Never in the history of fantasy baseball posts has anyone successfully pulled off what I'm about to do. I'm going to write out my pre-draft plan here for everyone to see, and leave it unchanged even if the plan doesn't come together. I'm the world where Mike...

March is here, and that means one thing: filling out a bracket or two for March Madness. Oh, wait, wrong sport. In the world that really matters, it is fantasy baseball drafting season. For many, that means after hours and months of going over every player...

For all my rankings this year, I have gone along with Major League Baseball’s numberwanging insofar as prospect eligibility is concerned. Within these specialized rules, we find a days-on-roster component and a magical August 14, 2020 demarcation line...

As we approach our first Top 100 hitters post of the season in the coming weeks, I was contemplating what types of hitter profiles would be be ideal during the run-up.  Then it dawned on me, my years of dynasty love for a certain Florida man beckoned...

Howdy do, folks. The Great Fantasy Baseball Invitational (TGFBI) is well underway, and all of us writer folk are eagerly drafting and impatiently waiting between picks. Spring Training games are in full force. The weather's getting a little warmer (at least...

The loosely related quote from the title de jour involved a peacock and a lesser known Walberg (don't ask me which one, I refuse to store that info) and Will Ferrell buddy-cop film movie flick, and that scene sprung to mind immediately when researching Jon...

For the first time in the history of Torres, yours truly will be participating in the NFBC Main Event.  I didn't do anything to earn that entry, I just decided that it was more worthwhile to invest a lot of money in a fantasy baseball tournament than...

It's a relatively rare feat to witness a player finish in the top-two overall on the Razzball player rater as well as in NL MVP voting two consecutive seasons, then follow up such elite fantasy production with a 99th percentile exit velocity, 98th percentile...

I used to trade stocks for a living. I started out as a market maker for NASDAQ stocks right before the internet bubble then traded my own account for over 10 years. After the kids were born, I transitioned from day trading to more longer-term, position trading....

Framber Valdez pitched after his fractured finger happened, so will be assuming it’s not too terrible. Haha, I’m lyin’ to myself! Now now NOW! Calm down, Grey, it’s gonna all work out. *turns abruptly to mirror* Is it? So, this isn’t...

I play in some deep dynasty leagues. The kind where every at bat has value. Every pulse has value. In leagues like these, guys like Gio Urshella, Mike Yazstremski and Tommy Edman get picked up before their first big chance. I love these large player pools...

Who doesn’t love a cliffhanger ending? I still recall every sitcom I’ve watched in my life that kept me hanging for a full week before the ongoing crisis is resolved. Can Uncle Phil and Will save their relationship? How long will Cherry be stuck...

Okay now that I got that load of laundry out of the way (we discussed per game values here), we can go back... to the future! Looking ahead to this season and what lies before us. How can it be ahead and before? Don't ask me, English is a tortured and butchered...

Last week we covered why you should join an RCL, so this week let’s start covering what to do once you’re in there.  To be honest, this has all been covered somewhere on the site over the years, most often by Rudy. If you haven’t been...

As I'm writing this, I'm realizing that, gloriously, it's not all that early any more (hence my last-minute title change).  Players have not only reported to camp, spring training games are being played and Opening Day will suddenly be here within a month....

Last year's schmohawk posts were Alex Bregman, Joey Gallo, Charlie Blackmon, DJ LeMahieu and Kris Bryant. Welp, four out five ain't bad. I crushed four of those so hard it was like I Mola Ram'd my hand into their chest so decisively, some of them were unable...

A lot of pitcher fantasy analysis centers around pitcher quality: Velocity, stuff, BABIP, Statcast, recent performance…balancing out all of the available metrics to determine cost (draft slot, $ value) is the name of the game. Today we’re...

Hello, or hola, as I learned during my 13 years of Spanish. Welcome to my critique of Yahoo's 2021 fantasy baseball rankings. Or as I sometimes call it, "I don't know what they're thinking, but the longer I think about it the more it hurts my brain, so...

I added You ever get home from a trip to the grocery store, look at what you bought and then wonder if you forgot something? You haven't? Well, then you either have a personal shopper or you are still living at home with the parents. But for us old timers,...
