Eh, it's alright for the first 50 or so, and then it starts to get messy.

52. Willy Taveras, OF, CIN (wait, it says Michael Bourn, OF, HOU, doesn't it...)
55. Carlos Lee, OF, HOU (big overreaction to an off year. Getting older, but should still be a reliable producer)
67. B.J. Upton, OF, TB ( 8-o 8-o really?!)
71. Aramis Ramirez, 3B, CHC (see: Carlos Lee)
72. Lance Berkman, 1B, HOU (see: Carlos Lee, Aramis Ramirez)
76. Willy Taveras, OF, CIN (whoops, misread that as Nyjer Morgan, OF, WAS)
77. Willy Taveras, OF, CIN (I'm fully aware that it said Rajai Davis, OF, OAK, just making a point)
79. Nate McLouth, OF, ATL (no problem with him being ranked here, but that reminds me, where's Corey Hart on this list? In fact, where's Corey Hart anywhere? No one's mentioned him at all since April, it seems)
80. Ben Zobrist, 2B/OF, TB (what?)
83. Jay Bruce, OF, CIN (unfortunate BABIP victim this year: .216)
85. Matt Wieters, C, BAL (lol remember this guy?)
99. Dan Uggla, 2B, FLA (mystifying drop: 84/31/87/.241 line this year right in line with career #'s)
100. David Ortiz, DH, BOS (see: Carlos Lee, Aramis Ramirez, Lance Berkman, but not quite as reliable)

It must be Friday afternoon and I must be delusional, because I literally read this at first as 'Top Hitler Keepers' and was like WTF.

I don't have time to pour over the list completely right now, but #5 is a little high for A-Rod for me since we don't know if he'll get surgery on his hip in the offseason.

sorry dean, but i see cargo way higher than 71. and those rankings are just one fantasy writer's opinion. looking at that list, i'd rather have cargo than some of the guys in the 30's. but he's definitely top 50 OF for me. i'd much rather have a high upside youngster like cargo than someone like swisher.
