Why is Mark Teixeira listed as a 3B? Are he and Hank Blalock switching positions?

Olivo=Cerrano. He better learn how to hit the offspeed pitch w/movement..... especially the one's on the outside corner. If he does that, watch out.

I'd be surprised if PK has an '04 like his '03. I expect him to rebound although not to a first-half of '02 extent.

Crede? Sound in the field. Needs consistency with the bat. If his "O" catches up to his "D", All-Star potential.

No, that is a "fantasy opinion" where Tex qualifies as a 3Baseman, where a fantasy owner would most likely play him, b/c it is generally a lot "weaker" position than OF or 1B to find a stud player.

Crede did we3ll at the plate in the second half last season. Olivo will improve. It's a huge jump to go from AA to the majors, especially when your primary duty is to learn to call a game and the pitchers you'll be catching...

Quick bat and he has always shown steady improvement when he is given time to adjust.
