If you can't tell I am in Cozart's camp. He was very solid defensively last season and has some nice pop in his bat. I have a feeling he will improve a little with the bat and don't see his defensive range going anywhere over the next 5 years or so.
I like Cozart. He was very solid, and in his first full season. I also think he will improve some with the bat. Not spectacular in the field but makes all the plays.

Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
