Here the Top 50 hitters on my draft board. I've been tinkering with this for days and it will look different 24 hours from now, especially outside of the top 30 or so, but at some point I have to press the "publish" button. This is based on my personal opinion about the player, so your mileage may vary. Signability is not factored in, at least not very strongly. Note that defense does factor in: this is not just about hitting.
