Please rank these groups of players (1B, 2B, SP) WHIR

18 team 5x5 roto....The keepers are off the board and the first 10 rounds of the draft are done. I believe this is the most important part of the draft....

(If you don't want to mess with the whole list in each group, just mentioning your top 2 or 3 will help a whole lot.)

1B
Carlos Lee
Carlos Pena
Adam LaRoche
Justin Smoak
Mitch Moreland
Anthony Rizzo
Casey Kotchman

2B
Jose Altuve
Johnny Giavotella
Gordon Beckham
Sean Rodriguez
Darwin Barney
Ruben Tejada

SP
Francisco Liriano
Bud Norris
Mike Minor
Jeff Niemann
Mike Leake
Josh Collmenter
Jonathan Sanchez
Wade Davis
Chris Capuano


Thanks. WHIR, please leave a link.

1B

Lee - Best all around guy still. If you are not worried about keeper status, go for him 1st.
Pena - Best power of the bunch. If you have some high avg guys and need power, go for him
LaRoche, Smoak, Moreland - Steady guys with various upsides and downsides, not excited about any of them
Rizzo - Love his upside, although he might not do much this year. If you can snag him late, go for it.
Kotchman - bleh

2B

Not a lot to be excited about here IMO. A few solid prospect guys, and if you can snag late then go for it. Not sure who I would put first.

Not excited by Sean Rod or Beckham, although I could see Beckham bounce back as he's young enough.

SP
Liriano - Why not this late in the draft?
Minor - Best upside of the group. Go for him.
Sanchez - great K rate and potential still. Take a chance on him for K's alone.

good luck.
