Like every year. Unless someone slips a round or two lower than I have them ranked...and they never do. I will be taking catchers in the late rounds.

I don't see him at this point in his career putting up much better numbers than what he's done the last 3 years. He seems to be limited with the number of AB's they give him as well which is about 50 less than the other top guys.

I disagree about Barrett. His periperal stats (OBP & SLG) have been steadily improving. He started to hit both lefties and righties very effectively. He was well on his way to having his best year last year, when he got hurt. he missed an entire month due to injury and it is worth it to remember that he missed another 10 games due to his suspension. It is completly reasonable to state that he would have hit 4 more homers had he not been hurt in the very beginning of September. Couple that with 1 more homer during his suspension period and that now brings him to 25.

I think that he is looking at a batting average that will hover around the .300 area and something to the tune of 20-25 homers next year. IMO, he will be quite the sleeper late in the draft.

If Bard gets 450 ab's in SD where would he rank?

Boy, I just don't see Bard duplicating his 2006 performance. He's never hit like that before for an extended period. What do other people think?

Good to see McCann that high, I drafted him in like the 11th round. He should even have better numbers next year since they will probably give him more games. It was irritating how he had like a day off every couple games, but that is the right way to bring a bright catcher up.
