Grey's recap of the top 20 first basemen according to ESPN's player rater:

The tables below show Grey's preseason ranking, # of leagues they were drafted in, the average draft position of those selected in all 38 leagues, and the earliest and latest each was selected (ND = Not Drafted).

This is awesome, Vin! Ouch on some of these. Dunn and Morneau, especially.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Yeah, better off drafting Kendrys than Dunn this year.

That actually would be interesting to know... Where the teams ended up depending on the drafted 1st baseman...

Teams drafting our old friend Billy Butler finished first 8 times! Among 1st basemen drafted in all 38 leagues, only Gaby Sanchez never finished last. No team that drafted Aubrey Huff or Carlos Pena finished first. Even Justin Morneau (3) and Adam Dunn (2)were on winning teams.

I wasn't aware that Lyle Overbay's mom had an RCL team this year.

In all seriousness...really love this kind of data Vin. Thanks as always.

Hard to believe Pujols only brought his owners 2 titles, while Butler brought 8. Of course, I bet Butler got drafted as a CI on many teams. In fact, when you consider that Butler, Napoli, and Kendrick all likely played positions other than 1B for many of their owners, and Kila and LaRoche likely got dropped pretty quickly, it seems like the Vottobomber was clearly the most valuable 1B in the RCLs this year judging by final position of owners, with AGonz coming in 2nd.

Definitely, most teams already had a 1st baseman before a lot of these guys were drafted. Shows who the smart guys drafted later.

As for Votto, I think he benefited from being drafted later, thus pairing with a better 2nd-rounder. This season, anyways, having a pick in the 1st 4 slots did not pay off. Only 7 of the 39 1st-place teams had a top 4 pick.

Very valid point. I think the same goes for AGonz...
