Top 10 Fantasy Third Baseman (3B) – As of July 12th
Jose Bautista TOR – .334-31-65-73-5. You could argue that “Joey Bats” was the first half MVP, putting up gaudy numbers and proving last year was no fluke. You could also argue that he’s the best hitter in baseball right now. Does he reach 50? He’s [...]
I know it’s late in the game, but I’m just getting around to finishing these. Better late than never as they say, although most of you probably had your drafts this past weekend.
Evan Longoria TB – 2011 Projections: .285-36-118-105-10. With Longo coming off a down year, I see a huge campaign for this Tampa Bay [...]
If you don’t get to draft either Hanley Ramirez or Troy Tulowitzki, you can probably wait. There’s Reyes, Rollins and Jeter. Injuries, question marks and aging surround those three. There’s Andrus, Furcal and Ramirez. Not bad options. Desmond, Brignac and Bartlett. Like I said, if you miss out on the two studs, there’s no problem [...]
With question marks surrounding Chase Utley, Robinson Cano slides into the top spot. He’s 28, entering his prime, plays in a solid ballpark for lefties, in a lineup that would be competitive at an All-Star game. Don’t get me wrong, I like Utley and thought he was capable of 28/18. But his lingering health concerns [...]
A lot of the fantasy sites this season are claiming that first base is super deep and you can wait for a slugger in the later rounds. This is true. If you don’t mind having Billy Butler, Paul Konerko or Gaby Sanchez as your main guy. Personally, I won’t wait that long and will grab [...]
Here are my top 30 catchers for fantasy baseball 2011. I’d like to repeat my catcher strategy when it comes to drafting. I usually pass. I’ve never used a pick before round 15 in snake drafts or $5 in auctions. Catchers are pretty much interchangeable after the elites, so if you miss out on McCann [...]
Albert Pujols 1B STL
Hanley Ramirez SS FLA
Miguel Cabrera 1B DET – Thirsty fella?
Evan Longoria 3B TB
Ryan Braun OF MIL
Troy Tulowitzki SS COL
Carl Crawford OF BOS – I want to move him higher. Could see a .320/22/100/110/45. No joke.
David Wright 3B NYM – People question. He answers. Every year.
Joey Votto 1B
Adrian Gonzalez 1B BOS – Wouldn’t [...]
31. A. McCutchen OF PIT
32. J. Reyes SS NYM
33. I. Suzuki OF SEA
34. A. Wainwright SP STL
35. J. Bautista 3B/OF TOR
36. J. Werth OF WAS
37. J. Mauer C MIN
38. A. Beltre 3B TEX
39. D. Uggla 2B ATL
40. C. Lee SP PHI
As I see it now, that’s the rest of my top 40. Many will disagree, [...]
I’ve already posted my TOP 10 and 11-20. Here are 21-30. Once again, these are my early rankings as I see them now. I’ve already made changes to my 1-20 and I’m sure this list will see tweaking at some point as well. Here’s an early look at my rankings – subject to change.
19. Mark [...]
I started listing my early overall rankings on Friday providing my TOP 10 so far. I continue it today with 11-20. These rankings will change when my official projections come out. Basically, a rough draft on a cocktail napkin, this is how they stack up so far.
I’ve been changing my 4 thru 16 picks like [...]
