I don't know about H-Ram and Reyes over Pujols. I won't argue A-Rod or Pujols number 1. I don't think you can go wrong, altho I give the edge to A-Rod with the better team around him.

I wouldn't take Pujols with any of my first 5 picks. Terrible lineup around him and he already said if he is in as much pain as last year he won't play through it again. I don't see him really running anymore so he loses a little value there and 1B is pretty darn deep.

Yup, I'm starting to agree with this thought as well!

I get what you guys are saying, but if there is one person in baseball these days that is capable of hitting .350, hitting 60 jacks, and single-handedly leading your fantasy team to victory, it is the 27-year old Pujols. Plus, the downside to him is still really high. I'd take him #2 and only because I thought I could trade A-Rod for him and something else.

I just wish for Pujols' sake that the Cards could get one more decent hitter.

Unless Rasmus comes on like a Ryan Braun, their lineup is going to be absolutely terrible. I am currently preparing to go to a lot of free Cardinal games this season as free tickets become easily avaiable... :-)

Not a bad Big Board as a whole. Some are ranked too high for my liking (i.e. Granderson, Cano, Roberts, Figgins), but all in all, most players are ranked in the same ranges as I'd expect.

I'm curious about Reyes being ranked #3 over Pujols though. I'd think if anyone deserves a nod over Pujols, it would be either Holliday, Wright, or Utley.

Yes this was my thought as well.
