2012 Fantasy Baseball Rankings: 1st Edition

Pitchers and catchers report in one short month from now, and already one key catcher is likely out for the season (Victor Martinez).  Also, the pitchers formerly known as Leo Nunez and Fausto Carmona don't really exist (false names and birth certificates).  Little league problems are all grown up now and have made it to the major leagues.  It seemed like only yesterday we were talking about the Danny Almonte's of the world.  Anyway, these are my first fantasy baseball rankings of the year.  Enjoy it and look for the sortable by position rankings up soon.
