If it weren't for some obvious names at the top of the list, they should give the caveat: Our fantasy fifty (in no particular order)

Yes. Worst ever. No other rankings I've ever seen even come close. No wonder the writer didn't put his name anywhere on the page :-P .

I actually can't understand that. 165 isn't that many Ks. John Maine had 2 less wins and 15 more Ks. What gives?

These are the worst rankings I have ever seen. According to there rankings with a late pick in a 12 team draft you could draft your 1st 4 picks with Wright/Cabrera/Utley/Granderson. I would love to draft with people using those rankings.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

They even screwed up the 1st one on the list.

ARod: Set career highs in HR, RBI and runs w/ .314 avg, 24 SB


A career high in HR? I guess 54 is more than the 57 he hit in 2002 :-?

Those rankings are pretty bad. It seems as if they're based solely on the assumption that each player will duplicate what they did last year. I can't think of any other way this list could be the way it is!! Unless who ever wrote it left their laptop out, and their kids were playing with it!! :-D

I originally thought that the rankings must have been based on last season but now I don't think so. First of all Ichiro had a definite top 50 year last year (arguably top 25) and he's not even there. Pena should be on the list as should somebody like Markakis. If it was based on last year than guys like Rowand and Lowell who had fluke years should also be there but they aren't. As should a closer or Catcher which it baffles me why there isn't one.
