Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

Well, you'd be making a mistake, Kinsler's history of injuries cannot be overlooked, even by the chosen people, Uggla is the easy preference. Weeks and Phillips are a couple of nice, not exceptional, players, selecting the one of the two that falls the furthest is the guy to take.
for what it's worth, here's what i have on my board for 2b
Cano Robinson 1
Pedroia Dustin 2
Utley Chase 3
Kinsler Ian 4
Weeks Rickie 5
Uggla Dan 6
Roberts Brian 7
Phillips Brandon 8
Johnson Kelly 9
Prado Martin 10
Hill Aaron 11
Zobrist Ben 12
Walker Neil 13
Kendrick Howie 14
Ackley Dustin 15
Figgins Chone 16
Beckham Gordon 17
Aviles Mike 18
Rodriguez Sean 19
Nishioka Tsuyoshi 20
Haven't adjusted yet for age (note roberts)
I would go Uggla over Kinsler.
Phillips and Weeks is a very close one. I would probably give a slight edge to Phillips.
Phillips should rebound this year on his RBI numbers. I think a line like .270-.275 15-20HR 85-95RBI 95-100R 10-15STL
Weeks should score a lot of runs. I think a line like .265-.270 25-30HR 75-85RBI 100-110R 10-15STL
i would gladly take Uggla over Kinsler. They both are similar in power, with Kinsler stealing more bases but Uggla stays healthy. and thats the key. I dont want to rent Kinsler for 2 out of 6 months. i want him all season, and he cant do that.
As for Phillips and weeks. I would take Phillips. He is more consistent in his production. averages 20/20 hits 260 to 270 his runs and rbi's vary on his spot in the line up but one always makes up for the others dissappointment.
Weeks is far from consistent. You never know what you will get from him. He has the ability to be a great option for 2nd but he cant also be a huge bust. He strikesout way too much for me.
