Last week we spent a full week on catchers. I don’t know about you all, but I’m still all jazzed up from the excitement.

This week, it gets even better with first base. My initial observations are that after the top 15, you’re up the proverbial creek. Sure, there are guys I can talk myself into. But the fleas increase exponentially, too.

One last thing—I had an especially difficult time with my 6-10 guys. I view them all as a really tight cluster.

We’d love to have a rankings discussion below. Tell us who we are too high or low on, and buckle up for First Base Week!
