New Sports Fanatics rankings up...

[quote="Yoda"]What an awful list. All I need to do is look at the top 10 SP on these lists to determine whether they are serious or not.

Carpenter is #2? Felix at #6? Patterson at #12? Prior would need to miss a ton of time to rank at #21.

Look at where Millwood is ranked and tell me you would seriously take all those guys ahead of him. This list is a joke.[/quote]

Personally, I think Yoda & about 90% of people here at the cafe could do better.

Even taking into account it is a starting point, there are some serious flaws with these rankings.

Post your rankings Chris8.. Let's ridicule yours! As far as the 90% - realistically - less than 10% of cafe people could actually even attempt rankings.

He doesn't come around here very often I'm assuming. Most of us that are around here alot can and do pop off rankings all the time.

Maybe these are his rankings, thats why he is so defensive about them? :-?

I've volunteered to do some rankings for Lofunzo. You're more than welcome to ridicule them then! ;-)

On a side-note - I'm not ridiculing the rankings at Sports Fanatics. I merely commented that there were some serious flaws in them, which others have already pointed out in this thread. (If you want specifics, ones mentioned are Delmon Young #14 OF, Felix #6 SP, Halladay ranked lower than Patterson, etc).

And of course most people in the cafe do rankings. How else do we draft our teams? :-?

Clearly, we just look at one magazine or set of projections online and use it for our leagues. We don't even tailor it to our leagues' scoring systems. We're mindless drones.

DUH!
