It looks like CBS has just updated their 2010 player rankings today, fyi.

The good thing about CBS rankings is that some of my fellow league mates rely on them which gives me an advantage! :-B
When it comes to exaggerating, I always give 110%.

That is definitely the best thing about them. I check them out and they aren't quite as terrible as they normall are. Maybe it's because I'm still up in the air on alot of the rankings myself.

Not nearly so bad IMHO. Definitely no worse than any other major publication to date.

Plus, they get points for "Jose B. Reyes". Cuz that other Jose Reyes keeps confusing me ;-7

Yes, I hate how CBS uses middle initials for some players, even those that don't seem to share a name with other major leaguers. Gives me about 15-20 min extra work every time I update the MDP. :-[

A couple things that jump out at me after a quick glance are votto as the 12th ranked 1st baseman 8-o and I know I like Carlos lee more than some but the 23rd ranked outfielder is just crazy.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

1st base is crowded...I can see alot of variations when it comes to 1B. Youklis, Morneu, Votto, Morales, Berkman, and Sandoval should all be rated pretty close. I'd probably throw Reynolds into that group too because I don't really trust him.

Personally, I like Votto quite a bit so I'd rank him near the top of that list. I think he should be drafted right around where his ADP is...35ish. He's a very talented young player that plays in an awesome hitters park.

Thing that jumped out at me was Joakim Soria as the #14 reliever. Behind all those chumps? 8-o
