Early Risers

I know its early but here are the top guys in their position on my list:

C: Victor Martinez : This guy is consistent and has some guys in the lineup he can drive in (Grady Sizemore) and some guys who can drive him in (Travis Hafner)

1B: Albert Pujols: There is no doubt this guys will crush 30+ homers and belt in 100+ RBIs. His numbers have gone up every yera he was in the big leagues.

2B: Robinson Cano: Look for this guy in '08. He has a lot of guys in hte lineup that could drive him in giving him a lot of runs. But he will be hitting in the bottom of the lineup causing RBI probelms.

SS: Jose Reyes: One of, if not the, fastest guy in the Majors. He can swipe a base before you can blink. He will be up there in runs and stolen bases along with an above average batting average.

3B: Alex Rodriguez: This guy's worst years produce more than most guy's best. He will do everything from homers to RBIs to slugging percentage. One of the first pick in any draft.

OF: Matt Holiday: He had an MVP season last year, producing monstrous numbers in homers and RBIs and this guys ain't stopping just yet.

OF: Vlad Guerrero: This guy is very consistent. Always puts up numbers in all categories. He is a solid pick that you can never go wrong on.

OF: Ichiro: Many people wont take Ichiro because he lacks homers and RBIs. But will give you an amazing batting average with plenty of runs and stolen bases.

DH: David Ortiz: This guy crushes everything. Hitting behing Manny will produce many RBI chances.

SP: Johan Santana: This guy is an ace. He will rack up K's like nothing. Now that he is with the Mets. His run support will increase, making his stock even higher.

SP: Josh Beckett: Had a steller season last year. Racked up a lot of K's with the lead in wins. His run support is never a factor making him tops on my list.

RP: Trevor Hoffman: This guy tops my list. MOST SAVES ALL-TIME are the only words you need. He will be a closer for the rest of his career so no worry on the number of saves he will get. The Padres will give him plenty.
