Season-To-Date MVPs

Which players have had the most roto value at each position?  I used the player rater at ESPN to find out.

C - Brian McCann.  He's supplanted Geovany Soto.  We may be seeing another '06 from McCann, making him a huge bargain in the fifth round.  Bengie Molina has quietly moved into the #2 ranking, racking up RBIs as many thought he would.

1B - Lance Berkman.  He's still crushing the ball and has stolen six bases this month.

2B - Chase Utley.  He's having an off-month, but that still means an .851 OPS.

SS - Hanley Ramirez.  Miguel Tejada is threatening, Rafael Furcal is dropping.

3B - Chipper Jones.  The race for .400.  It's only May though.

OF - Josh Hamilton, Nate McLouth, Carlos Quentin.  I am still amazed that aside from Berkman, these are the three best fantasy outfielders.  Players like these win leagues, since they were so mildly regarded in March.  And Ryan Ludwick ranks sixth.

SP - Cliff Lee, Edinson Volquez, Roy Halladay, Brandon Webb, Shaun Marcum.  This group is similar to the outfielders - Lee, Volquez, and Marcum got very little respect in drafts.

RP - Mariano Rivera, Jonathan Papelbon, Kerry Wood.  Wood has eight saves and 20 Ks this month.
