C- Victor Martinez- HUGE waiver pick up last year, may be able to slip him after Lopez and Rodriguez this year but we'll see.
1B- Justin Morneau- HE could be a top 5 first basemen and be picked in the later rounds. Terrific sleeper if you get him.
2B- Chase Utley- Big time underrated, but had a nice spurt midway through the season. He'll put up nice stats.
3B- David Wright- Awesome potential, I have him in the top 5 for third basemen. I think he will be about as good as Justin but probably more valuable.
SS- Nomar Garciaparra- I think you could make him a sleeper. People will probably forget about him. There aren't any shortstops I like better that aren't obvious like Tejada or Jeter.
OF- Jason Bay- Don't forget him, he is going to have a huge season this year. I like his hitting ability a lot. Also, I think Ichiro will be lowballed a lot in drafts but shouldn't be.
SP- Edwin Jackson- He played like 3 games, real nice player. I don't know how much he'll contribute, but if he plays the whole season, watch out.
RP- Francisco Rodriguez- We saw Brad Lidge become a closer from middle reliver and how much he dominated. This guy will do the same thing. I would be afraid of anyone who got him besides me.

He and Morneau like have already been mentioned are on my keeper list this year, and for many years to come.

Also, a GM 2 years ago during the keeper phase kinda BS'ed me out of Morneau for $1, but not really because of the 40 days on an active roster rule. We always just used the 110 AB's, but because he wasn't technically a rookie I had to throw him back last year. First reserve pick comes around, and I took Morneau, back for $1. I proceeded to laugh in his face. But damn, I am so lucky I got him.

SOme guys I am higher on than most

Dallas McPherson
Nick Swisher

Two rooks who will both be gems I think...McPherson more so. Bill James projects him around 30-100....pretty high praise.

I agree on Nomar, Harden, Mulder (Injuries behind him...he and Hudson vie for Cy Young in NL)

I also like Bonderman, and another former OAK SP, Ted Lilly, hitters batted .210 in the second half last seaso nand I think he is a candidate to be 13-15 win guy in TOR.
