Wilkerson for sure at 295
Odalis Perez at 304
Ollie Perez at 377
Hampton could be a steal
Clint Barmes at 432
Curtis Granderson at 643
Verlander at 735
Edwin Jackson at 738 (could be #2 by the end of ST)
Youklis at 778
Mike Jacobs at 845
Kotchman at 849
Andy Marte at 853
Ryan Zimmerman at 855 (Starting 3B)
HERMIDA AT 881
BJ Upton at 903


All of those guys can have an impact this year.

because if you do a live yahoo draft, people just naturally scroll through the interface and might forgot about someone like hermida who is at the very bottom of the ranking list


Yeah I agree. I do some prep for any draft (I only play in a buddy league every year), but I found this thread to be a fantastic idea! Everyone's got some form of a cheatsheet going into the draft, but there are always players that who should be drafted that aren't.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Just to counter the guy on the first page, I play in a very competative league for the past decade. We still have guys that would forget about Hermida or not be able to find him quickly in their list because of his ranking. I'm sure that's the case with 99% of the leagues in the world.

my fave is mike jacobs at 845. it seems like a lot of people are underestimating him. with 500ab's this year he could put up some monster #'s...

Let's not get carried away. Respectable numbers, maybe (i.e. 15th round value from a 20th round pick). Only a few players actually put up MONSTER numbers. He's a good sleeper though, especially if the Marlins have any kind of catching crisis and he has to play there for a week...

in 100ab's last year he put up a .310avg, 19r, 11hr, 23rbi. that projects to about 100/50/115. i realize that he isn't going to hit 50 hrs, but i don't think 35 or so is out of the question. and i think he's a lock for 100+ rbi batting cleanup, even with florida's lineup he is still batting behing cabrera. the runs may not be there, but i think he has a solid shot at 80/35/100 with an average around .285-290 worst case. a lot better #s than a lot of guys going ahead of him will put up.

Wow, I think you are in for a big surprise if you expect those numbers from Jacobs. There is a fairly raging debate around here about whether MCab will be able to maintain those kinds of stats... Like I said, Jacobs IS a good sleeper- but his best numbers are like 25hr and 85 rbi, most likely about 20 and 70.

You will lose leagues by developing irrational crushes on players like Jacobs. Feel free to draft him late, but he's no Lyle Overbay.

by no means would i draft him as my starting 1b, but i will gladly take him in every draft if i can get him after the 15th round or so. and i personally think he will best overbay in nearly every category.
