My Top 25 for 2007

I would rank Cabrera in the top 5, but not #2 (in a redraft at least). Guys like Santana, Ortiz, Howard and A-Rod I would still place ahead of him.

I drafted Utley this year, and I've been happy with him. But I'm surprised to see people rating him 7th and 10th, and nobody giving them grief about it. I'd gladly snag him in the 2nd round again, but no way I'm taking him in round 1. It's real hard to see how anyone could rate Reyes behind him.

I worry about taking Zambrano at this point also with the rising WHIP and walks. Now his lower back is giving him fits too. I like guys like Peavy and Haren better.


You like Danny Haren over Carlos Zambrano? He'll be healthy by next year, and the Cubs will have D-Lee back.

Yes I do, but only because I try and be as safe as possible with pitchers. I worry about Zambrano's years of abuse, the increasing walk rate, and the increasing WHIP. The back just added to my concerns.....do those injuries go away? I don't know.

Haren has improving WHIP, K/BB, a good AL ERA, and no real injury history. Zambrano probably has more upside, but I'd put Haren in the same tier and think I would rather have him. (I have both of them in my money league team and have to drop one. I think about this issue a lot! :*) )
