Throw Thome into the same category for me.

And to switch things up a bit, I am DRINKING THE FELIX PIE KOOL AID.

Three 1b's in the top five?

Highly doubtful.

1. Soriano and Pujols and Ortiz will all be consensus top-5's. As will Carlos Beltran in all likelihood.

2. Then there's Manny, Santana, and A-Rod.

Unless it's Pujols or somebody has fallen further than they should, I'll wait a few rounds and take someone like Giambi or Teixeira.

I take Howard before Manny, ARod and probably Soriano.

I doubt he goes very high. He is one of the best hitters in our generation but he's been hurt so often... He used to be so awesome...

In casual leagues somebody will see the name, the HR's, and the batting average since the break.

I can see him going from rounds 9-11, and I don't want to be a part of it.

Well I must be a crazy moron too, but I would take Howard ahead of those guys as well. Look at ARod's frickin' numbers this year. Garrett Atkins has arguably been better. Say it with me now--overrated!

The guys taking ARod top-5 next season will be the same people who took Helton in the 4th round this year. At some point you need to let go of the name...

I think that Pujols, Ortiz, and (depending on his team) Soriano will be the top 3 next season.
