This is my Top 10 for 2012. It’s changed about thirty-six times. And I’m sure it will change again before I start drafting.
Miguel Cabrera 1B, DET. After the signing of Prince Fielder, I wanted to move Cabrera into the top spot surpassing King Albert. Cabrera has been a model of consistency, is in his prime [...]
Top 10 Fantasy First Baseman
Adrian Gonzalez BOS – .329-10-46-34-1. Gonzo has been everything Boston fans were craving. He’s hitting well, showing power and is tied for 1st in MLB with 46 RBI (Jay Bruce).
Joey Votto CIN – .338-7-32-39-4. The reigning NL MVP is having a solid start to his 2011 season and picked up [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
He’s one of very best hitters in the game, left-handed hitter, tremendous ability to control the strike zone, hit for power, power to all fields. His natural stroke is to the opposite field, which is a great fit for our ballpark. He hits the ball the other way, so he’ll be using the wall, and [...]
First baseman Joey Votto of the Cincinnati Reds was named the National League’s Most Valuable Player.
For more info, you can find some at MLB.com.
Votto is a Canadian Beast. His stat line this past season: .324-37-113-106-16.
I am a big fan of Votto’s; I took him in every league I was able to draft him in (already [...]
The first base position in 2010 claimed nine of the TOP 100 overall fantasy players at season’s end (ten players if you include Jose Bautista and his four games at first). At a position where depth and options seemed plentiful before the season began, first base became a bit of a let down. Big boys [...]
Sorry, we’re closed…. This is the first year since 1994 that there was not a single player in either league to reach this prestigious mark. Last player to do it? Ian Kinsler of the Texas Rangers, last season, 31/31.
Joey Votto 1B, CIN – 37/16 – In his breakout season, Joey Votto chased [...]
Jay Bruce CIN – Had 2 HR and 4 RBI. Bruce has got 20 on the year – 6 in his last 5 games. Of course, he hasn’t played since August. But now that he’s active and playing, he should be used in most mixed formats.
Miguel Tejada SD – The veteran shortstop came through for [...]
Triple Crown Chase – Let’s be real, no one will win the Triple Crown this year. It’s too hard to do and too many great players contending. Albert won’t reach .340. Cargo won’t hit 40 HR. Votto will finish second in all three categories. Moving on…
Carlos Gonzalez COL – Cargo went 1 for 3 with [...]
