Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I certainly agree many of the 3B's are on the decline. I just don't know if Lawrie is ready to make the significant output this season to surpass them. Such a young age and I don't know of many that didn't a year or two to adjust. I clearly think he's a top 3 for '13 or '14. and yes, it's sad to see our "stars' declining...sometimes you do wish they'd retire before it gets to that point.
Someone (in my league) made a claim for an interesting choice. I do have the option to keep NAPOLI also. The claim is I could keep him and hopefully he gets almost 500 at bats; making him a stand out catcher and probably as much output as Lawrie. thought??
not sold on Lawrie or Jennings.. I am sold on Andrus...
Dee Gordon may be a cheap option.. but Dee does not have nearly as much patience as Elvis does.. plus Elvis is in a MUCH better lineup...
Lawrie might be good... it would be close 2nd for me with him..
Because you can replace Andrus cheaply with a Dee Gordon and i am not ready to endorse Jennings just yet. The speed is there, and he probably will eventually hit for good average put 15hrs is probably what he will hit.
Lawrie is probably more of an impact at his position then the other two. and in one of my leagues all three were drafted in the 4th round.

all 3 in 4th? it seems andrus' past versus lawrie/jennings' potential. good point too. Gordon/Aybar..IF they can remain in the lineup would only cut me a few runs off of Andrus' stats and they could be selected much later. Only problem, I should have included, is I was able to keep Beltre so Lawrie would fill my one utility spot.
