Being new to fantasy baseball, I used MDC last year to try and gage when players may be available in my own draft. Boy was I surprised at the actual results. The problem I see with MDC is that most drafts have 50% or less of actual participants and then most only stay for 10 rounds or less, thus making the draft results more a reflection of their rankings and not actual thought processes of fellow owners. Not sure how that compares to the other sites you have included in your rankings. I've participated in a few mock drafts this year and found the results to be about the same as last year. I agree with RunReyesRun, that the list may be used for a sanity check, but you need to create your own list of where you would like to draft a player and not count on players falling because they are ranked low on this type of list.
All that being said. Thank you for putting the list together.

I can't get the SS and pitchers to print. If I scale it down to fit, it's to small to be readable. How do you do it on 2 pages? I like to have a hard copy in hand for my draft. Can you guys help me out? Thanks
No worries, lets see if we can get you going.
When you open the spreadsheet from the link try and find the button/link to go into spreadsheet mode. From there you should go to the tiers tab as normal. Up at the top of the spreadsheet you should see a File dropdown like in any other office product. From there you will have some print options. I would go with landscape and tell it to print all sheets. Google Docs should then spin up a .pdf file for you. Go ahead and save it out then open it up and just print. It should have kept out the print layout you had opted for earlier.
Hope it works out for ya.
Also, many thanks for the MDP list again rookies and cream. Defintiely brings the \m/ metal \m/ on draft day.
This is such a great tool, thanks for all the work Rookies and Cream. Also, this should never be 2nd paged, so bringing it on back.
