I really agree with the places that Konerko and Berkman take up on this list. Konerko is a great candidate for a bounce back year, and I think that Berkman will be overvalued in the draft because of his monster first half last season.

Its hard to disagree with your choices for the 2 up 2 down so far this year.

Was targeting both Wieters and Sandoval.

This year Votto is one of my main targets. Konerko is a guy I also feel I can get late and should rebound. I'm a White Sox fan and this guy was hampered by injuries and hopefully hes healthy. He was making contact just not finding gaps/getting hits.

I also like Chris Davis as a 1B or even 3B option.

Was konerko an "upper" last year too? :-?

I'm not a big fan of konerko. If he fell pretty far (14-15) I'd probably take a chance, otherwise i'm not buying what konerko is sellin'...

Last year's Ups were Prince Fielder and Adam LaRoche.

Downs were Carlos Delgado and Derrek Lee.

well he's going around late 13th on average, so he could easily make it to the 14th-15th range, hence the reason he's an up. i think given a healthy season he can easily outproduce where he's going.

His MDP is currently 170.55, which actually puts him in the 15th round in 12-team leagues.
