A is Todd Frazier, only cause he's been my 3B the entire time Zimm has been out. Not sure of the other 2 at first glance. None look good enough to be Donaldson who has teens HRs I believe.

I'll add another one, though, if I may:

Player D - 21 R, 10 HR, 35 RBI, 0 SB, .240 AVG

I did a poor job with this thread. The point I was wanting to make was that player A is outperforming B and C even though they were (usually) 2nd round draft picks.

...and player D has made a good comeback after a slow start. I was able to pick him up as a FA in 1 league. ;-D

No, you did a fine job. I just don't know who 3B B and C are. I know they aren't Zimm, and I don't believe they're Miggy, and after that I'm not sure who to guess. One could be Beltre, I guess, but he's raked when not on the DL. Someone will eventually just cheat and say who they are, and the discussion will continue. I like threads like this. Frazier's really had a solid first third of the year, and I hope it continues. ;-D

My guess is Juan Francisco is D.

I'm sure David Wright is B, and I'm glad I didn't take the conservative second rounder in Wright. C is Longoria.

That what I was thinking too but I don't think he has that many RBI.

Francisco doesn't have that many RBIs, not with his here and there playing time. I'd probably guess Lawrie for player D, he started off so poorly that people would think .240 is a serviceable average.

Player C is Longoria, who I pretty much just expect disappointment from now every season. Justified or not, he's a player I actively avoid. Player B is David Wright, who I'd like to list as a Buy Low, but the lineup around him is just so pedestrian. There isn't an offensive Met I'd want on my fantasy team. 4 HR and 3 SB 1/3 of the way through the season is just horrific. He could catch fire, but he's striking out at an alarming rate, and hitting for absolutely zero power.

It's disappointing that I needed to include Frazier in a big trade but at least Stanton has been AWESOME. I grabbed Frazier in another league though since I have been a fan for awhile.
