Carlos Lee 65/24/75/.260/3 from first base (a very deep position)
Adam (PACman) Jones 85/25/95/.295/12 from OF (a not so deep position)
Without using a magic 8 ball how do you justify ranking Lee higher when you project him to underperform Jones in every statistical category. Are weight and age categories in your Roto cause that’s all I see Lee having on a guy like Jones.
Or are you just trying to make sure we’re paying attention

I’m guessing he’ll say the rankings are calibrated more for roto than H2H, but saying that, they won’t change too much.

Soriano vs. Garret Jones- you’ve got Soriano ranked ~80 spots higher than Jones, but he’s not better in any particular category- is this due to higher potential upside for him? Or his guaranteed playing time? Thanks

Lack of confidence?…thinking more like 150.

I’m an Indians fan and a realist (pessimist?) so I can’t disagree with this. I have no plans on drafting any on my fantasy teams this year, and I have no confidence in them in “real” baseball either. I’m just wondering why Carrasco (probably 4th starter) makes the list above Masterson/Carmona. Do you have projections for the latter two? Again – not arguing – just curious what your numbers for them would be and why.

You are right, they do jump certain players. On the other hand, I believe that Liriano was buried last year and they didn’t jump him much at all.

Other bargains:

346. Frank Francisco
362. Jake Peavy (okay not much of bargain here)
889. Ryan Kalish
902. Eric Patterson
925. Lorenzo Cain
1075. JP Arencibia
1123. Brandon Belt
