In a 12 team Keeper League this is the Order the top 10 SS went in our league.

Round 1 - Arod
Round 2 - Nomar
Round 2 - Tejada
Round 3 - Renteria
Round 6 - Jeter
Round 6 - Matsui
Round 7 - Furcal
Round 7 - Berroa
Round 8 - Reyes
Round 8 - Cabrera
I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. -Crash Davis

He should still qualify as an SS in most leagues though, so I think you still put him at the top. In terms of keepers I can see your point, but there is still the chance that he plays some at SS this year (if Jeter gets hurt or if the Boss decides so, lol) so I think he's still worth placing 1st.

My question is in Yahoo, will he qualify at 3B from the start or do we have to wait until he's played 15 games there?

if you look here: ... =rodriguez

they already have A-rod listed at 3b/SS

yahoo rocks!

Thats great. Thanks ;-D

I have those two close, but since you can probably get Matsui cheaper I'd recommend it. You could also let both of those players slide and take Rollins much later. I have him better than both.

By the way, I'm sure this will get many a negative reaction but I'm getting a bit tired of defending anything that goes against "common knowledge". Common knowledge stinks, especially when it comes to fantasy baseball. If you don't realize that it probably means you haven't been playing the game for very long.

This is just an attempt at stopping an argument with Jackal and Stabone (The Dream Team), the reigning defenders of fantasy baseball's status quo, before it starts.

Just curious as to why you rate Rollins so high. Won't he be hitting at the bottom of the order?

Here's what I currently have.

1. Alex Rodriguez
2. Nomar Garciaparra
3. Miguel Tejada
4. Edgar Renteria
5. Derek Jeter
6. Orlando Cabrera
7. Rafael Furcal
8. Kaz Matsui
9. Jose Reyes
10. Angel Berroa

Bowa has stated that he's looking at batting Byrd and Rollins 1 and 2. The guy that gets the short end of the stick is Polanco who's going to lose AB and R batting 7th.
