C: Estrada, 549
1B: Kotchman, 848
2B: Mike Lowell (some leagues) 402, otherwise Infante, 524
3B: McPherson, 644, or Zimmerman, 853
SS: Upton, 901
OF: Kubel, 861, Wily Mo, 414, Wilkerson, 295
SP: Bedard, 302, Morris, 237, Bonderman, 163
Not so sure about RP, as even Chris Ray is in the top 200, so...

RP: Soriano: 681, Dotel, 511 (only in the right situation...), Brazoban, 390. (will be worthwhile in the first half)

That's it for now, I guess. Feel free to dissect and mock my findings. Good day, folks! :-D

Rolen at 102. I assume he gets upped when they revamp the rankings.

I agree with all those, but I meant players you'd find in the end of the draft, or undrafted. I'm all about the $1 players earning $14 etc

Ok, i'm going to ask. Why does anyone care about Yahoo rankings?

Because not everyone is a member of the cafe and if you know what players are ranked wayyyyy lower than they should be, you have a leg up on those who don't?

yes but what kind of league are you in where people dont already know about these players and dont draft based on yahoo rankings. i believe that is what hootie means. yahoo public leagues really bear no relevance to what is generally discussed on here since they are in no way related to an actual fantasy baseball league.
