Not sure how yahoo comes up with thier rankings but their always so laughable Hopefully alot of guys use them in leagues I draft in.

I noticed where some guys had eligibilty & didn't think they played 10 games but I just ran a program from another site to get my results.

Generally Yahoo doesn't do the worst job in the world at ranking the top say 60 (Haven't checked this years, but last years wasn't terrible.)

However, when ranking the depth of a position it gets pretty bad... Can definitely take advantage of the whole system if you have at least a little knowledge.

I don't think you could consider Diamondbacks Gonzolez a sleeper. So i hope thats not who he was thinking of, does anyone else got anymore. I like D.Cabrera, Zimmerman, and Herm

Probably thinking of Mike Gonzalez - he's ranked a fair bit lower than I have him.

Those are pretty high actually especially the Capuano one, 3 good months at the end of the year for a pitcher that doesn't have anythign special should not be put at 160, and he should definitely not be put in front of Bonderman, Kazmir, or C. Young. Hideki at 60 is kind of nice and I'm also liking Matt Morris at 237.

Actually Capuano's numbers slipped at the end of the year as he tired out since it was his first full season in the majors. Capuano has a pretty big upside if he just gets his control down a little better and he's only 27 years old so the control should come with more experience. His stuff is very good and he should be a good K guy, he's pitching for one of the best pitching coaches in baseball and he probably has the best pickoff move in all of baseball so he kills the running game. His only problems are a bit too many walks and the fact he's a flyball pitcher in a slight hitters park. He's also left handed which is always a plus.

I certainly don't think he's a sleeper rated at 160 but to say he's too high at 160 is overstating things a bit. Of course nothing new for a small market team to not get props for its player, I still hear people say the Brewers won't be good this year because their pitching sucks when they have one of the top 5 or 6 starting staffs in the NL.

Ryan Zimmerman-Lock for NL ROY?????

The 4th overall selection in the 2005 draft, zimmerman had .336 avg, 11hr, 38 rbi with Low A and double A in 250 ab. He then made the jump to the majors .397 in 58 ab with the nats and is a lock for the starting job with vinny out of the way. In the yahoo rankings he is ranked in the late 800's . Do you think he will be productive this year? and where would you rank him among other 3b?

I'm a humongous fan of wilkerson at 295. Not a great avg. hitter and k's a lot but Texas shoudl really bring up the power numbers he displayed 2 years ago in Montreal and with a very good lineup his runs and rbis will be up.
