JC - If I'm curt with you it's because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need BP to act fast if they want to charge people for this information So, pretty please... with sugar on top. Change the effin rankings. Honestly though, if this was just some random free site, I wouldn't have said anything. This is a site that cost money though, so I, and the rest of the subscribers deserve much higher quality than this. I posted this ridiculous OF ranking on some of the leagues Im part of. People thought I was joking, they couldn't believe that this could be anyone's list. I mean come on, Bobby Abreu under Mike Cameron, Felix Pie and Jody Gerut???? Abreu is hitting 3rd in a stacked Angels lineup and is a lock for .280-100-20-100-20. How on Earth can he be ranked so low? My beef is with BP letting this get posted on a site that WE PAY FOR! There has to be some kind of editor that controls the content that's posted on here. It blows my mind that this list was approved by the higher ups. Once my temporary subscription is up, I will NEVER join this site again. Not just for that, but this site is generally pretty weak. You can get 10 times the info for free at ESPN and better projections for free at fangraphs.com. No wonder why they wouldn't give me a refund ( tried to cancel the same day I joined ). I cant do anything about that now, but I will make sure that everyone knows the truth about this site. Does that make me a jerk? Maybe to some, to others I'm a well informed baseball lover that knows when something stinks. That's all I have to say about that, enjoy blowing your hard earned money on this site.

HAHA...this site is HILARIOUS!!!!! "Other readers have rated this comment below the viewing threshold. Click here to view anyway" I guess I got too many - ratings, oh my god. Instead of posting a reply to state why the rankings are good, you guys just hit - instead? Come on now, you guys must be really drinking the Kool-Aid to agree with this Horse____ OF list. I hope some of you guys are in my league and use this list. I cant wait to hear someone's explanation for why Maggs and Dye are ranked 51 and 52 but JD Drew is at 35, Bradley is at 29 and Ethier is at 20. None of them steal bases so that cant be it. It cant be because they have more value in a keeper league because Bradley and Drew are ranked so much higher and neither has made it though a year healthy. I would LOVE to hear the reasoning behind the rankings. Really the Lee at 25 just blows my mind! He's one of the most consistent bats in the entire league. So go ahead you brave flock of sheep, drink the Kool-Aid and hit -...it just makes me stronger!!!!

WHAT THE EFFF IS THIS LIST???? Maybe Im missing something, correction, I HAVE TO BE missing something. I dont give a crap what format you are in, if Carlos Lee is the 25 OF taken, there is something really wrong. Hart over Hamilton? Corey Hart is the most overrated player in the league. How on Earth is he ranked over Hamilton, Markakis, Man Ram??? Because he steals 20 bases???? The guy hit .268 last year with 76 runs scored!!!!! Justin Upton at 10?? REALLY. What has JUSTIN UPTON done to be ranked 5 picks ahead of Matt Holliday, 9 picks ahead of Jason Bay and 15 EFFIN PICKS AHEAD OF CARLOS LEE!!!!! WOW...all I can say is WOW. I knew something was wrong when I saw Beltran #1 over Braun, but I could have never imagined the stupidy in the rest of the list. BJ Upton over Sizemore??? Ethier, Miledge and Dukes over Lee??? I have to be missing something here..HAVE TO!!! There is no way someone was actually paid to come up with this garbage. Oh I see, it was a big joke right? OH man, you got me. You had me going there for a minute...HAHAHA..that was a good one.
