Alou, Preston and Willy Mo need to get booted 5 or more spots lower. No way Alou is ahead of Edmonds.

I guess I don't understand what you mean by your categories. By power do you mean the guy who can hit the farthest the strongest guy, or the guy who will hit the most homeruns? Same thing for speed, fastest or most SB?

If you are going sheer power, I would go something like this:

Barry Bonds
Adam Dunn
Jim Edmonds
Carlos Beltran
Manny Ramirez
Sammy Sosa
Craig Wilson
Andruw Jones
Jeremy Burnitz
Mike Cameron
Lance Berkman
Ken Grifey Jr
Larry Walker
Trot Nixon
Pat Burrell
Preston Wilson
Bobby Abreu
Vladimir Guerrero
Jason Bay
Geoff Jenkins

If you are going for most HR, my list has them at:

Adam Dunn
Carlos Beltran
Barry Bonds
Jim Edmonds
Manny Ramirez
Vladimir Guerrero
Sammy Sosa
Carlos Lee
Andruw Jones
Craig Wilson
Jeremy Burnitz
Gary Sheffield
Hideki Matsui
Justin Morneau
Jason Bay
Pat Burrell
Kevin Mench
Geoff Jenkins
Aaron Rowand
Moises Alou

I think that if you put Willy Mo on your power chart, you need Shawn Green as well.

I'm not sure I understand what your categories are supposed to mean for fantasy purposes.

But considering how many bases Podsednik stole last year I don't think you can put him behind ANYBODY except maybe Crawford. He's clearly ahead of Ichiro and Pierre.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
Otter: Germans?
Boon: Forget it, he's rolling.

i have green at first base.......and by power speed and combo i am referring to fantasy stats. i.e the guys in the power category feature power numbers, speed feature steals, and combo guys that feature both, and then within each category just their fantasy rank.

How about Vernon Wells? Had an offseason last year but should rebound in ALL categories. With no Delgado he's talking 30-30 season cause he has a green light to run. I'm think 30-20...never mind the fact he put back the 12 pounds he lost before last year. He's going to be top 10 in power and steals and top 5 in the combo. I was big on him last year too and got beat (didn't actually have him on many teams though cause there were people higher than me) but this year it seems he's adding the steals which should jump him up even if he doesn't rebound completely.

Anyone from toronto listening to the Score reports should back me up on this one.
