Because they're allowed to browse these forums while at work.

I, on the other hand, am looking over my shoulder as we speak (or I should say "read").

I am not familiar with Mark Harmon's credentials. But based on my past experience, Yahoo has very poor rankings because they do not accuratley account for injured players and the impact of rookies.

Usually a little research on past stats of players cn give you a good indication of how much faith to put in a so called "experts" rankings.

Expert is a loose term for someone that gets paid to write about fantasy baseball

The only Yahoo "expert" who I have any faith in is Brandon Funston.

Yahoo rankings?

The auto rankings are not the same as the expert rankings. The auto rankings are dumb machines.. they dont take other factors outside performance into account because theyre not supposed to..

I like them.. wish there were a couple more writers.

Mark Harmon starred in Summer School so I will listen to anything he says.

I think they consistantly give poor advice.

Funston is a joke.

Harmon is worse.
