The graphics suck. They make it really hard to move around to different players, and there's no search function. Just give me a list with links to their description window. yeesh.

I love it cause they are such a mass media outlet, yet they always screw things up. A perfect example, anyone see Jonny Gomes picture yet (ranked 35th in the OF)?

I'm sure you have ranked a few players that i would personally disagree with, but I'm not deriding you for it. If you don't like it as a source, don't use it! That simple.


Couldn't agree more...

I personally like those rankings..

I dunno, w/o any info re what they are basing them on (5x5 Roto I'd presume but, since they don't say, you sort of have to guess...) they are really just a list of guys who are really good. W/ pictures.

I'd much rather have a list w/ the stats for everyone visible at the same time. Or even a mock draft. Shoot, MLB could find some guys to make some picks for them. The interface is more like a fun toy than something anyone who was looking around for fantasy info on the internet would 'use'.

I wonder why no Ian Stewart on the top prospect list?

It's mainly who they feel are the top prospects to perform in the majors this year. Not top prospects overall in the minors, though overall they should have him in there considering they have some very questionable prospects that I doubt will get any playing time in the majors this year.

Someone who has input on player ranks has been listening to GTWMA


No way. They still have Soriano ranked too high.


My thoughts also.

So I guess I'm the only one that has noticed that for J. Gomes, they have a picture of Alex Gonzalez? :-?
