    The best list I’ve seen this year by a wide margin. Good job fellas.

    Don’t like Bautista as a top 10 OFer….that was the first thing that jumped out to me. Not sure I’ll have Heyward as a top 10 OFer either…not for a redraft league anyway….not yet. Otherwise, at a quick glance, I like it!

    how can this look so much better than the rest? almost doesn’t make sense does it, but I agree its true
    liked Pizzaboy high/low idea
    I like Asdrubal a little more that this… and Werth scares the crap out of me to have an underachieving year

    ReplyReply
  7. It would be easy enough to add standard deviation or high/low in future ranking lists. This is a good idea. Was there a particular player you were interested in? I’d be happy to provide you with the high/low.

  8. Mr. T says:

    Hey guys good work, everything looks about right with a quick look through. I’m not sure if you missed Ryan Rayburn at 2B or if you don’t have him eligable at 2B. He logged in 18 games at second last year. He is eligable in our league. He really helped me late last year. I have him down as a sleeper at second this year and figured he would be on the list somewhere. He projects some pretty good 2Bman numbers this year. Thanks for putting in the time on these lists, very good ranking source!

  9. Nice catch with Raburn. I’d put him around 14-16 on the list.

    I don’t see Adam Lind in there anywhere…did I over look him?

    ReplyReply
  12. User avatar daullaz says:

    It appears he’s not on our spreadsheet. About where would you rank him in the OF section? I’m thinking in the mid-40s around Manny Ramirez.

    ReplyReply
  13. Yeah, I’d put Lind around 40-46

    ReplyReply
  14. pizzaboy76 says:

    No player in particular, just thought it would be interesting to see. Especially with players that tend to divide opinion. If the 10th ranked OF had a high of 9 and a low of 11, vs a high of 2 and a low of 27, it would definitely provide me with more to think about.

    Out of curiosity, what player has the biggest spread of opinion at each position?

    ReplyReply
  15. Mike610NY says:

    I guess it’s Mauer’s batting average that locks him up at one? More related to drafting strategy i guess, but I prefer a catcher with more pop.

    I’m curious about bay at 30. Haven’t seen any projections that warrant.

    ReplyReply
  17. octagon999 says:

    Why is Hamels rated above Jimenez? A genuine question I’d love the answer to.

    ReplyReply
  18. User avatar Inukchuk says:

    Better K rate, similar peripherals… While Ubaldo was OK from June on, he was actually outperformed by Hamels. At the very least, they’re closer than most would think.

    ReplyReply
  19. User avatar stevethumb says:

    i would put tim stauffer in the SP category, 70ish

    ReplyReply
  20. User avatar MashinSpuds says:

    Bay – Considering he, when healthy, could post similar numbers to the guys he’s around (Abreu, Swisher, etc) I think 30 is rather good. He could actually rival Hunter’s numbers around 24, but since no one knows what he’s going to do on the Mets (or how many at bats he’ll be healthy for) that’s probably why he’s only at 30 and not higher.

    You really need to update this with injuries and spring training statuses. Wainwright needs to be taken off completely. Greinke needs to be lowered, Utley needs to be lowered, Jason Castro removed,
