Update on pg. 1 ;-D

Added a MDP (change) column. Some of the biggest movers are players that have already been mentioned in this thread. Carlos Pena down 4 and Ervin Santana now in the top 100 after gaining nearly 9. Rafael Furcal also now in the top 100. Apparently he was not even in the top 200 on Couchmanagers last week, which hurt his previous MDP.

Thanks for putting this together. One question: Is it possible to get an expanded MDP beyond the top 100? Say, top 250 or even more? Thanks for your response.

Yeah, once the drafting season begins (and other ADP's are available), I'll go to 300. ;-D

This is incredibly difficult to do so thanks for doing the work. I used to consolidate Yahoo and ESPN but didn't get past 100-125.

Arod and Hanley are both ranked #1 BTW so everyone's ranking shoudl go down by one spot. :-D

Thanks Yoda! Fixed Arod and Hanley. Yes, it is incredibly tedious to do, but I actually don't mind data entry. Still, I'll probably only update it a few times before ST. I'll then pick up the pace once ST and draft season begin.

Are all the draft sites weighted equally? For instance, I think the quality of drafts at ESPN is slightly higher than Yahoo.

Wow this is pretty sweet to look at. Thanks Rookies and Cream.

Johan is going a little later than usual.

I personally love where Berkman is going for value. I wouldn't mind drafting 10th so I could nab him on the way around. This guy is underrated every single year.

Once again, thanks for the info. Great stuff.

Yeah. All sites weighted equally. The median statistic is used to account for ADPs that are really off. If a whole site is off (as was the case with FOX last year), I won't use their ADP's.
