Postby arkk21 » Sun Mar 25, 2012 6:28 pm

1st Base:

1. Miguel Cabrera - .322 - 101 - 34 - 119 - 3: It's the consistency what warrents the top pick here.

4. Elvis Andrus - .273 - 94 - 6 - 61 - 34: I'm putting him above Rollins because I'm losing faith in Philly.

3. Jonathon Papelbon - 2.20 - 38 - 88 - 0.99 - Should suceed in N.L.
4. Jordan Walden - 2.60 - 39 - 70 - 1.17 - My surprise pick for 2012 to breakout to top 5 closer.
5. Brian Wilson - 2.33 - 40 - 82 - 1.19 - Could lead league in saves with San. Fran.

I don't use experts rankings etc...I've always said there is really no such thing as an "expert ranking"...just people like you and me guessing on who performs best each season. I've been playing Fantasy Baseball for over 15 years and have had some success by ignoring what the "experts" say. So please, enjoy and let me know what you guys think.

Thanks,
The Breadly Assassin.
