I think I'd drop Rolen down a tier, but he'd be the best in the next tier down IMO, so it doesn't really make a difference.

I know Tony Clark may not get regular playing time, but how can a guy not be listed when he hits .304 with 30 HR?

BB...nice job...

I've always been in the tank regarding Justin Morneau Having said that I would move him upo to tier 3... I know he didn't have a great 2005..he got beaned in the head and had elbow problems but he'll be back in 2006 ;-D

Looks pretty good. I'd move Thomas up to tier 5 or 6. Obvious injury concern is what keeps him from going higher, but he can still mash when healthy.

To me, those stats are very similar. The huge difference in RBI's and the slight difference in homeruns makes up for the other categories that Pujols led.

If you are going to put Ortiz in the top tier, you have to put Tex too, as he has very similar numbers to Ortiz.

Yes but Pujols also has 16 steals compared to Ortiz's 1 and those numbers and the fact that Pujols has a 30 point lead in average is the reason those two are in different tiers. I believe that a 30 point better average is more valuable than 30 more RBI's in a 5x5 league.

Ditto. Plus I don't see Ortiz replicating his '05, especially if Manny and Damon leave since that offense wasn't what it was in '04 last year and it's not getting any stronger IMO.

I'd nudge mora and cantu ahead of Nomar. Nomar hasn't proven he can play baseball anymore.

Berkman should be teir 3...he's easily better than everyone else in teir 4 and arguably better than a lot of those in teir 3...
