LINDY'S 2015 FANTASY BASEBALL TOP TEN

As always, we like to check out the competition to see how they grade out the top ten to 12 players in their annual drafts guides.  Our top 12 was posted yesterday which brings me to Lindy's top ten which they posted on the cover of their magazine which is due out in January.  Before we attack it, here is their list.

1.  Mike Trout
2.  Miguel Cabrera
3.  Andrew McCutchen
4.  Clayton Kershaw
5.  Paul Goldschmidt
6.  Giancarlo Stanton
7.  Jose Abreu
8.  Carlos Gomez
9.  Troy Tulowitzki
10. Anthony Rizzo

All right let's get to work.  Their top two was the same as ours and likely everyone else's.  Where we started to differ was number 3 where we had Stanton over McCutchen who we had four.  Our thinking is that the immense power that Stanton brings is incredibly rare in today's game and the fact he even added some stolen bases last season put him on top of McCutchen.  We than went with Jose Abreu at 5 and Paul Goldschmidt at 6 which we also noted could easily be flip flopped.  They to had that pairing in the same realm.  From that point on we diverged big time outside of Carlos Gomez.  How is it that Adam Jones is not there?  Again we continue to point out how underrated Jones is and this shows it.  Also Tulowitzki should not be anywhere near Round 1 as he comes off MAJOR hip surgery that could really hurt his numbers going forward.  Remember that Alex Rodriguez had the same procedure and was never the same again when it came to driving the ball.  We had Hanley Ramirez is Round 1 due to his signing in Boston.  Meanwhile we love Anthony Rizzo as we have been his biggest booster but Edwin Encarnacion is better for sure. 

So let us know your thoughts.  Whose list is better?  Post your thoughts below.
