If I ran a real MLB team I would take Chavez hands down. Better glove on defense, takes more walks, higher batting AVE ceiling, swipes a few more bases, and has been slightly behind Blaylock with his OBP% yet slightly ahead with his SLG% the past two years.
The A's arent letting Chavez go any where as they are keeping him long term so he will never benefit on par with the lineup support Blalock gets. Blalock has more HR potential as well and is 2 years younger. I believe Chavez could top Blalock in just about every category except HR's playing for Texas, but that is just segwaying to make believe land.
I believe Chavez is the better MLB 3B, but Blalock takes him in fantasy. They are both 1st tier 3rd basemen. Ramirez is good but at the top of the 2nd tier, not quite near their level unless he can replicate last years numbers for a couple more seasons while keeping a handle on his errors.
Ramirez seemed to get a handle on all of his errors last year, but if he reverts anywhere near to his 2001-2003, 77 errors committed form, then he might not finish the last year of his contract in Wrigley. Further hurting his Dynasty value.
