank is in a better ballpark and in a better lineup. ;-D

once again i seem to be out of step and will defend my NL boy..i would take A-Ram over those 2 for next year..batting average chavez is obviously the weakest only once hitting over .282 in 5 years w/A-Ram hitting over .300 2 outa 4 years..blalock .277, .300, last yr .276....OPS in 04 again A-Ram leads 952 to 898 to blalock's 858... power ? A-Ram 36-103 compares favorably w/blalock 33-114..chavez 29-77....i would buy aramirez then hblalock and pass on echavez
