Relative position of some '04 stat leaders at 3b:

Avg: Mora .340, ARamirez .318, Rolen .314 ... 11 more (everyday) guys ... ARod .286
Runs: ARod 112, Mora 111, Rolen 109, Beltre 104
HR: Beltre 48, Teixeira 38, ARod 36, ARamirez 36
RBI: Castilla 131 (OK, chalk that up to Coors), Rolen 124, Beltre 121, Teixeira 112, Blalock 110, ARod 106
SB: ARod 28, CGuillen 12, Mora 11
K: Blalock 149, CBlake 139, ARod 131 ... everyone else fewer

Other than a gain of roughly 20 steals, ARod did little last season to distinguish himself in any substantial way from the pack of top 3b. Throw in Chavez, whose injuries kept him from reaching the list above, along with guys like Lowell and Huff, and I'm not making ARod a top-5 overall selection.

A-Rod has been a top 5 fantasy stud since 1996, and even with a "down" year for him last season, he still out performed "Fantasy Wise", all other 3B's(thanks to those steals). He should be the first 3B taken in this years fantasy draft, where should a 3B be taken in your fantasy draft, is for you and your league to decide I guess.
