There are a lot I don't agree with, but its good enough for a beginner list.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Drop Chipper put in Beltre

I'd have to have Huff over one of those.

I think you have to drop Chipper and put in Beltre, he's a no-brainer, even if it was a contract year year for him. I'd take Schmidt off and put in Sheets for SP. I'd put Wilson in there for SS, not sure who to drop though, Furcal or Renteria possibly? :-? OF and RP look good if K-Rod is the closer next year. That's all I can think of right now, I'm sure I left a lot out.

I would probably find a way to get Javy and Posada into that catcher list.

not bad. I dont agree with some of them.
I wouldnt put kendall in my top 5. Javy and Posada should be there. For CF Hunter shouldnt be there. He is a lot better in real life than in Fantasy. For 1st Teix needs to be there. And 3rd Beltre should be there.

Overall nice list
