Tristan H. Cockcroft: (11:00 AM ET ) Good morning everyone! Let's get right to those fantasy baseball questions of yours...

Chris, CA: When are you going to come out with your 2007 keeper rankings list? I need to know who to keep as my 5th keeper between Mauer and Holliday.

Tristan H. Cockcroft: (11:03 AM ET ) Soon, Chris, soon, though I know I keep promising that! Once the wrap-ups of the 2006 season -- after I finish up the "Lessons of 2006" series -- look for it. But as for your keeper question, I can answer that for you now, and I'd keep Joe Mauer. Matt Holliday, maybe I'd rank him higher, it's close, but Mauer's the best pure hitter at an awfully thin position. You can't let a batting champion go, especially not a catcher.
