He's right where he should be, not to high, not to low..... these are my rankings ya know!! ;-7

Now you coulda have said, I've got Mora higher in my rankings or I like Mora more than you or something to that effect but to say he is way to low is wrong, hes right where I want him!! ;-D

haha, I knew what you meant, just had to say it.

Well, obviously if you disagree with me it means that you're wrong. :-D

Last year was a down year for him, and he still scored 96 runs and drove in 83.



Personally I think last year is closer to what he really is. Especially at 35 yrs old.

I might be a little high on Zim but I would rank him 5th after Arod, MCab, Wright and Aramis...

Tentative sleeper to keep in mind: Casey Blake. We know how he started last year, and how he kept it up until injury. If he keeps 3B elligibility, keep him in mind late in the draft.

Nice to see Atkins getting some love! ;-D

I think he can actually improve on his season next year. Power could potentially drop, because as another poster stated, he is more of a line drive hitter. Most people didn't expect him to top 20 HRs this year, so maybe it's a sign he's finding that power stroke more often and can turn into a 30 HR guy? Either way, he's going to give you a great average, RBIs, and runs.

Look at his trend lines. His BA is plunging, as is his OBP and SLG. After the all-star break this year he hit .261 with a .686 OPS. If he keeps hitting like that, even the Orioles aren't going to be dumb enough to keep him batting 2nd and 3rd.

At best, if he rebounds a bit, he might be barely in the top 15. More than likely, he tanks even further and doesn't even make the top 20.

My thoughts exactly. This is finally the year the Mora is slightly over-rated as opposed to underrated.

It looks like Brandon Inge has been left off this list entirely. HRs and ribbies are pretty good, the .250 batting average aint so hot but I think he hit close to .290 in the second half. He plays all the time, Leyland needs him in there for his defense. I could see another 25 HR season next year with an increase in average. Certainly not top ten material but someone to consider.
