100 30 100 285 is terrible (granted he gets no SB)
But yes, I agree that Wright probably has the higher ceiliing, he may not reach it next year. But I agree w/ your projections . I'd take him as my the #4 3B w/ Aram, MCab & Arod ahead of him.
your sarcasm is warranted, but blalock really is inconsistent. perhaps it's because he's waiver material when away from texas AND against lefties (i believe he hits like .200 with no power in those situations). basically, he's a platoon player in h2h leagues (like many colorado players tend to be), which is what i usually play. i suppose in roto it doesn't matter as much, since you can just leave him in and know you'll get 30 100 .280 at the end of the year. but i'd imagine even then it'd be more advantageous to platoon him out for away games. he also doesn't walk much, which lowers his OPS, and in my league we use both walks and OPS (instead of AVG). i know most leagues don't use those cats, but it just goes to show he's a step below most of the other top 3B that were mentioned earlier.
as for where you said about wright, i agree with everything except personally i'd take wright 3rd, before aramis and only behind arod and mcab.
