As I responded to Havok, this is more of how I see it panning out, not really where I see them getting drafted. Although there is certainly overlap between the two.

I think Sizemore bounces back nicely this season.

While I like Carlos Gonzalez for upside, I really think Stewart can hit .260 with 25+ HR which is money from 2B. I would probably have McCutchen/Pence/Kubel on the list before CarGo, which just illustrates how much talent there is in the OF.

I like Carp, but he is 35 and I believe last year was a career year. I expect him to be a top 15 SP, but not top 10 like many are projecting/drafting. I don't have any numbers to support it, but call it a gut feeling.

After digging a bit more I am going to have to agree with you. I will update the list soon to reflect the change.

I think your placement on him is too high if anything. The odds of him staying healthy a full season are pretty darn small. He has only gone 200+ IP back to back one time in his career and last year's 192 IP was actually his 3rd highest total in 12 seasons in the majors. There is no way I'm drafting him as a top 10 starter.

I totally agree. He's more valuable than Kubel, for one.

Generally fine, just pointed out ones I definitely wouldn't agree with.

Ranking BJ at 34 is nice but it would take alot of guts to actually draft him there. If he's there in the 60-65 range, I'd give him a look.

I'm not sure why people wouldn't want Pedroia over Cano and the other Tier 2 2B if you can get them in the same area. The problem is Pedroia usually goes like 10-12 picks earlier. He's still 15/20 at second base and can hit .320, that's well rounded value.

I wouldn't want to bank on a high pick with a Hunter, Pena, or D. Lee type.

Kubel's nice but I don't think he can do better than last year.

I appreciate the comments. But you have to take into consideration that this list is not strictly who I would draft. It is a blend of projection and draft rankings as I found it difficult to make a list that was one or the other.

I really like BJ to rebound a bit this year. Pedroia and the 2nd tier 2B are all fairly close in my mind, and I doubt that everyone will be able to agree on who goes where. Hunter/Pena/DLee aren't sexy, but they should put up good numbers, and many people share your viewpoint on them so they are usually decent value. Also, Kubel wouldn't have to do better to be ranked in the 90s. I project him to be at .290 25-30HR 100RBI 75R would give him very similar numbers as last year, and justify his top 100 ranking.
