    More great rankings!! This time you only listed 6 guys that did not play a single game at the position last year. Six!! You guys are are really, really good at rankings.
    Yeah Sheldon, that was sarcasm.

      Thanks for the kind note, Dave! This one is on me. I pulled the list from eligible players per the FP rankings, however, as you mentioned not all are eligible on the sites. Has since been cleaned up. This is an early run, so we’ll have it all sorted out by our next run in about two weeks. Thanks for reading.

    Because 30 seconds of research is 30 seconds you never get back.Thanks for the monumental effort of these 7 dedicated journalists,which rivals the efforts of the Allied forces during the Normandy Invasion.

    Nolan Arenado ranked 10th third baseman by Scott!!! I honestly haven’t laughed this hard in a while. Thanks guys!!! (what an idiot, and it really hurts your guys’ credibility too)

      As mentioned in our podcasts, Scott’s rankings stem from a series of projections. For now he looks like the outlier, but he is a far from an idiot. His body of work speaks for itself. Thanks for taking the time to read.

    Thanks for your comments and I’m glad I was able to brighten your day. My rankings are based on past performance. While Arenado was excellent last season, my rankings include data that goes beyond the past season. Admittedly, it doesn’t always make sense to everyone. You are free to take the rankings anyway you wish. Again, thank you for reading and taking the time to comment.

      Sorry for the idiot comment, didn’t realize I actually wrote that. Based on past performance, how can you have Longoria who has steadily declined be ranked above a steady increasing stat producer like Arenado. Also, Kang coming off knee surgery and unlikely for opening day. You are telling me you would draft these two players over Arenado? I understand rankings based on performance, but you have to add sane reason to the equation as well. Thanks for the composite rankings too, these always are more reliable.

    Thank you for your apology. I realize my rankings are unique. I also acknowledge I might be missing the boat here on Arenado. My reservation on him is the lack of patience. That has a habit of catching up with hitters and why Longoria outranked him. I put more value in plate discipline than a lot of fantasy people.

    Scott. You are a savant. You can recognize skill and talent where everyone else misses it. Thank you for sharing your genius.

    I’m not sure if I should take that at face value Len. I’m sure it is only somewhat dripping with sarcasm. As I told D, I know my point of view is unique. In terms of a composite, I think multiple points of view gives our readers a product with more depth. If all of us went according to the chalk then it really wouldn’t be worth reading. You can take what I offer any way you wish to. If you want to treat it as comedy that is your choice. If you wish to give it some consideration I am here to answer any particular questions. Again, thank you for reading and for commenting.
