Any steals with the Yahoo Rankings?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Snakes Gould » Fri Feb 16, 2007 4:11 pm

there's always millions of guys with rankings that dont make any sense...i dont even consider them "rankings" by yahoo, more as just a list...especially after 100, theres no rhyme or reason behind it.

Crawford at 15 strikes me the most.

As a steal? Where do you want him to be ranked?

As for steals...Cole Hamels at 95! 26 is a little low for Holliday. Teahen at 196.

I might be in the minority but I am concerned a bit about Saito as I think he slightly overachieved. Also, the failure rate of second year Japanese pitchers is alarming not to mention Broxton is right there chomping at the bits. But still, he is slated to be the closer and should be ranked a lot higher than that.

I agree Saito is not good. If I remember correctly he hasnt had a sub-4.00 era in JAPAN in 3 or 4 years. Due big time decline

Both have been named but I'll def target Holliday before #26 and Rios well before #126

He was a starter for most of his career - as a Closer, his numbers have been quite nice. Some players function much better in that situation than as a MR. I don't expect much regress, although a slightly higher ERA and less K/9 is likely.

Good info or Saito guys, I wasn't aware of how mediocre he was in Japan, I'll bump him down a couple spots in my closer rankings. That being said, he still warrants being taken well before his Yahoo ranking ;-D
