  • Better Dodgers 3B: Cey or Beltre

    Adrian Beltre is having another fine season in Texas. Careerwise, he's played the most games for Los Angeles. Disregard how many games they played for the franchise. Who do you believe is the better third baseman, Cey or Beltre?

    I did not see enough of Cey to comment!

      --Cey is the better Dodger 3B by a mile. I'd still give him the edge overall at this point, but Beltre will almost certainly end up with the better career.

        I say Beltre by a wide margin, although that is tough for me, as Cey was my main man growing up. Not quite the same type of players, IMO.

          Beltre is well on his way to a surprising HOF career. Cey was won of those notch or two below the HOF guys. Beltre in this one.

            I'm not sure that one can disregard how many games they played. IMHO Cey was the better overall Dodger, in no small part to the 500+ more games he played. Beltre is putting together a much better career. However, at this point all one can really do is consider whether Beltre's 2004 season outweighs the difference in the career numbers tallied by Cey? I could see it being argued either way.
