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 - Geovany Soto.  With his huge power numbers, Soto has supplanted Brian McCann atop the catcher rankings.  We thought he'd be good, but not this good.  Ryan Doumit will soon lose his #3 ranking to Russell Martin due to injury.

1B - Lance Berkman.  Berkman has more than double the value of the next best 1B, Derrek Lee.  He's a Triple Crown contender if he can beat Chipper in AVG.  And seven steals??  Just piling it on.

2B - Chase Utley.  Holding strong.

SS - Hanley Ramirez.  He's moved past the injured Rafael Furcal to take his rightful spot.  Furcal may return Wednesday.

3B - Chipper Jones.  Holding strong.

OF - Aside from Berkman - Nate McLouth, Josh Hamilton, Carlos Quentin.  Quentin was a brilliant waiver wire pick for many teams this year.  The streaky Pat Burrell dropped all the way to 18th.

SP - Cliff Lee, Brandon Webb, Shaun Marcum.  Runners up: Edinson Volquez, Ervin Santana.  Cool to see ERA leaders Lee and Volquez matching up tomorrow.  Odds of a 12-10 slugfest?

RP - Joakim Soria.  Knocks Jonathan Papelbon off his perch.  I have shopped Soria a bit and people don't seem to appreciate him because he doesn't have the name value yet.

I am curious - do you have any teams with many of these players?  Who has the most of them?  I had a team with Hamilton, Soria, Volquez, and Lee but I decided to swap Lee for Alfonso Soriano a week ago.  In my keeper league I have Berkman, Quentin, and Furcal.
