Brian, First Base, Rankings

Brian’s Top 20 First Basemen Rankings and Projections for ’11


"Do you have the balls to ask your boss for 300 Million Dollars?"

If you’re in a 10 team league, you should end up with a very capable first baseman this year. No ifs, no ands, and no buts. Those of you in 12 team leagues might want to grab a one-bagger early, because after the top 10, there’s a bit of a drop off (plus you need to figure someone will draft Youkilis as a third baseman).

If you read around, a lot of experts are making the mistake of over-projecting what Miggy is going to do this year. Don’t let them fool you. Pujols is still the number one player in the game. Don’t believe me? Here’s Pujols’ 3-Year Average: 113, 42, 123, 12, .331. If you can find a line better than that, I’ll jump ship-Albert and swim for land, too. Pujols is in a tier by himself.

1. Albert Pujols- 105, 45, 120, 10, .322

2. Miguel Cabrera- 100, 35, 120, 2, .315

3. Joey Votto- 95, 32, 100, 9, .325

4. Adrian Gonzalez- 100, 40, 115, 1, .290

5. Ryan Howard- 99, 39, 120, 1, .270

6. Mark Teixeira- 110, 30, 105, 1, .270
