Does anyone else have Helton that high?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I think that list would have come out better if the author just sorted alphabetically. :*) Looks like he bit big time on Konerko's postseason buzz. :-b

i've got him finishing about there, although i wouldn't draft him until mid-late 2nd round (because i won't have to....)

his splits from this year are really telling, IMO.

Is it just me or is Bonds not even listed? That is really funny if that is the case.

He is listed as #68 best hitter right behind the retired Larry Walker. :-b

Yeah and apparently Sean Casey is the #35 hitter in the league ahead of Sexson, Berkman, A.Jones, Dunn, Utley, Furcal, VW, Chavez, etc...

Whoever put this list together is a serious n00b. No offense.

The author is listed as having 26 years of fantasy baseball experience and a member of SABR. Since Fantasy Baseball started in 1980 I'm guessing he is a liar. Which is disappointing cause I was all ready to send in my $5 to become a member of SABR. :-D

I'm usually cynical with most of these 'expert' rankings but I just noticed that he doesn't have Rollins in there either. This guy doesn't have a clue.

Bonds is easily top 40, even with the injury risk. That's some major craptastical rankings right there. :-t

No doubt the rankings are not great - they're clearly just a mechanical projectection based on straight stats (no tweaks for player development or injury adjustments and such - thus Bonds is rated low). and seem to overvalue the most recent season and BA numbers.

On the positive, it's nice to see someone put up projections so early. Gotta give them credit for that.

They've also got their pitching rankings up now as well:
