Your own "High Fives" (Yahoo article)

Postby warrick95 » Fri Apr 29, 2005 2:50 pm

Yahoo just posted their "High Fives" article here:
http://fantasysports.yahoo.com/analysis ... antasy/mlb

As I was reading it, I was amused by how I disagreed with the three experts (so-called) on many counts. I was just curious what y'all thought on these questions...here is what I think:

Rank these 2B-eligible players in terms of fantasy value for the rest of the season: Brian Roberts, Clint Barmes, Chone Figgins, Marcus Giles, Jose Vidro
1. Marcus Giles
2. Brian Roberts
3. Clint Barmes
4. Chone Figgins
5. Jose Vidro

They really underrate Marcus Giles.

Rank these outfielders in terms of fantasy value for the rest of the season: Torii Hunter, Milton Bradley, Jason Lane, Vernon Wells, Matt Holliday
1. Vernon Wells
2. Torii Hunter
3. Milton Bradley
4. Jason Lane
5. Matt Holliday (though he's a good platoon play and more attractive in that role than 2-4)

Rank these pitchers in terms of fantasy value for the rest of the season: Brett Myers, Jon Garland, John Patterson, Jamie Moyer, Barry Zito
1. Barry Zito (still holding out hope, though with a couple more bad outings I'd move him down for Patterson)
2. John Patterson
3. Brett Myers
4. Jamie Moyer
5. Jon Garland

Not gonna rank the off-topic things.

Sleepless in Seattle
Bachelor Party

Sleepless in Seattle
Philadelphia
Dragnet

Matt Says:
Saving Private Ryan

I can't trust a man who has Sleepless in Seattle on this list. :-b

Matt makes the most sense but really underrates M. Giles too.

Maybe he's taking Giles' injury risk into the equation. :-?
