apologies ...

I wasn't trying to belittle ..

I don't understand the point of posting Yahoo ranks ? sorry i just don't ..
do people really pay attention to them?


I use Yahoo rankings to predict who the n00bs will pick next.

Not only that, but in the late rounds of a live draft, a lot of times yahoo has some good sleepers buried deep in their rankings and when you see 30 seconds left on the clock, soemtimes people will tend to forget about those guys when their names aren't there when they look at the top of the page...

Bingo!! There's one guy in our league that I've argued about the merits of doing research with on several hundred emails and he's always arguing that all he needs to do all year is read the ESPN Mag draft preview and watch sports center. Usually, by about the 6th round all the guys in the mag are gone and the draft slows down. I like to start yapping about guys I don't want about that time, usually to someone else but in earshot...LMAO...

Two "new" players added...
358 Molina, Bengie C Tor
588 Rodríguez, Félix RP Was

Also, starting in the 640's, Yahoo has scrambled the ranking of some players, not that it really matters. Yahoo usually does this (re-sorting bottom tier players) every few days without rhyme or reason. That's why I stated that my list was as of 2/06/06. But Yahoo will usually leave their Top 200-300 alone, unless there's a major injury or something.

I posted my list because I thought some people might find it helpful to see all the Yahoo pre-rankings and position eligibilities in one place. The most time-consuming part was looking up the first names of players I wasn't familiar with at the bottom of the list.

Anyone who is above playing Yahoo Fantasy Baseball didn't have to look at the list if they felt it was a waste of their time. The title clearly stated what the thread was about.
