Prior should be higher and Soriano should be #3 instead of Helton only because he plays second base.

I'm worried about the uncertainty surrounding Soriano (new team, post-season play, etc.). It will be interesting to see if pitchers give him more breaking balls away and whether or not he can lay off those pitches. I'm not so sure. I think Helton is more consistent.

I agree with Dude 86. Soriano should be third due to his second base eligibility and SB's and Prior should be around 8. And I am not so sure about Ordonez at 10. But he is right around there.

Personally, I have:
1. Arod
2. Pujols
3. Soriano
4. Vlad
5. Beltran
6. Helton
7. Prior

then probably Nomar, Maggs, Sheffield
I don't think Bonds should be in the top-10 fantasy-wise due to his low R, RBI.

Bonds has averaged 121 runs per year for the last four years. I have him higher than everyone but Arod, Soriano, Vlad & Helton.

Good lord, I forgot Pujols. Hope that doesn't happen next week! As for Prior, my league favors hitters so I think I would still have him below Bonds. And I know that Beltran is clearly everyone's favorite pick this year, but I have him lower than most people. I know he produces well in every category, but I'm simply not ready to put him in the absolute elite yet. Perhaps with a healthy Sweeney and Juan Gonzales he'll prove me wrong. Again, that's just one man's (likely blasphemous) opinion.

This list looks just fine. Everyone has their own opinions on this, but for the most part the changes are all pretty minimal - everyone has the same names in the top 10.
At least you didnt rate B. Boone 2nd overall or anything.

Nice list ;-D
