Oh come on, you know that he won't repeat last years numbers. He obviously wont hit .340 again (a massive fluke) and even hitting in the .315 range, his numbers would put him in the Aramis, Huff, Chavez, Blalock group, right where most have him.

Ah, Melvin Mora. I liked him more a few years ago when he was named Brady Anderson.

Everything clicked for him last year, but I don't expect a similar performance this year. This is the same guy who put up these 2002 numbers: .233/19 homers/64 rbis. Then in 2003 he missed considerable time with injuries. And last year - at 33 years old - he learned how to hit?

I know that nobody will agree with me (until after the season), but I'm expecting .280/20/60 rbis/80 runs/10 sb. Solid numbers across the board, sure, but nothing spectacular at so deep a position.

remember when a lot of people were predicting a bad second half for Mora last year? Hey maybe he's really THAT good.

Seems to me that a lot of you base your 2005 rankings solely on how players performed in 2004, not taking into account their consistencies and inconsistencies over a multi-year basis.

Beltre at #2? For three consecutive years (2001, 2002, 2003) he was terrible. Then suddenly a contract year rolls around and he tears the cover off the ball. Talk to me when he's in the last year of his deal with Seattle.

i agree with you that beltre is not at number 2 but even off of 3 years averages i still wouldnt want chipper at number 2, maybe number 5 or 6, and lowell is stil pretty high for those too, take into consideration his post all star game terrible stats the past few years, but i guess i am just taking into consideration ensbergs 2004 numbers and ignorig his 03 ones but the fact is lamb could possibly take his job and a backup should not be in the top 15

melvin mora is legit man, i've picked him off waivers for the last couple years, and he singlehandedly has won me leagues. his average is just awesome, and he is getting better and better as his lineup gets better and better. he will have another awesome year this year

My 3B rankings

1. Alex Rodríguez
2. Scott Rolen
3. Eric Chavez
4. Hank Blaylock
5. Aubrey Huff
6. Aramis Ramirez
7. Adrian Beltre
8. Melvin Mora
9. Troy Graus
10. Mike Lowell
11. Chipper Jones

I know everyone will say why is Beltre #7? The reason is that i just dont have enough confidence in him. He won't be playing for a contract and last year could have been a fluke. Call me crazy but, I would rather have guys like Huff and A-ram over him.
