First Base Rankings

Postby Lime » Sat Jan 29, 2005 4:31 pm

These are my rankings for a Yahoo fantasy league, 20 teams, H2H, at the 1B position. Please offer your input where you see fit.

The hitting categories are runs, homeruns, RBI, stolen bases, OPB, and SLG. The players ranked are the ones that I'm guessing will have the 1B label for Yahoo. I'm probably wrong on some, and missing others.

Don't forget these rankings take into account not only the hitters surrounding the player, but possible injury/health concerns and old age decline as well.

Top 40:

1. Albert Pujols STL
2. Jim Thome PHI
3. Todd Helton COL
4. Carlos Delgado FLA
5. David Ortiz BOS
6. Mark Teixeira TEX
7. Richie Sexson SEA
8. Travis Hafner CLE
9. Justin Morneau MIN
10. Jason Giambi NYY
11. Phil Nevin SD
12. Sean Casey CIN
13. Derrek Lee CHC
14. Aubrey Huff TB
15. Hee Seop Choi LA
16. Mike Sweeney KC
17. Erubiel Durazo OAK
18. Paul Konerko CWS
19. Ben Broussard CLE
20. Jeff Bagwell HOU
21. Carlos Pena DET
22. Lyle Overbay MIL
23. Adam LaRoche ATL
24. Robb Quinlan ANA
25. J.T. Snow SF
26. Nick Johnson WAS
27. Shea Hillenbrand TOR
28. Dmitri Young DET
29. Kevin Millar BOS
30. Scott Hatteberg OAK
31. Eric Hinske TOR
32. Josh Phelps TB
33. Darin Erstad ANA
34. Chad Tracy ARI
35. Bucky Jacobsen SEA
36. Tino Martinez NYY
37. Eric Valent NYM
38. Rafael Palmeiro BAL
39. Daryle Ward PIT

I don't want to take away all the fun and point out all the things I see, but I'll start with my two most glaring suggestions.

1. Move Texeira up - There is no way he's behind Delgado at least
2. Giambi: And you took injury into account....Move Giambi to 25ish
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

Hello,
Great list! I agree with most of who you ranked where...
A few opinions (since you asked!):

D.Lee is a little low.
Thome is pretty high given his injury history.
Bagwell is pretty low, given that your league counts OBP. I know everyone is jumping off the Bagwell bandwagon, but in an OBP league, he is still going to give you solid overall numbers and he will be cheap/fall to later rounds than he used to be.

I also agree that Texeira is a stud.

in response to limes rankings

Thome should be moved down while tex should move up

Konerko and Lee should both be moved way up

im not sure if Hafner qualifies at 1st and huff should be moved way up

Thome doesn't really have an injury history. He fewest games he's played in one season of the last 5 seasons is 143 from last year.

His 2 year (2003 and 2004) average line in Philly is:

151 GP, 147 H, 45 HR, 118 RBI, 104 R, 108 BB, .270 AVG, .968 OPS.

I'd say that ranks in the top 5 with Pujols, Helton, Delgado, and Sexson when healthy. These 1B have been consistently capable of smashing 40+ HR. After these guys I'd slot in Ortiz, Teixeira, Nevin, Huff, and the rest.
