for the most part i agree, but i'd demote wells to 2nd tier, make a 4th tier for pods, and considering the state of mags and that knee, i'd float him between top and 2nd tier. lee's a solid 2nd tier guy, but he's no abreu/beltran/manny.

why is podsednik very low in all the lists? is it his average, and if so, where would pods be if he got it back to 300 like last season.

If I thought he'd really be a 300 hitter in the future I'd move him up a notch or two, sure. The reason I ranked Pods so low was I based much of my rankings on future seasons, as the poster requested. Much as I like how hard Pods plays, I just don't think he has the upside of many of the others on the list. ;-)
