VLAD RANKED 38th best player by Yahoo???????

Postby unclepaulie » Tue Feb 17, 2004 8:39 pm

First of all this is not my rankings, but they (Yahoo Rankings) affect my draft more than anything else. What I am talking about is Yahoo player perception. Many people in my leagues will jump on a player based simply on Yahoo's rankings, and every year I end with some really good players late. I am not saying people don't know who Vlad is, but if he drops in the rankings chances are he will slip somewhat in the Yahoo draft. I also saw Tejada's name in the 30's, did anybody else see any badly ranked players such as these?

They are always that bad. Vlad's ranking may be attributed to his injury last year. Where's Randy Johnson? I haven't looked at them yet.

These are the WORST rankings I have ever seen, but in a strage way I love it. This can only help me and the rest of the cafe members who put the time & effort into creating our own rankings ;-) .

As I understand it, the O-Rank is a combination of last year's stats and the current year stats. Since there are no 2004 stats yet, it's necessarily 2003 stats. As the season goes along, the O-Rank should change. It's not a projected 2004 ranking.

Yahoo's rankings are pretty poor every year. Any one who was on the DL last year will be way too far down. I haven't looked yet, but I bet Giles is outta sight-outta mind on their list.
It's time to roll the dice.
