based on the streakyness?


I agree that you could wait on someone like Chipper or Mora and still get close to equal production, if a little more risky.

I thought that the progress he showed in 2004 was going to be a sign of things to come, but I was very disappointed in his 2005 season. 2005 seems like a giant step in the wrong direction. I won't be specifically avoiding him, but I won't be targetting him in any of my drafts either. I don't see a breakout on the horizon.

But shore nuff, he's going into his eigth full season and only just turned 28. Crazy! I agree that his supporting cast does have the potential to be a little better, but what about the years he played with Tejada, Giambi, Damon, Dye, etc? He's had some pretty darn good players along side him in that batting order before and still seems to put up very similar numbers year to year, barring injury. He seems a lock for .275-90-28-100-8 with 30 doubles and a .350 OBP. Not HOF numbers, but very solid in the realm of fantasy. I like him around the ninth round in 10-12 team roto leagues......

I love Chavez this year, and was trying to keep him quiet for a reaston. SHHHHH!

I'd actually bump your numbers a little bit. 34HR and 110RBI is where I have him.

Chavez, Beltre, and Aramis Ramirez are three people who a much younger than most people realize, due to the number of years they have played at the major league level.

I agree with you. I'm expecting some big numbers from Chavy this year barring injury. Your prediction looks accurate. I would expect 34-36 homeruns and a solid average to go along with it. I have him as my 5th third basemen, behind A-Rod, Wright, Cabrera and A-Ram.

i'm staying clear. his stats are nothing fantastic plus i had him last year and he was a complete blackhole the first few months. that is the exact opposite of what you want in h2h.

I'm just going to stay clear of this thread.

Why bother ranking Figgins amongst 3B when his value his much higher at 2B? Anyone who takes him as a 3B are not utilizing his position eligibility.

I agree...I think this year many people will label him as a bust of some sort who failed to meet expectations. I'll gladly wait till round 7 or so and grab him.

Looking at those lists I have to say this is a great year to take Blalock.

Only negative on Chavez is the injury situation wrt his shoulder. I still like him as he may be streaky, but generally produces. But the injury to that shoulder sends up warning flags.

Eric Chavez no longer intends to undergo right shoulder surgery. He said he'll carefully be monitored next year and significantly reduce his throwing in spring training and pregame work.
That doesn't seem like our idea of a good plan. Chavez's shoulder was supposed to be more of a problem defensively than offensively last season, but perhaps it had quite a bit to do with his disappointing performance in the batter's box. The decision not to have surgery makes us less optimistic that he'll bounce back.
