  1. Yeah. A lot of the positions are top heavy, but CF looks like the top position right now. Pitching is very deep right now and the elite players are few and far between, but there are a lot of young players right now (28 and younger) who could carry MLB back to the top.


  2. I think there may be a few Rockies players that are rated higher than they should be. Very interesting to see how deep pitching is at the moment. There are some great outfielders out there.
