He still has the ability to hit 40+ homers, a little more timely this year and a better year out of Kent and Berkman, plus 10-15 sb I think Bagwell is #5. NL central guy here though.

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

Agree with TBIBE-FAN, Thome should be 3rd. I would put Delgado 5th, and move Bags ahead of Lee.

Huff and Ortiz may not have 1B desigs, Huff will be OF and Ortiz DH...if not, I will fit them in appropriately.

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.

Here are Delgado's numbers the last 4 seasons.

2000 115-41-137-.344
2001 102-39-102-.279
2002 103-33-108-.277
2003 117-42-145-.302

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.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Huff played 22 games at 1B last year according to rotoworld.com. That is enough to qualify him at 1B.
