A move to the AL as a DH would skyrocket his value.
I would agree to a certain extent. We gotta keep in mind that these rankings are for right now. These will surely change as trades happen and when we find out for sure where guys will hit in lineups, etc. So don't necessarily judge these rankings by anything more than what it is for right now. Jason Bays' value would sky rocket as well if he hit 3rd for the Yankees but it is what it is right now. Lets just view/critique these rankings for what they are right now, not what they might be or could be. We will have time to do that later!
Abreu at 7 seems a little high to me. He's on the wrong side of 30 and only hit 15 homeruns this past year, that doesn't seem like a number 1 OF to me. I see atleast 5 guys I would definitely take over him next year. I would bump him down to around 13 and push Wells up a few slots.
OF gets thin pretty quickly again this year. The top looks pretty good filled with power/speed combo guys, but then you see guys like Swisher and Hunter, no wonder you have Delmon so high. I would much rather reach during the middle rounds for Young/Baldelli based on potential than pick a Hunter type who I will probably just drop once he goes cold for a few weeks. Besides the couple of young guys I just mentioned, I probably won't be picking any of the 20-50 range guys next year in a draft. I just don't see the value especially when you can pick up similar guys off waivers or much later in the draft.
