one quick question...
for players that are multi-position eligible, is there a way to make them appear in the sorted single position lists?

for example how do i get Jose Bautista (3b, OF) to show up when i sort by "OF"?
or is there a way to sort by more than one position?

Thank you very much, Rookies & Cream!

Zimmermann at 141?? The most undervalued dude, period.

My draft sheets have columns of every position (including CI, MI, DH) with an "X" at each players eligible position. That way, you can filter and sort any way you want. That would be a bitchin' enhancement to this tool! ;-D

Ryan Braun at 29 would be a big reach for a guy who's all but guaranteed to miss 50 games to start the season. I think the 50-60 range is about right


It is very plausible that he doesn't get the suspension considering all the rumors about it. Even if he misses 50 games you can play another OF for that stint and Braun for 112 games mixed with 50 games of replacement level still has a ton of value. It really depends on your league structure how much tying up a roster spot hurts obviously.

Ryan Braun is a 2nd rounder when you KNOW which 50 games he is missing! Much more valuable than Nelson Cruz when you DON'T KNOW which 50 games he is missing. Ryan Braun + Replacement Player = Great Value... I will jump all over that.

Yup, this is very key. You hear a guy will only get 400-450AB and you're thinking...no thanks. But if you know exactly when those ABs will come then it negates a lot of that problem since you can have someone else in for the time being. With that said, I still probably won't own him.

I don't believe I received it. At least, it's not posted.

In the process of moving right now and am extremely busy at work, but I expect an update this weekend. Once drafting begins on the major sites (yahoo, CBS, ESPN), expect more frequent updates. ;-D

Rooks, you usually break this down into tiers correct?
