Who should I leave off, move up, or move down on Yahoo's....

Pre-Rankings List?

I'm in a 10 team, H2H, 5x5 scoring, auto draft(I know what your thinking)league. I have the 7th pick. Who should I try to get with the 7th pick. Yahoo has Mag Ordonez as the pre-ranked 7th. Should I take him. Sosa, Giambi, Berkman, Beltran, Martinez, Pujols, etc. are ranked after him.

Also, who should I leave off the Yahoo list? Anyone know of any players that are injured? I know Hoffman, Nevin, Etc. Should I leave them off and try to pick them up later if need be? For example, Biggio wont play 2nd and was hurt alot last year. should I leave him off the list? I don't see him being a useful OF in a fantasy league? Any thought would be appreciated. Thanks.

I would take Pujols if he were still available. His flexablity leaves you room to manoever. I know that Drew is also injured and injury prone. I think that Paul Byrd, Padilla, Sasaki should be biggio type busts this year. I would take them off the list, or at least move them way down.

Leave Milton off your rankings. I'm positive Biggio is still eligble at 2nd so I would still take him but remember age is catching up so he isn't as good as he used to be.

Pujols is ranked 14th on Yahoo. I have the 7th, then the 14th. I think I'll wait to see If I get him at 14. How is Pedro at 7th? Better then M. Ordonez?

These are the 1st 50 listed on Yahoo. I want to assume that most managers will stay the same for the 1st 5 rounds. I think most will.(I know everyone in the league) My 1st 6 rounds I get the 7th, 14th, 27th, 34th, 47th, and 54th picks. My current picks are in bold. I know I could end up being off by one or two but If I move someone up here and there I could land them. Here are the 54:

1. Rodriguez, Alex (SS-Tex)
2. Guerrero, Vladimir (RF-Mon)
3. Johnson, Randy (SP-Ari)
4. Bonds, Barry (LF-SF)
5. Soriano, Alfonso (2B-NYY)
6. Schilling, Curt (SP-Ari)
7. Ordonez, Magglio (RF-CWS)
8. Sosa, Sammy (RF-ChC)
9. Beltran, Carlos (CF-KC)
10. Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
11. Berkman, Lance (CF, LF-Hou)
12. Martinez, Pedro (SP-Bos)
13. Green, Shawn (RF-LA)
14. Pujols, Albert (LF, 3B, 1B-StL)
15. Thome, Jim (1B, DH-Phi)
16. Helton, Todd (1B-Col)
17. Piazza, Mike (C-NYM)
18. Abreu, Bobby (RF, CF-Phi)
19. Tejada, Miguel (SS-Oak)
20. Garciaparra, Nomar (SS-Bos)
21. Jeter, Derek (SS-NYY)
22. Giles, Brian (LF-Pit)
23. Zito, Barry (SP-Oak)
24. Gagne, Eric (RP-LA)
25. Walker, Larry (RF-Col)
26. Oswalt, Roy (SP-Hou)
27. Nen, Robb (RP-SF)
28. Kent, Jeff (2B-Hou)
29. Suzuki, Ichiro (RF-Sea)
30. Anderson, Garret (LF-Ana)
31. Jones, Chipper (LF-Atl)
32. Ramirez, Manny (LF, DH-Bos)
33. Lowe, Derek (SP-Bos)
34. Palmeiro, Rafael (1B, DH-Tex)
35. Percival, Troy (RP-Ana)
36. Smoltz, John (RP-Atl)
37. Bagwell, Jeff (1B-Hou)
38. Wagner, Billy (RP-Hou)
39. Mulder, Mark (SP-Oak)
40. Williams, Bernie (CF-NYY)
41. Hunter, Torii (CF-Min)
42. Boone, Bret (2B-Sea)
43. Koch, Billy (RP-CWS)
44. Mussina, Mike (SP-NYY)
45. Sasaki, Kazuhiro (RP-Sea)
46. Chavez, Eric (3B-Oak)
47. Gonzalez, Luis (LF-Ari)
48. Floyd, Cliff (RF, LF, DH-NYM)
49. Klesko, Ryan (1B, RF-SD)
50. Durham, Ray (2B, DH-SF)
51. Damon, Johnny (CF-Bos)
52. Colon, Bartolo (SP-CWS)
53. Cameron, Mike (CF-Sea)
54. Morris, Matt (SP-StL)

What do you all think?
Thanks for the help.

I guarantee Pujols will not last until 14th. Somebody is going to rank him in the top 10.

Possibly. I don't think these guys in my league know too much about him. But, I could be wrong. Here are the 7-14 pre-ranked picks.
7. Ordonez, Magglio (RF-CWS)
8. Sosa, Sammy (RF-ChC)
9. Beltran, Carlos (CF-KC)
10. Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
11. Berkman, Lance (CF, LF-Hou)
12. Martinez, Pedro (SP-Bos)
13. Green, Shawn (RF-LA)
14. Pujols, Albert (LF, 3B, 1B-StL)
How would a "Fantasy Baseball Cafe person" rank these guys? Should I move Pujols up to the 7th? Should I move Pedro from 12th to 7th? So far I'v heard a vote for each. Any other suggestins? Thanks all in advance!

You obviously know the guys in your league better than I do, but in the league I'm in with friends, even the casual mgrs are moving players around in the draft order, so I would assume ppl in your league will do the same (?)...here's my top 25, but I'm no expert :)

1. Rodriguez, Alex (SS-Tex)
2. Johnson, Randy (SP-Ari)
3. Guerrero, Vladimir (RF-Mon)
4. Soriano, Alfonso (2B-NYY)
5. Schilling, Curt (SP-Ari)
6. Bonds, Barry (LF-SF)
7. Pujols, Albert (LF, 3B, 1B-StL)
8. Giambi, Jason (1B, DH-NYY)
9. Sosa, Sammy (RF-ChC)
10. Ordonez, Magglio (RF-CWS)
11. Martinez, Pedro (SP-Bos)
12. Tejada, Miguel (SS-Oak)
13. Garciaparra, Nomar (SS-Bos)
14. Berkman, Lance (CF, LF-Hou)
15. Ramirez, Manny (LF, DH-Bos)
16. Zito, Barry (SP-Oak)
17. Helton, Todd (1B-Col)
18. Kent, Jeff (2B-Hou)

I'm not saying he will drop to 14th, but in my Yahoo league, I drafted Pedro at 8, and nabbed Pujols at 13. I couldn't believe he dropped that far, but apparently some people are not that high on him....
I'd kill for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Be sure to move Mariano Rivera and Foulke ahead of Dotel and Urbina (to say the least). You'd feel pretty dumb if you ended up with Urbina instead of Rivera...

Some other players to move up in the rankings:
P. Wilson
Alfonzo
Kearns
Dunn (!)
Wood
Prior

Move Floyd and Cameron down.

Good luck
