Give me 3 names you are having a tough time ranking.

1) Eric Chavez - Last year a sign of decline?
2. Aubrey Huff - Was he merely unhappy or is he already getting worse?
3. Vernon Well - 27. More lineup protection. Please hit. For the love of God.

clemens, bonds, beltre. i have no idea what to do with clemens. one of the best SP if he plays, but he may not play. even if he does play you cant be certain how much of the season he will play.

Can he stillbe considered young or is he what he is? I have him in a salaried keeper league and it costs me $0 to keep him but should I use his roster spot for another prospect.


I say keep him, I like his stuff and his pitching style. Kinda reminds me of Carpenter, Zambrano, Halladay just cuz his physique and high k totals and ground ball outs.

My three

Aubrey Huff - had him last year and hardly ever played him, guy just doesnt seem to have any pop left in his step

Upton - this depends on keeper league or season

Clint Barmes - Was last years start a fluke? or is he really going to be that good once he gets a healthy year in

Mostly injured players from 05:

Bonds, Gagne, Rolen jump to mind. Also players who really had a disappointing season: Chavez, Blalock, Beltre...

Interesting thread. Bonds is probably on everyone's mind, but I have decided for myself where he should be (out of sight and out of mind).

I think some other players are difficult:

1. Alfonso Soriano. I'm surprised no one mentioned him yet. Some are saying don't touch. Others saying easy second round. I'm not sure where he should really fall. I keep flip=flopping, which probably means I'll let someone else take the risk (unless he falls way down).

2. Rickie Weeks. I just don't buy the hype on him, but the upside is still intriguing.

3. Brett Myers. I hated this guy in past years and he finally shows a little promise. I'm not convinced it isn't just a glitch in mediocrity.

1. Brad Wilkerson - Like others, I cannot decide what round is reaching for him too early, when he should be taken or what round he is a steal at.
2. Felipe Lopez - Is he a top 5, 5 cat second baseman or isn't he? Should him and Giles have equal billing?
3. Chad Tracy - See Wilkerson questions

Project the players, make dollar values, and the values will tell you where they rank and what round is too early, late, or just right.

I think projecting them is what people are having problems with! :-?

A few different ones...

Morgan Ensberg - I think he's for real, but he's only done this well once.
Joe Mauer - I can't decide whether to reach for him or not. I keep thinking the power he showed a couple of years ago will appear.
Bobby Crosby - Made great strides in contact but still only hit .270-something. SLG% went up but HR ratio went down.
