It may take a couple of weeks before we get some regular dialogue and posting going on in this Forum. Most articles (including my Wednesday one!) have had very little response, if any!

Anyway, here are a few comments from me:

Shortstop - Felipe Lopez ought to be on here, ahead of Aviles, Greene & Cabrera (and I'd have said that before the opening day 2HR as well!)

Outfield - I'd bump Elijah Dukes out of there and get Coco Crisp in, based on Crisp hitting leadoff every day (and with a green light to run) and Dukes having uncertain playing time at the moment.

Starters - I have a few minor quibbles about particular rankings (eg: Josh Beckett is not a Top 10 starter for me - I'd have Billingsley in there instead), but nothing major. Lower down, Johnny Cueto is a borderline Top 50 based on your criteria, certainly below the other guys listed from Kershaw to Wandy.

Relievers - Gregg seems a bit low, seeing as how he has the job - I'd bump him up to the Top 20. Similarly, I know many of us expect Sherrill to lose the job in Baltimore soon enough, but as long as he has it, he ought to be above Chris Ray. I'd also have Carlos Villanueva above Ray, while he fills in for Hoffman.

Hope that gives you something to work with! ;-D
(And any comments you want to make in the Wednesday Waiver thread will be much appreciated too!)

Not a fan of Liriano at #10...not only is he going to struggle to stay healthy but his pitches aren't and probably aren't ever going to be as good as they were pre-injury. I didn't look over everything very long but didn't notice anything else I had any issues with really. Nice job!

Where's Reggie Abercrombie? If Houston was smart enough to let him start instead of that piece of garbage Bourn, then he'd be one of MLB's elite, no joke. Too bad he'll probably never get that chance though. It brings a tear to my eye to watch potential like that ride the pine 24/7.
