you'd probably want to keep Rosales-- only RHed bat-- any CFer, and LHed pitcher. Otherwise, though...
I completely agree. The rankings now are much less important than they were with The Big 4 headlining the list. That's why I protect Maloney (and the '07 draftees), then offer the O's any three guys they want along with Bailey or Cueto for Bedard. The rankings at this point in time are relatively meaningless.
