Beckham breaks out next season. He's too low at both positions.

Yeah - any guy who is a moderate injury risk should have expectations tempered coming off a fantastic year.

Not sure I'd have any OF in my top five, but trading this guy away after a hot start has scalded me twice in the last three seasons. If I do happen to own him again next year I don't think I'll be parting with him.

Of course, if I've got options like Cruz down at 14 (under Worth/Kemp/Upton/McCutchen???), I'll likely be getting an infielder in the first couple of rounds anyway.

Lots of nit-picky things that I would give about those lists, but at this point it's not really worth the effort. Only name that looks remarkably out of place in that first round is Tulo... can't see him being in my top 10 next year.

Good luck with the pitchers... that's going to be a huge logjam next season. Pitchers 10-30 are all going to be so close. It's going to be tough trying to figure out how to rate all of these guys' potential, history, etc, etc. Hard to believe, but I think SP is going to be even deeper next year than it was this year.

Lilly at 47? How many years does he have to perform like a top 12-15 starter before he gets drafted like one? I would love to see him prove to be a bargain again while he produces as a low end SP1/great SP2 in standard leagues. If he didn't have injury concerns to start the year, I would have drafted him on every single team. Despite that, he's been an elite SP once again and is carrying teams currently.

I'd also bump up Lee, Buchholz and Latos. Oswalt is pretty high, same with Dempster.

He's not top ten. Top 20, maybe top 15.
