Way too early for a list. I remember us all ranking starting pitchers at around this time last year. We then revisited it at the end of the season and the rankings were very different.

Silly list. :*)

May be able to use this though to work out deals for those in the hunt this year. :-?

Top 50 is a lot easier to do than Top 100 FWIW. Also, a list like this just seems unnecessary at this point. I can see if you do a ranking based on who you think will do what for the rest of the year or something.

Keeper lists are a bit different since you would need to plan a bit ahead but still...

I hope Yahoo's 2009 pre ranks look like this list. As somebody pointed out earlier, you could make a dominant team if a draft went anything like that.

There are many I could gripe about, but Carlos Lee is probably too low at 44.

I don't know. I like the list. Pouliot historically doesn't overreact to bad years and doesn't over-rank someone who has had one good year (although he unusually loved Braun last year). I like guys like Quentin and Hamilton way more than he does, but it does make me want to check out their peripherals more in the offseason. Also, I like that guys like Rollins and especially Miguel Cabrera are still high.

The list isn't all that good, you a Rotoworld homer fan? Just curious, it might explain your thoughts.

No...I don't know what a Rotoworld homer fan is :-? . I'm a J35J preseason list fan! :-b (Yes, I subscribed.)

Seriously, I read a lot of sites and Rotoworld is one of them. Pouliot actually has good fantasy rankings over the years. His rankings of prospects and young players are generally off (not aggressive enough) in my opinion though.

Thats cool, I'm not sure what a homer fan is either. I was thinking two seperate things and wrote them both down. :-S Thanks for answering the question....and thanks for "subscribing"! :-D
