I thought it would be interesting to breakdown the 100 by position, so here it goes:

1b: 15
2b: 8
3b: 10
ss: 5
of: 29
sp: 25
rp: 5

3 players qualify at multiple, Atkins, Guillen, and Jackson. Players may qualify at more positions, I just took the positions given.

...now divide the OF # by 3-5 and the SP # by 5(or so) and you will get a better look of things.

the lack of SS was noticeable even in this year's draft, then alone next year's AND a keeper. id be curious where furcal would be, had he not been injured. he was really on fire this season.

I was a bit surprised not to see Aubrey Huff in the top 100. He's hitting over .300 with 24 HRs and I believe he is in his prime and overlooked a lot.

Huff will be 32 next year so he's not exactly still in his prime....the end of it if he is. Add in the fact that he hasn't had a good year since 2004 and thats why he's not in the top 100.

Ok so this year is his best year to date (if he can keep it up). He's still hit with .280 the last couple of years. And even though I thought he was only 28, 32 is still not bad. I think he has a couple of really good years still in him. Of course I might be just blowing smoke up my own ass since he is currently the only decent hitter on my team ...

Hey, I'm with ya. I've liked Huff ever since he's started producing early this century. I've even drafted him in at least 1 league each year since, if I'm not mistaken. :-? But I still can't call him a top 100 guy.

I don't subscribe to Ron Shandlers site, but he has to be kicking himself for hyping Huff for so many years and then writing a long article in this years Forecaster about how things can go wrong with predictions, using Huff as his prime example. Ouch!
