With the top 20 catchers ranked, how would you list the top 20 1Bs? As before, I will provide my rankings in a day or two.

Hafner may not be 1B eligible in some leagues, he only appeared in 11 games at 1B.

Just a heads up ;-D

Thanks for the heads up on Hafner. I'm going to include him, but he won't qualify in my leagues :-/ I only play in keeper leagues so some guys might be higher than if only concerned with 2005. Also before anyone screams " Why No Huff?" he is on my 3B list.

Alrighty, to jump into the fray:

1. Albert Pujols (as if there was any doubt)
2. Todd Helton (Colorado)
3. Jim Thome (see Pujols above)
4. Mark Teixeira (three words: homers, homers, homers)
5. Carlos Delgado (ready for a better season than 2004)
6. Paul Kornerko (the most AL homers this season?)
7. Richie Sexson (i know, injury questions)
8. Sean Casey (same as Richie above)
9. Phil Nevin (slugging percentage)
10. Brad Wilkerson (power/speed combo)

At least in Yahoo leagues, Durazo will not qualify for 1B. :-? You need a minimum of 15 games at a position, and he played less than that. He'll qualify only at the utility (DH) position 8-o

I think Morneau, while not a sleeper, is a bit undervalued, as miguel cabrera was last season. He might be worth a pick if you are strong at the other power positions or you have a power MI or Catcher. He has got much room to improve, and i look for a good year from him.
