You're on the best one right now!
Add a third to that.
You have already found it.
I keep hearing how good the Cafe cheat sheets were so I looked at them for the first time tonight (Relief Pitchers) because I was involved in a thread where someone rated Rhodes ahead of Borowski as a closer this year.
Well thank God I thought, the Cafe has Borowski ahead of Rhodes, if only by one spot :-
But when I looked a little closer, the only reason Borowski was ahead of Rhodes was because Lo (I presume Arlo) gave Rhodes a nil rating (great choice IMO)
3 of the 6 so called experts rated Rhodes above Borowski, if only marginally.
I looked a little deeper and I found a huge anomoly on that list.
Eddie Guardado ranked 17th as a RP???? despite the fact that four of the seven "fantasy veterans" rated him in the Top 12 and two of those four rated him as high as Top 7. The obvious reason for this anomoly was because RJ (whoever the heck that is?) did not rate him in the top 35 RP and Big L (Lebowski?) rated him 30th best.
And these guys are fantasy veterans
I looked through more of RJ and came to a quick conclusion that if his (I presume it is a bloke) rankings were discarded the Cafe cheat sheets would be far more accurate.
Following are some of his pearlers.
Bengie Molina not ranked in the top 25 catchers.
Dimitri Young rated 5 places ahead of Kevin Millar as a 1B and not ranked as a 3B.
Greg Maddux not ranked in the Top 60 SP
Todd Walker and Jimmy Rollins not ranked in the Top 25 in their respective positions
Need I go on.
Please edit this crazy effort out of the equation and they will be worthy of paying attention to.
