    And yet he's probably more versatile and has more on base ability than any bench player the Reds had last year.

    Surprised to not see the Angels there.

    No, I seriously don't think so. I put very little thought into these rankings. I mean they had Nats as top team last year and what happened with that?

    Good point. ESPN is still trying to hype them. I hear Harper is trying to ad about 20 lbs of muscle on by spring training. I bet they pick him to win the MVP before the season starts.

    Can you not? A players effort is one of the few things I can gauge from my couch. Some players are lazy and still put up decent numbers, but i still wouldn't want them. Rasmus is one that immediately comes to mind.

    The Nationals got better on pitching and they were already the favorite last year - shouldn't be a surprise. I'm surprised ESPN didn't put them higher, actually.
    We all know bullpens rarely if ever carry over their success each season because it's mostly luck. I wouldn't put them at a #10 for bullpen alone either
