2B - barfield/kinsler/kendrick - who do you draft?

Whichever one drops the farthest. I have a list of about 10 guys at 2B that are more or less the same value and all 3 of those guys are on the list. When that list thins down to 2-3 players left I'll grab who is there still.

If for some reason all 3 of those guys were still there I'd probably grab Kinsler because of his park, the Angels are going to struggle to score this year and Barfield will probably bat 8th or 9th.

I'd take Kendrick still over the three, I think he has a better track record in the minors, and can get that average up there past .310. He may steal a couple more than 12 also. Barfield wouldn't be in the same discussion of the two as far as upside IMO.

THe only thing Kendrick has over Kinsler is batting average.

Not so sure of that. The past two season's (including minors numbers) thier homerun rate has been very similar. Kinsler had 39 in 992 AB's and Kendrick 36 in 1026. Kendricks AVG, OBP, and SLG %'s have been alot better.

They both look like they could be 20/20 guys in 07 or 08...i'd then take the guy that could possibly hit .320 and have the higer OBP and SLG, and that is Kendrick.

kinsler, but yeah i wouldnt mind waiting untill 1 or two are off the board and taking whose left.

btw, ameriquest is not that good of a park for right handers homeruns. its fairly average in that respect.

still a good park for him to hit in with a good effect on average and some doubles, but just not particularly great for right handers homeruns HR, believe it or not.

of course, being fairly neutral in RH homeruns is better than being in a pitchers park.

What kind of steals numbers should we expect this year from Kendrick?

I'd say something around 12-18, but no more than 20.
