I noticed. I pointed it out in a top ten catcher discussion.
I think that is the only way you can justify putting Pudge that high. His K to BB rate is atrocious (12 to 1!!! - I think 63 to 5 actually), which kills rallies. Plus his HR power is not what it once was (5 hr, although his avg is still up). Not to mention his OPs is about 115 pts lower than last year.
I actually dropped him in one league that heavily penalized Ks and rewards BB.
