Sorry if I missed this, but where would Machado be? I know 5 star as a SS, but where would he rank within the 5 star 3B's? Thanks

I'm surprised you don't mention <span class="playerdef"><a href="http://www.baseballprospectus.com/card/card.php?id=49775">Dellin Betances</a></span> value- I know he's still a set-up man, but he's one (very possible) trade away from becoming the closer in the Bronx. I'm psyched that I was just able to pick him up.

Mike- based on this (or other factors) I'd love to know who you feel will bounce back in the 2nd half (and therefore make good trade targets). Another column perhaps?

Wilson, I agree the K's are nice, but Karns has given up a lot of hits recently (not to mention 7 runs last time out).

This all makes sense Jeff, but the problem I always have is other owners who either don't respond at all to requests or flat out reject a trade without any comment. Tough to get any dialogue going in either case. How do you counteract that?

I don't really have much dead weight on my bench, would you drop Venable to stash Polanco? And just to make sure I have this right- if the organization is planning on locking up a youngster by buying out their arbitration years early, then they're not concerned with service time/super 2 status.

Ownership under 20%, still in the minors- where die Erasmo go? Maybe I'm missing him somewhere. Love these lists Bret, but it seems you've changed your thinking a bit on this one, no longer giving more weight to the guys who might be called up sooner. I mean some of these guys sound like they'll be great, but even in a 5 or 6 keeper league I couldn't hold on to someone who hasn't even had his first MLB game by the end of this season. In which case, what use would someone like Buxton be to me? Follow?

Actually Joe, when I tried contacting several writers via the website to get a few different opinions, I was contacted by your customer service and told that your staff was working on getting content together "so they have such limited availability right now" and that I should submit questions via the twitter (which I find too limiting) or via a chat (which I had but there not always picked). So excuse me if I seem a little annoyed by the overall quality of the product this year.

Joe- I know you received a lot of feedback yesterday, but I'm sorry, you still seem to be missing the main point being made- the tier rankings are important to a great many of us and are coming out too late. I realize that you "don't know everyone's draft dates" as you told a reader in yesterday's comments, but, with the season set to open next weekend, it's reasonable to assume that most drafts happen by this weekend. No? I'm not trying to beat a dead horse, but the top 15 lists are not enough. The PFM, while very interesting, does not jibe at all with my rankings (much less BP's). I understand you want to put out interesting content on a daily basis, but you'd avoid a lot of headaches for the both of us if you just swallowed your pride and decided to put out the rest of the tiers in the next day or 2. I think this is realistic as it doesn't fall to one person and the content is probably already done. If you decide not to do that, I love the suggestion of a reader survey for next year.

As a reader of this column I picked up Benoit a few weeks ago, but it just doesn't look like Papa Grande is going to lose his job (he does have the nickname and all). Who do you like more to actually take over their closer role though: Benoit or Pedro Strop (Holland is already gone)?

Did you forget Francisco Liriano or am I missing that somewhere?

Paul's comments making Lester and auto-start 2 weeks ago lead me to trade Matt Moore for him. 17 earned runs later my season may be swamped. Nice article Jason, but I have little confidence that a guy like Lester can "stop his bull-headed" ways. Seems like yet another stubborn Boston pitcher to me.

I think it's time for you to talk to someone about your Liriano issues. Your "resolve" has influenced me to bench him during some great starts.

Paul- I'm guessing that Michael Fiers gets 2 starts next week. If so, where would you place him?

Jason, I've been thinking about picking up Johnson for a while as I'm not thrilled with Cozart. How would you rank Johnson, Cozart and Drew (could get him off waivers), for the rest of the season?

Enjoyed the article Matthew. I'm a Yankee fan who married a big Sox fan from Boston. A mixed marriage if you will. To keep the peace we've decided to raise our kids Mets fans.

Paul, I share your pain about Bucholtz. I also have Vargas, Paulino, Moore and D Hudson (can you tell I'm a BP reader?) Surprised you have Vargas & Hudson as starts. Both have looked pretty bad. Paulino didn't look good in his last rehab start either, but I guess that doesn't matter now that he may be out for the year. How many of the following 1 start pitchers would you play over them next week- AJ Burnett, Cliff Lee or the heretofore mentioned Bucholtz? Thanks, Dan

Would you rank Cobb ahead of any of the following: -Lilly -AJ Burnett - Dempster - D Hudson - Volquez If so whom? Might have to drop someone to pick him up, but I'm not convinced after his last start.

I'm confused, why can't you just drop Soto and replace him. Surely there must be someone better available off waivers as he's been dreadful.

Paul- would you consider dropping Ubaldo Jimenez to pick up Ted Lilly at this point? I'm reluctant since I picked him with my 4th round pick in a keeper league.

Have to agree with the comment above about the timeline. Still have 1 more draft to go though. Any chance you could put out a combined list of OF's (I imagine AL OF's are next). And maybe pitchers too? Much appreciated.

Have you commented on a little player named Ryan Braun yet? If so, haven't seen it and I'm wondering what you think of his keeper potential now with the suspension.

My league trading deadline is tomorrow (and can't imagine most leagues go much later if at all). Any chance you'll come out with another one of these column's by then? Maybe OF or Pitching? Love em, thanks.

I have grown so tired of Wright in my keeper league that I finally traded him. I needed some K's and wins so I traded him for Haren. How does that trade measure in terms of value swap? Also playing Kotchman at corner but can pick up Carp off the waiver. If I read this correctly you feel that Carp has more value over the rest of the season, yes?

Do you think the Royals calling up some kids to the bigs will help or hurt their defense (and Paulino's chances)? Called up Giavotella yesterday.

What are your thoughts on Clint Barmes? Needed a SS and Bartlett wasn't available. He's been decent over the past month and picked up 3 hits in his debut for me last night

Would a trip to the DL for Braun really take care of it "once and for all" or would you worry about it lingering?

Just reading this now that I'm home from work. Wow, I feel like I was just dumped unexpectedly by my girlfriend! Just didn't see hit coming. Marc's articles were always the first thing I read since Will left. Love your work Marc and appreciate all the fantasy advice. Sure hope BP has some plans to fill the tremendous void. Dan

Marc, love these rankings. Very helpful. Just wondering if there is any plan to adjust your rankings at all once the 70th and/or 90th percentiles come out as you often allude to them. Also, is it me or does the pitching seem pretty deep this year? I just wouldn't mind having a bunch of 2 and 3 star guys on my staff and is making me think I might want to focus on other areas first. Thanks, Dan

Hey Marc, glad you're making upgrades to the fantasy component. Have a question about the depth charts though. Do you guys ever update it or does it stay the same from the beginning of the season? I was thinking of picking up Arias (since I have Kinsler) and wanted to know where he bats in the lineup. Unfortunately you still have Kinsler in the spot with Arias as his second backup.

Clay, the PFM still seems way out of wack. I was trying to use it the other night and it came up with Julio Borbon ahead of Pujols. Pujols!? Maglio Ordonez at #12 overall? Matsui in the top 20. Am I doing something wrong? This doesn't jive at all with my rankings (or Mark's for that matter). Dan
