Rotoballs Top 100 Players


So after a grueling process of ranking and re-ranking, we bring you the full Top-100 for 2011 from Rotobrian, Smugglingplums, and Backdoor Slider. On the right side of the table are the average ranks. Some of this might be surprising, but I think this is a really good list of players.

      Well Celia, I don’t blame you, seeing as Kemp, while probably the more physically gifted of the two, is a freaking slacker who looks like he doesn’t even care half of the time. But he is a base-stealing threat, while Ethier is not, hence his higher ranking.

  1. big o says:

    you guys put on a pretty united front .

    even as far down as kinsler/dunn/cutch , and even phillips,
    you guys manage to keep it within a couple of rounds of each other .

    where these “friendships” start to break down :
    heyward , j-up , werth , ethier , rios , bautista , weeks , & prado …. THIS is where i want to hear both sides .

    doesn’t have to be much …. just a few words .

    p.s. nice list .

    Good work guys! I disagree with Ryan Butler and his ranking on 3b men.
    Reynolds at 40, Casey Mcgehee at 49. I’m sorry those are way too high. They are in the same class as A Ram who still hit 241/25/83 in an injury plagued-horrible first half or Martin Prado a solid 300 hitter with 100 runs- 16/66.
    In addition, SS is very thin and Butler ranks Rollins at 77 and Jeter falls all the way to 108. Jeter is still a 314 career hitter. You can count on him to get you 100 runs 15 homers and 20 sb’s. You might not get the consistenty from Rollins, but he can offer power and speed. Both need to be ranked much higher by Butler.
    Butler can take the 200 avg ,200+ k with alot of homers from Reynolds ( although I do think he will do much better in Baltimore) and hope that Mcgehee wasn’t a one season wonder. I feel strongly that 3b can wait till later rounds if you don’t have one of the top ponies. I even have a couple of sleepers that I’m targeting in later rounds.

      You make a good argument, Darbster. I disregarded Reynolds’ insane strikeout totals, in keeping with the 5×5 format. Like you, I think he’s going to rebound in Baltimore. His career BABIP (.323) is pretty good, and it was way down last year (.257). I think 40/100 with a .245 is well within reach in 2011 in a reconfigured Orioles offense. As far as Rollins goes, his injuries concern me a great deal. Jeter? He doesn’t drive the ball like he used to. The fact that he hit the ball on the ground almost 67% of the time last year speaks volumes. Or maybe I’m just a hater. All that said, I would draft Rollins ahead of Jeter (obvious by my rankings), and pray he stays healthy. I like McGehee, and a 20/100 repeat is very doable.
