Cabrera, Jeter, Carpenter, Halladay, Wells, Zambrano and Holliday are too high.
Manny, Soriano (especially), and Crawford are too low.

Some of the others are debatable, but those are the biggest flaws I found.

I'd also add Hafner and Holliday to that list of being too high.

Hafner is not too high are you serious?

I don't understand how you can start ranking players when the 06 season is not even over.

I would take Crawford over Holliday and Bay, but I would take Holliday quite a bit ahead of Bay. Holliday has been consistently good this year, where as Bays high value came from his steals last year. Bay has also been fairly average this year minus that one huge month of home runs he had.

I agree. Holliday has been awesome since second half 05...

Who cares about month by month? He's going to top 100/30/100/10 for the second straight year. With 2-3 weeks left, he's already tied last years HR/RBI totals. He could just as easily have several good months next season.

I care about it, thats a big warning sign for players to avoid, those that have their stats carried by one months production. I think Bay is a fine player, I just don't know if he'll make my top 25 or not. Its way too early to worry about this anyway, just commenting that I dont' think its out of line for someone to not put him in there. He most certainly will not make my top 15 next year, will he be in the 16-25 range, dunno.

I dunno. I can't see how Konerko is being left off the top 50 list and guys like Kazmir, Peavy and Ichiro are being put on. Ichiro has been a major disapointment and is so streaky a hitter I do not see why anyone would pick him in the high rounds at this point. Kazmir is hardly a proven veteran. Peavy has been a disappointment as well.


I also do not see Jeter or Sizemore being taken in the second round. They will go top 50 for sure, but not int he teens overall.

Speaking of white sox... where do you draft Dye next year? He is going to have 100+ R, 45ish HR's, 120ish RBI and close to 10 SB while hitting over .300.

I could see that in H2H being an issue, but would it matter in roto?

Which line do you want in roto?

92 32 101 9 .281

99 28 95 9 .335


I am pretty sure I will take the huge batting average and a even on the other 4 numbers. ;-D If Bay is not going to steal 25 bases a year, his value plummets quite a bit.
