w/o arguing based on your rankings, just adjusting the tiers. I would say that Ortiz is 1st tier and Morneau is 2nd tier. Also, even w/o adjusting his ranking I would at least move Helton down a tier.

My tiers are strictly based on how much value they have. I would put Ortiz in to his own tier, but I don't think, unless you are Utley or Santana, there should be only one player in a tier

Where is Adam Dunn on your list? I would think he would be somewhere between 11-15.

I'd put Ortiz in tier 1
If not, I'd move Howard down to tier 2

I don't see how you can put Howard more than a hair over Ortiz given the two players history so far so I agree with others, move Ortiz to tier 1.

I'm not a Giambi fan but he does need to be about 4-5 slots higher than 22.

With Dunn only having 2 games at first base last year, I doubt he is 1b eligible in many leagues.

What setup are these dollar value based on? I don't disagree too much with order of the payers but the amounts are way off. I can't imagine a setup where the 24th 1B is worth 50% of Pujols' value.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
