Josh Reddick has been amazing and I think he deserves some credit for what he's done.

I'm sure he does but if we were drafting today I still wouldn't take him in the top 50, it is just so unlikely he keeps it up. Strasburg just barely made my top 50 which I'm sure will disagree with most as well but there is no way he is going 200 innings so he just doesn't have enough innings left to be much above the 40s. This is why you get a range of people though since others will disagree.

That's why I love the big board because as the season wears on, those guys ranked lower pre-season start to creep up the lists as they continue to perform or flop in the 2nd half. Thanks to the submitters so far, we have a good base here, and any more submissions tonight are more than welcome. I'll be up late tonight/early tomorrow working it out so feel free to submit all night.

I had Strasburg right at 50, I don't think he can go much higher than that with all this talk of an innings limit.

As for Reddick... I think there is a solid chance he is a top 50 player this year. .270 30/15 is totally realistic I think and I'm gonna at least mention him on there until he gives me a reason not to.

I think there is a decent shot he ends up top 50 because of the hot start, I don't think he is top 50 from this point on I guess is the big difference for me. Just seems like the case of a player who had a really hot month, I have to see him sustain it for at least another full month to buy into it at all.

Agreed.


Sorry didn't get my list done...I'll try to get it done for next Monday's board though.

It's being reviewed and tidied up right now, and Salty is working on the spreadsheet where all the lists will be displayed.

I will have the "Big Board" posted tomorrow morning.

There has to be a way to weight the rankings so someone who only get's put on a list once doesn't get "averaged" into an overall Top 50.

I'm going to say that anyone that submits a Top 50, all players not listed will be given a ranking of 51 to reflect their omission from the list.

Salty- The mathematical abnormalities are avoided easily by not doing the board strictly with math. I am using my lesser human brain to distinguish when someone doesn't belong exactly where the rankings say, like if they are omitted from a list when they are in everyone else's top 10 or something like that.
