Never end a sentence with a preposition. There is your grammar lesson for the day.

However, it's perfectly acceptable to end a sentence with a preposition in English. It's just a bit weak, unless it can't be avoided.
Which is why: "Guys on whom you believe the consensus may be/is wrong" is better.

Also, I disagree with Iconoclastic about Jason Bay. The guy's a beast and he doesn't even have anyone hitting around him in that lineup. The guy's gonna be huge for quite awhile and deservedly so. I definitely think he could be early second round value.
I agree with you on Mauer. Frankly, if not for the 10-12 SBs he brings to the table, he would be more or less in the same medicore caliber as most of the other top 12 ranked Cs not named VM. I understand there is upside, but his power is subpar even for a C. Basically avg and a little SB help.
Here is a easy place to find numbers versus teams. Lee was 4th in run support. His record was a big fluke.
