I like Ortiz. He finally got an opportunity last year and cashed in. I'd place him just ahead of Bagwell.

Bagwell is right where he should be. If you are being real, real generous with your rankings put him ahead of Lee and Sexson but don't even think about putting him ahead of Pujols, Helton, Delgado, Giambi or Thome.
Delgado had that MVP season in 2000, then had 2 decent but not great seasons. Last year he was back to greatness, and I see a drop to his 2001/2002 numbers again this year. Don't be fooled into thinking this guy is a 1st round caliber player.
I'm worried about Delgado, too. I'll pass on him, and Giambi as they'll go too early for me. Huff should definitely be on there, and so should Ortiz--they both qualify, I think.
Let me know if Huff and Big Hurt are where they should be, also Sweeney hops one space over Nevin....
