That's a pretty solid looking team. What is it with people mocking over at ESPN? They have no love for Quentin or the Flyin' Hawiian.

That said, they are really hidden away in the ESPN rankings. Every time I do a mock there, I'm thinking "I'd never get away with this in the RCL... "

Both have injury concerns, but I like both of them (A LOT). In fairness, Quentin is recovering from wrist/hand surgery, which is supposedly bad for power numbers and Victorino has always been an injury risk. Still, they are WAY down on the ESPN default rank -- as is Adrian Gonzalez (is going in the 70s). ESPN must also be feeding their sheep a steady diet of avoid Ryan Howard b/c the dude is dropping in the late second in every draft I've been a part of (and if I see him in the second, you better believe I'm taking him). Kinsler is way down on their list too (got him at 23).

I'm playing in a CBS cash league, so I'm gonna spend some time over there understanding their default rankings and what hidden gems I might be able to pull off over there.

Dunn is another one who seems way down - 100-110 in some I've done.

OK - the guy is a big AVE drain, but still...
