Wow Tavish, that's really high for Chavez. I haven't done mine yet but I don't think that he'll be in my top five.
It might be high, but I think there is a very good chance for a Beltre-type breakout year for Chavez in 2005. I hate the stadium he hits in which makes it a difficult projection, but he should have a legitimate shot at 40+ HR and an average hovering around if not above .300. Both Rolen and Beltre I think will come back closer to their career numbers especially in the BA department.

Figgins too, if he gets a starting gig.
Huff and Mora I have about even. Huff's extra eligibilty is handy, and on base statistics (BA/OPS) I would say the two would produce very similar numbers. I'm not at all sold on the D-Ray's lineup and I believe Mora will get the advantage in RBI/R. Mora should also snag a few more SB than Huff will.
As for Lowell and Chipper being too low, I would be interested to see who you would put them ahead of. I don't see any way they break into the top 5 (maybe Lowell if you use him only for the first half and trade away for value). If Glaus is healthy he would be the player I would consider undervalued but I guess if you aren't sold on him playing a full season (I wouldn't argue that a bit) then Chipper and Lowell would be more valuable. Those two moving up one or two spots when most of the 3B I have 6-10 will probably all go around the same spot in the draft doesn't seem like being way too low though.
I have Figgins that low for basically the reason you stated. I'm not at all sold on him having a spot all season long. Guillen and Glaus moving out is a great sign that he will get time somewhere. Even when he is playing he simply doesn't steal enough (where a majority of his value comes from) to make a major jump into the second tier of 3B. The same basically goes for Freel.
I would have been better off leaving the rest of the group off since I wouldn't want to touch anyone ranked below Figgins, but the thread asked for 20 and I threw some random 3B I thought of onto the list (that'll teach me not to check Dmitri's games played).
Bury me a Royal.
