Actually I am not a fan of him one bit and will not be drafting him next year most likely, but stats and age show that is where he belongs in a keeper draft

I think Reyes is too high. I'd be surprised if he ever becomes more than a Scott Podsednik +10 HR. He doesn't drive in many runs, and he won't score tons of runs because he doesn't take a base on balls and I don't expect that to change much. I'd rather have Young and Felix and if I had to look around a little bit I'm sure I could find a couple more guys I'd put in front of him.

Maybe Carlos Zambrano, Aramis Ramirez, Chase Utley, or Grady Sizemore.

Which stats? Cause Peavy is 2 spots behind him while Peavy had a better WHIP, K/9 and K/BB last year. Plus Peavy is only 7 months older.

Yes, but what about wins? That is a very big stat, plus Dontrelle is only two spots higher. I understand your points and I agree that I would take Peavy ahead of Dontrelle, but this isn't my ranking as much as when I think people will draft players (Dontrelle is known to be a little overhyped and Peavy is unnoticed). That is why Derrek Lee is on there, yet I don't know if he will be a top 5 1B.

The thing is Wins are a poor predictor of future success. Just because Dontrelle won 20+ this year doesn't mean he will in the future. K/BB, K/9 and WHIP are much more accurate for predicting a future perfomance.
