Quote of the day
"Everything is OK. We can't knock a great effort. Maybe we deserved this game, maybe we didn't. They held home court. We'll go back and do the same, and we'll come back here for Game 7." -- Phoenix guard Steve Nash, after a buzzer-beater loss in Los Angeles

Daily blurb
With almost two months of the MLB season in the books, some of the top hitters have yet to earn their lofty fantasy draft rankings. For example, Albert Pujols currently ranks only 14th among all hitters in total fantasy points (RotoHog SalCap). Hanley Ramirez ranks 30th. Alex Rodriguez, #37. Those were the consensus top three picks in the RIBC leagues. Chase Utley, the 4th pick, currently ranks 23rd. Not until we get to Ryan Braun do we see value matching expectations, as he was the consensus #5 pick, and currently ranks #4 among hitters.

Using a ranking system more in synch with the scoring framework of the RIBC leagues doesnít really change much. In fact, one such system ranks Pujols at #20, Hanley #32, ARod #79, Utley #21,and Braun #4. Pretty similar, except for the negative discrepancy for ARod.

Those guys may still rise to the top of the heap as the season matures, but at this point, it looks like getting a top draft pick in the spring isnít producing much of an early harvest.

Enjoy the long weekend!

Same for the other ranking system as well.
