We at Razzball realize that exporting our views across the country has damaging consequences on the blogosphere. To help make amends, we are reaching out to leading team blogs and featuring their locally blogged answers to pressing 2010 fantasy baseball questions regarding their team.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Denard Dawg doesn’t seem to have a bad rap. He has no rap. Denard Span gets about as much press as fencing in the high school newspaper sports section. Span’s in the shadow of everyone, not just his teammate, the 7-foot-1 Loek van Mil (who’s supposedly very TALLented).Please, blog, may I have some more?
The duality of man:
It’s all Peaches and Herb when you can get the best out of both worlds. Well, fantasy baseball wise that’s either “Martin Prado” good or “Jerry Hairston” awkward. For fantasy pitching, a guy doesn’t necessarily become more draftable based on dual position, but I’m here to “learn” you something about spot starting from the RP spot.Please, blog, may I have some more?
We all know Chone Figgins loves stealing 2nd base, but he might be starting early this year. After a brisk calisthenic session, Don Wakamatsu decided to try Figgy at 2nd base with Jose Lopez shifting to 3rd base. The Mariners haven’t had this amount of speed at 2nd base since they faced David Eckstein and Ichiro moved up 50 steps.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Run Down
In terms of rankings, 2008 was so low because they gave up some top chips to rent CC Sabathia for a couple of months.
I’ve mentioned a few times in the course of the rankings about guys I’d actually own. In the 2010 fantasy baseball top 100, I say there’s 20 guys I’d actually own. I’ll even pull the quote for you. In the F-Her blurb, I said, “If I were to only talk about the guys I would actually own, this top 100 may only be 20 guys long.” See, I did say it!Please, blog, may I have some more?
The other day in the comments someone asked that I give some pairings for my first two rounds of the 2010 fantasy baseball drafts. I was going to do this anyway (you’re not the boss of me!), but sometimes I need a gentle nudge in the right direction.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here, friend, are some catchers that I will be targeting at my 2010 fantasy drafts after the top options are gone. I’m not going to get into the strategy of punting catchers. Been there, half-drunkenly wrote that. Click on the player’s name where applicable to read more and see their 2010 projections.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Last week, I participated in my first real draft. I believe drafting the day pitchers and catchers report is a sign that you’ve lost your marbles. So, when I heard this draft was for all the marbles, I figured those marbles will cancel each other out.Please, blog, may I have some more?
