Pre-Season 2009: First Base Rankings
Cody Crosby, FantasyJuice.com

FantasyJuice's experts have independently ranked their top 25 first basemen heading into Spring of 2009.

Albert Pujols appears to be the favorite again with Miguel Cabrera as a close second.

Some surprises on the list this year are Chris Davis, whose quick promotion to the majors last season led to solid numbers, and Pablo Sandoval, who will eventually qualify at catcher in most leagues.

These rankings will be updated during Spring Training to reflect position changes and Spring performance.
