Let me know if I'm missing anyone or if anyone looks like their in a bad spot based on my projections.



Awesome....but I think you may hear something about Halladay not even being the top ranked pitcher on his own team.
Don't know why but I have a suspicion someone's head may assplode.


It's really close and if I had to choose one straight up I'd go with Halladay. I'd much prefer to take Lee mid-3rd than Halladay mid-2nd though.

SP rankings are pretty much done, hopefully there aren't any glaring mistakes.

What's the thinking behind Bumgarner at 10?

Most rankings/projections have him in the 20-30 range.

Personally, i think i need to see another year from Bumgarner before i rate him that high. I think Cain would be the safer choice for that spot, with a chance to rate higher when the Giants actually score more than 1 run for him. :D

I'd guess because Giants is a Giants fan and he's a homer..... I keed, I keed



Actually, I've got him in the 12-15 range myself. He's 22 years old, had the pedigree from the start and had over 4 K/BB ratio, a 2.67FIP and a 3.10xFIP. He also gets to pitch in the NL West. What's not to like?

I am a homer indeed. Even so, the kid put up the 4th best FIP and 7th best xFIP among all starters last year and had a 4.15 K/BB as a freaking 21 year old. He's got huge potential and he showed it in the second half when he went 9-4 with a 2.70 ERA, 1.09 WHIP, and 114 Ks in 113 innings. Cain might be a safer pick but he doesn't have the potential for greatness that Bumgarner has.

Well done. For next yr you may want to add auction values.

Done thanks to TheRock who took my numbers and calculated auction values based on a shallow 12 team league starting 9 hitters (C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF, OF OF, UTIL) and adjusted for positional scarcity. ;-D

Some of the guys weren't on the spreadsheet i sent him which is why i don't have values for them yet. pitching will be up when he gets a chance to do it.

Very well done, a lot of hard work involved in that ;-D

Food for thought though. One reason I thoroughly enjoy J35J's projections is due to his brief explanations of the projections. Even if it were only for the top some odd players or certain players that seem out of the norm. Now this would be a lot of extra work (something I certainly wouldn't have time for) but just something I thought I would mention.

Great work regardless though, I'm sure this among other things will help significantly come draft day. Thanks!

thanks. i hope to go through at some point and leave some comments, but i'm kind of busy getting the projections themselves finished (still have to do RP), and writing articles for the cafe. definitely something i'll consider though.
