Technical Indicators 3rd basemen
Rodriguez, Alex ARod with juice .615 SLG/1.010 OPS...Arod off juice
.572/.973...still a darn good player.
Wright, David A better hitters background, but Citi Field has TALL walls. Numbers may stagnate in the power department.
Longoria, Evan Great potential, but overrated in non keeper leagues. His High K% (26%) and poor EYE .38 makes him a sophomore risk
Ramirez, Aramis Struggles with consistency, HR% is dropping steadily (6.4 in '05, 4.3 in '08). However has a good eye for power hitter.
Jones, Chipper The most consistent hitter in Major League Baseball. Consistency factor hovers between 90 - 100 every year. Age has had effect on health.
Zimmerman, Ryan Hand and wrist injuries robbed his fantasy owners, Only 24, will rebound this year with his power numbers.
Gordon, Alex Once a top prospect. EYE improved in the 2nd half as did his SLG (449) and FPI .67. Will cross 60 XBH this year. Underrated
Reynolds, Mark Does anyone remember Dave Kingman? Insane .40 K/AB% in 2nd half. Playing time risk, only hit .410 SLG against Righties
Encarnacion, Edwin Unlucky Singles% cost 20+ BA points. Average consistency, but EYE has been steadily improving. Good Age (26) to breakout
Figgins, Chone SB% is steadily dropping, which risks his greatest asset. Overrated as a 8th round ADP
Kouzmanoff, Kevin Horrible EYE (.16) makes him a liability in H2H leagues (17 Consistency Factor). Breakout very unlikely
Lowell, Mike October Hip Surgery makes him questionable to open season. Dominance and Discipline have been on decline
Beltre, Adrian Although LD% has been dropping steadily since '06, we should see a 15+ RBI increase in production.
Mora, Melvin Monster production in the 2nd H (13/65/.360) - .88 FPI, regression expected at 37 YO
Blalock, Hank Average Discipline, Average Consistency, still has good power. If healthy, will be well worth his 18th round ADP
Hall, Bill Has only posted 1 Quality Season, Poor Consistency Factor (29) and Discipline (21) make him unlikely to rebound
Wigginton, Ty Monster 2H (18/45/.295), unlikely to replicate production in Baltimore this season.
Glaus, Troy Shoulder surgery in January...hopes to return in late April? Playing Time makes him a high risk
