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 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 [...]
Ryan Braun MIL – How does one celebrate after signing a $105 million extension? By going 12 for 25 for the week with a stat line of 3 HR/9 RBI/9R and a SB for the cherry on top.
Ichiro Suzuki SEA – Hit .433 last week while stealing 4 bases and scoring 4 times. I [...]
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 [...]

32. J. Reyes SS NYM

40. C. Lee SP PHI
As I see it now, that’s the rest of my top 40. Many will disagree, [...]
These are the final 2010 fantasy baseball rankings for the outfielders. Speed is the theme here. Lots of guys who stole lots of bases. Also, the overall average age is coming down a bit, with older veterans getting weeded out. Something to think about as 2011 drafts approach.
The number in the parentheses is their pre-season, [...]
Who out there really saw 54 HR coming? I didn’t. I don’t even think Jose did. But, Mr. Bautista was the number one ranked third baseman in fantasy baseball in 2010. He led the majors in HRs and was second to Miguel Cabrera in RBI. Will he repeat in 2011? Probably not. He is, however, [...]

Only four men in history have done it. Not since 2006. Alfonso Soriano with the Nationals. 46/41. The other three players to do it? 1988: Jose Canseco OAK (42,40). 1996. Barry Bonds PIT (42,40). 1998. Alex Rodriguez SEA (42,46).
Jose Bautista 3B/OF, TOR – 54/9 – The guy came out of nowhere and [...]
