I dont agree with the rankings at all. Sowers before Billingsley? Sowers is lucky if hes a top 5-10 pitcher...

Sowers doesn't have much of a fastball, but look at the numbers (which BP did). He was dominat last year. WIll that transalte well into a dominate MLB career? Probably not, but he could be a good pitcher for a long time.

Hanley Ramirez's ranking bounce around every year. :-)

I think Kinsler should be higher, and Prince at 9 is an outrage!

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I could be off here but Kenji Johjima is too high....and he has no biz being ranked above J Clement.

I like SOWERS BTW,,,,his numbers can back up that ranking.

J Upton should be higher and Troy Patton deserves a spot somewhere on that list.
