Cafe Consensus Rankings: 30th Pick

Postby GiantsFan14 » Tue Feb 25, 2014 12:20 am

Pujols goes 29th. Supposedly healthy and while it's not likely we'll see him return back to what he was, I think we'll see a nice resurgence.

Taken so far:
1. Mike Trout, OF
2. Miguel Cabrera, 3B
3. Paul Goldschmidt, 1B
4. Andrew McCutchen, OF
5. Carlos Gonzalez, OF
6. Ryan Braun, OF
7. Robinson Cano, 2B
8. Adam Jones, OF
9. Chris Davis, 1B
10. Clayton Kershaw, SP
11. Hanley Ramirez, SS
12. Edwin Encarnacion, 1B/3B
13. Prince Fielder, 1B
14. Joey Votto, 1B
15. Bryce Harper, OF
16. Troy Tulowitzki, SS
17. Adrian Beltre, 3B
18. Jacoby Ellsbury, OF
19. Evan Longoria, 3B
20. David Wright, 3B
21. Yasiel Puig, OF
22. Carlos Gomez, OF
23. Yu Darvish, SP
24. Jason Kipnis, 2B
25. Dustin Pedroia, 2B
26. Giancarlo Stanton, OF
27. Justin Upton, OF
28. Freddie Freeman, 1B
29. Albert Pujols, 1B

Should I just stop here if people's rankings are going to start diverging so much? Are people interested in this continuing?

I'd say keep going. It keeps the board fresh and people keep putting votes up there. I think this is great list to look at during a draft, so the longer it is, the more useful it is.

As much as I like some of these OFers, I gotta think the shortstops have gotta start dropping...

I've voted for Jay Bruce 3 straight times now. Looks like he will finally get through.

There are about 10 pitchers that could realistically be added to this list in the 30's. Felix, Scherzer, Fernandez, Lee, Strasburg, Wainwright, Bumgarner, Verlander, Sale, Price... maybe even Greinke could realistically be the next pitcher taken on any given draft. So before we make another thread about pick 31, we should see which of these pitchers the café prefers before including them in the next thread. Strasburg and Wainwright might be safe as the next 2 pitchers, but after that the opinions on the next best pitcher fluctuate.

I also say keep going, it's been something to look forward to every day. I like nikki's idea of breaking up the tiers of each position a little before resuming the overall draft.

Maybe we need an interim poll where people get to pick, say, 8 hitters and 4 arms and the results of that poll make up the list for 31+. Or something that would use the poll function to mimic tiers. We could do that every dozen picks or so to keep the list fresh and if the initial list was something like 16-18 names long we wouldn't run out in between tier selections.

I'd say kick out the guys getting zero (or 1 or 2, even) votes for at least the following two polls. And add in a couple other guys who are the top-ranked according to a good set of ADPs. It's highly unlikely that they'd go from getting no votes from 29 voters, and then be the most-voted for in the following round.
