I would probably have Francouer and Dye in 3. I'd consider shifting Figgins to tier 2. Francouer isn't as consistant as I would like and has issues, though he is liked by many. Dye has yet to put together great back to back seasons and I would not expect a repeat, and in any case, would take consistency over him at this point. I expect Figgins to have a better average and more or less repeat the counting stats from the past two years, which puts him into tier 2 in my opinion. If you don't expect that, then I can understand not moving him.

Quintin and Young seem too high for me - I don't like reaching for youth. Pierre should probably be a tier higher. And Ibanez probably should be too.

In a keeper that's about right for Ibanez. A couple of things; Pierre should be a lot higher, and Quentin down a few.

I'd have Francouer in 3, Swisher in just below Matsui in that tier, Markakis over Quentin, Pierre around Chone, and Duncan up a bit. But overall, solid rankings ;-D

Call me crazy, but if this is a keeper league with no penalty or limit on number of years for keepers, Im taking the 25 year old Crawford over at least Vlad and Beltran, if not Soriano also.

Id probably rank the top like this(with no penalty):

Crawford
Soriano
Vlad
Beltran
Sizemore
Holliday
Bay
Lee
Berkman
Jones
Manny
Wells
Suzuki

Well i figured some people would call me crazy, but im just wondering why.

Crawford should develop more power in the next 2 years and if he is 5+ years younger than Vlad, Beltran, Soriano, why wouldn't you want those extra years of top 5 OF production?

Because both Vlad and Beltran should be okay for at least the next five years age-wise, and projecting past that can be VERY risky. Personally, it would be tough for me between him, Vlad, and Beltran.
