Nice article. ;-D

I'd rank Estrada over Olivo, but I owned Estrada last season so I could be biased :-D .

Thanks for the comment!

It's a close fight for that last spot between Estrada, Pierzynski & Olivo. I'm not all that high on Olivo, but he is younger and has more to prove.

Yeah, that's true -- Posada has been killing the ball lately.

Good point. Maybe I should have worded those a little differently. They aren't intended to be Yahoo-style rankings, but more projections for the rest of the year based on what we've seen thus far.

Posada has been hitting well lately, but I expect his 2007 performance will reflect his trend of the last few years. He is still very valuable, but due to his time in the league, we could start seeing a decline and possibly an injury. I expect when all is said and done, we'll see numbers just south of last year, probably around his 2005 numbers, maybe a little lower.
