Rankings look good, Holliday seems high though. Is that ranking if he stays in STL or will it stay the same no matter where he signs?

So does anyone want to be part of the 9 - 1Bman in the first 32 picks run? Or grab a bargain guy (it's all relative) later?

These guys do all deserve their ranking but it just jumps out to me.

With that kind of depth, I am certainly waiting on filling my 1B spot until the middle rounds. I have even tinkered with the idea of selecting Hanley #1 overall. There is no question that Albert is the superior player, but with the mocks I have done/seen so far, I prefer the rosters with Hanley over Pujols. In my auction keeper league last season I went with a rotation of Helton and Konerko and was fine with that. Looking at the list above, there are some 1B options ranked in the 20's that I wouldn't mind giving a shot.

Nice lists, I think we have a record for the most thought going into an initial post!
Only really out of whack 1 I see is Nelson Cruz, that avg just doesn't deserve that lofty ranking; I would have gone higher on Hill & S Drew

I agree with the depth at 1B. It looks like it may make sense to fill that slot AND your UTIL early on, maybe with a '5 tool guy (SS or OF) sprinkled in between. Or one of the top SPs, though that has never been my cup o tea.

Yeah I did my Holliday projections as though he will be in STL next year, his spot is def. subject to change. I have him down for .328/104/26/111/12 next year.

First base is crazy deep, but I don't think I could pass up the chance to take an elite player like Cabrera, Tex or Fielder. Although I would have to think hard about Hanley vs. Pujols.

Also, thank you everyone for the warm welcomes.

Welcome ;-D With posts like this you should have been a poster long before and not just a spectator :-b I won't address everything in this post, as there is a lot to dissect, but a couple things I want to mention in the short term.

I think Montero is way too low at catcher. I actually have him in front of Posada in my own rankings and behind Wieters (like your top 4 as they match mine to a "T"). He had a nice 2nd half, and given that he has a solid pedigree, he isn't exactly an "out of nowhere," type.

I would probably move Mike Napoli down. I love his skills, but the fact Scioscia seems to like to play Mathis strong defense no stick behind the dish a ton hurts Nap's value. What hurts his value even more is the signing of Hideki Matsui as he won't likely be DH'ing at all this year unless Matsui gets hurt, which means his days off behind the dish will be true days off, not days DH'ing.

Finally, I see Michael Cuddyer listed at 2B. I'm wondering if this was an error, or if your league format awards players position eligibility based on just one appearance? If one appearance is the only requirement, I guess I'm curious why Pablo Sandoval isn't listed as a catcher.
