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:

But there is no reason to put up a ranking that is completely asinine unless you want to look like an idiot.

I refuse to sign up for there website so someone will need to copy and past the pitcher rankings so we can continue to rip them.

Yeah, I'm sure Jenkins will do better than Chavvy...

That list is just ridiculous. I don't know how he did his rankings, but it sure was a funky way.

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


LMAO :-b This guy is a complete idiot !+)

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.


also a Helton believer here

Without doing too much research of my own into the article, my guess is that these are not rankings of fantasy baseball value, but who the top hitters will be. Not homerun hitters, not base stealers, hitters. So yes, BA is going to be highly valued. Shelton probably won't be ranked in the top 30 in any fantasy league at the end of next year, but he may very well be in the top 30 for Avg.

OK? So Mr Bonds, who will likely hit .350 in 06 is not a top 50 hitter in baseball?
