So ranking these guys :
1. Strasburg
2. C. Santana
3. C. Carter
4. A. Chapman?
5. D. Storen (fantasy... not real-life... closing potential is awesome)
6. J. Bell

Does that sound about right? I could see moving Storen all the way up to 3 if possibilities for this year are all that matter...

Neither Heyward, Jennings, & Taylor are available but are listed in Yahoo Fantasy Baseball contributers in their OF rankings.

Ackley is listed on their 2B rankings

http://sports.yahoo.com/fantasy/mlb/new ... season1-2b

Maybe all 4 get added at some point

yahoo did this last yr. they opened up and all that was there was wieters and laporta. then within a week, maybe sooner, they added upwards of 20 guys like hanson, feliz, wallace, etc. the same thing will most likely happen again.

We'll have to see what happens during ST and who breaks camp with their team.

Yahoo has an option to make minor league players go through waivers when they get called up. I am selecting that option in all my leagues. Leagues should never be about who gets the news first. By making them go through waivers, everybody gets a fair shot at prospects, not just the unemployed kid sitting in his mothers basement. :-D

Well, no matter when they are added leagues can still insist that all new players go through waivers at least after the draft.

How noble of you to level the playing field so you don't hold all the advantages ;-7
