Sleeper 3rd Base options?

Postby mnsoxfan » Sat Feb 19, 2005 11:52 pm

I am a first time Fantasy Baseball owner. I decided to try the MLB Ultimate Fantasy Baseball league. What I am looking for are some ideas on possible sleeper 3rd baseman. I had 50 million to pick my team and I am down to crumbs for my third baseman. Any Ideas??

I'm not sure what the $ values are. Maybe if you listed some of the options you can afford we could help you better.

I'd guess that Dallas McPherson is the cheapest 3B that could have an impact and there is also Garrett Atkins in Colorado.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

I actually like Ensberg for pennies, but I don't know how much you have to spend our how cheap he is. I also like Felix, McPherson, Freel, and maybe the cheapest would be Randa...who could put up better than his normal numbers being in Cinci.

If you can get McPherson for crumbs, he's your man.

you have to be able to get Atkins on the cheap - could be a stud at Colorado ( I did get Beltre for $1 in 3 leagues last year). B-)

Roll the dice on that guy from Japan who might play third base for the Dodgers this year.
