Fab Five Freddie (USAT)

Now these people, they want ranks.

My first go-round with 2014 prices are below. Today's assignment is the corner infield, the first basemen and third basemen. Don't ask me where Alex Rios or Clayton Kershaw are, they don't qualify.

I've taken the catchers out of this exercise - they'll have their own day in the sun. Players at the same price are considered even. Assume a 5x5 scoring system, which is (still) the best way to play.

The ranks are unscientific, my gut feel if you will. I'm not looking to push alphabet soup on you. I don't draft by acronym. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it, that just isn't my thing.

I reserve the right to tweak this list over the first 24 hours. Add your respectful disagreement in the comments; win the debate, win the rank. Welcome back, Kotteras.
