3. Gaby Hernandez
2. Kevin Slowey - Twins
2. Jeff Niemann
1. Travis Bowyer


I gave a score of 50 point to the top player on each list, 49 to the next guy, etc.

Thanks to coleminer, moochie, rhd, thedude, Raiders Umpire, brandnew, bigken, quack quack, jenkins, and Scarp for submitting their lists.

I did this entire thing by hand, so if you see a player listed twice (I don't think I made that mistake) let me know. I'll combine him and move him to his appropriate place.

Finally, this list would work better if someone wanted to put down the organization and/or positions that each guy plays. I don't have the time. If someone wanted to go a little further and break it down into positional rankings, I'd sure appreciate it.

Next year, one of you crumbbums has to do this. My eyes hurt.

I just noticed Justin Upton is also listed twice (at 93) i think that is the only other problem.


EDIT-Billingsly is listed twice as well

Very nice list. Kenji Johjima is also listed twice and I don't think that he'll ever play in the minors.

Conor Jackson and Petit are way low.

Nice to see the love for Ian Steward (drafted him 2 years ago in a dynasty).

Fixed the doubles - thanks.

Also, I don't know that Petit or Jackson are way too low, Mookie. Everyone seems to have questions re: Petit and that's reflected here. Personally, I'd like to have him a little higher, but I wanted a good reflection of how people are going to draft this year.

Conor Jackson is #19, which is about right IMO.
