Don't be afraid to grab Adrian Beltre, Josh Donaldson or Anthony Rendon in the 2nd round of your fantasy baseball drafts.  If you can't pull the trigger, or some other owner grabbed them ahead of you, wait until rounds 4-6 to fill the hot corner with Evan Longoria, Nolan Arenado or Kyle Seager.  You can even wait much longer should you choose and wind up with a hopefully healthy Manny Machado or an aging Aramis Ramirez.  Both guys will be helpful while healthy, but make sure you have a backup plan!

Who Would You Rather Have - Pablo Sandoval or Josh Harrison
Cubs Option Kris Bryant to AAA Iowa
