Final 2008 Catcher Rankings

  1. Joe Mauer – Minnesota Twins
  2. Brian McCann – Atlanta Braves
  3. Russell Martin – Los Angeles Dodgers
  4. Geovanny Soto – Chicago Cubs
  5. Ryan Doumit – Pittsburgh Pirates
  6. Bengie Molina – San Francisco Giants
  7. Kelly Shoppach – Cleveland Indians
  8. A.J. Pierzynski – Chicago White Sox
  9. Chris Iannetta – Colorado Rockies
  10. Yadier Molina – St. Louis Cardinals Read more

Year End Awards & Rankings begin tomorrow!

I should have a better schedule laid out shortly, but we will begin our Year End Awards and Rankings tomorrow.  There are rankings coming for every position, looking at the sleepers and the busts, as well as all your normal year end awards (as well as a few special ones as well).

Keeping checking back as even though the fantasy season has come to a close, there is still plenty to talk about throughout the off-season and heading into 2009!
