    Beltre over Donaldson and Arenado? Why?

    It wasn't an easy decision but in the end I felt Beltre was a better 3rd baseman defensively.

    I just looked at Beltre's numbers from last year and wow I didn't realize how good he still is. I can see the argument over Arenado now. But I still can't choose him over Donaldson.

    That's fair, I looked at all 5 of them and I could make an argument for any three of them.

    That third catcher's spot is tough for me.

    I get it know. And agree after last year he shouldn't be top 3, but if you look back at the last 5 years he should be up there. Didn't know this was a top 3 now league.

    I mean, I don't disagree. This is kind of a subjective list. All these lists are. A lot of it is how well you think a player is going to do moving forward and we just can't know for sure. I have no problem including McCutchen in my top 9 OFers. He's very much in that conversation just based on his track record and being still only 30 years old. He may have experienced a real decline in certain areas of his game, but he could still easily be a 5+ WAR OFer if he gets his BABIP up to his normal levels and cuts down on his strikeouts a bit. I see no reason why he can't.

    My 2Bs are

    Altuve
    Cano
    Pedroia.

    Pedroia is more consistent when healthy and better than Kinsler, higher career WAR in 130 less games and a year younger.

    Harper over Betts... I love Betts but Harper is just better and actually younger (barely)
    Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all

    These will IMO have the best stats in 2017 at their respective position:
    C- Posey / Lucroy / Sanchez
    1B- Goldchmidt / Votto / Rizzo
    2B- Cano / Altuve / Kinsler
    3B- Bryant / Arenado / Machado
    SS- Seager / Turner / Correa
    CF- Trout / Marte / Pollock
    RF- Betts / Harper / JD Martinez
    LF- Cespedes / Braun / Yelich
    DH- Mark Trumbo / Nelson Cruz / Carlos Beltran


    Masahiro Tanaka 2016 Stats:

    Wins 13 | Losses 4 | 193.2 IPs | 34 Walks | 160 Strikeouts | 2.97 ERA | 1.06 WHIP

    I'd bet on Betts repeating a 9 WAR season before Bryce TBH
