My Top 25 for 2007

Postby hooligan1 » Wed Sep 13, 2006 11:42 pm

OK guys, here it is. I could not wait any longer so I made out what is still a bit of a preliminary top 25 for next year. I'm certain my opinions about this list will change in the following months, but for now it's all good.....

1. Albert Pujols
2. Miguel Cabrera
3. Johan Santana
4. Alex Rodrieguez
5. Travis Hafner
6. Vlad Guerrero
7. Ryan Howard
8. David Ortiz
9. Carlos Beltran
10. Chase Utley
11. David Wright
12. Derek Jeter
13. Chris Carpenter
14. Jose Reyes
15. Manny Ramirez
16. Roy Halladay
17. Alfonso Soriano
18. Vernon Wells
19. Lance Berkman
20. Miguel Tejada
21. Carlos Zambrano
22. Grady Sizemore
23. Carlos Lee
24. Matt Holliday
25. Justin Morneau


So fire away. Tear down my list. Agree with it. Whatever you want. Opinions encouraged!!

I don't know if I would be comfortable taking Miguel 2nd overall. Also, at this point, I may take Howard over Hafner, especially considering Hafner's not playing for the rest of the year. And just because Reyes is so young and could potentially get better, I would take him over Jeter.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

There are many things that are wrong with that list IMO..

Don't have time to list them, but one thing I noticed is that you're missing Bay.

I know what you're saying about Taking M-Cab 2nd. I'm just not sure that I'm really enamored of anyone else at that spot either.

I waffled back and forth on the Jeter/Reyes spots. I just fell that soooo much of Reyes' value is tied up in his legs, so if he were to tweak a hammy or sprain an ankle, he becomes pretty pedestrian. I could be convinced to switch them though......

Well everyone is going to have opinions about what's "wrong" with anyone's list, so I'm not suprised there.

Good call on Bay. I probably should have him ranked ahead of Holliday and perhaps even Lee......

even if he doesnt steal bases, 110runs, 20hrs, 70rbis and .300avg is still pretty damn good for a SS.

also wheres Crawford??

Too high or too low? I'm not real high on him for next year. I think he's peaked, as this clearly looks like his career year and he won't qualify at 2B any longer........

If he's not stealing bases, I also wouldn't count on crazy runs and you're right; those other numbers are still good, but.... not fantastic.

Crawford is a bubble guy for me. He's right there in that 23-24-25-26-27 range. He could slide into the top 25 for me at some point........

Few things that jump out at me right away.

M-Cab is definitely not being taken second overall in a mixed league.
Hafner wont be a first round pick merely because he is Util only. Santana is not a 3rd overall pick, i put him in the mid-late first round.
David Wright definitely takes a huge bump down, i know his numbers are nice, but he's been putrid the second half, ever since the Home Run Derby.
Jeter is not a second round player, more like the 3/4.
You give pitchers way too much credit here. Other than Santana pitchers dont start to fly off the board till the 3rd - 4th round.
I think I'd take either Crawford or Bay instead of Holliday.
