Isn't 1B deeper than 3B?
I think it is about the same this year but 1B will always be deep.
I have to go with Tex. He is the better hitter already and has more potential than Blalock.
3B is deeper this year but there is no way in burning hell that it is deeper than 1B or OF.
The reason why people are higher on Tex is because he had a much bettter second half but people forget he was not very good in the first half. On the flip side, Blalock's first half was pretty much equal but faded badly in the second half due to an injury. I can understand why people would prefer Teixeira over Blalock but to say this isn't close is a serious mistake. BTW, they are exactly the same age.
