I'd rank Schilling higher, and Tejada and Garciaparra drop out and Martinez drops a few spots, but the rest looks like a solid list.

Barry Bonds is in a whole new level of hitting. Ranking him 3 isn't a joke. 370, 40 Homers, 110 RBIs isn't worthy? He's the best hitter in the game. If San Fran found a way to get others on base before him, number 1 would be a distinct possibility.

YankeeFan51, I agree that Bonds has really distanced himself from most hitters. But don't you think that Kent's departure will cause him to get even less pitches to hit this year?

Bonds isn't that far from the #3 spot. Definite first round pick, but to put him in front of Vlad is crazy.

therein lies the difference between fantasy and reality. Bonds contributes less to fantasy because of what he brings. he walks so much that his average gets discounted in fantasy because of fewer ab's. In a per ab comparison Bonds is outstanding but basically 40 hr's and 110 rbi's is good but doesn't really stand head and shoulders above.

Soriano higher I think and Giambi a bit lower.
