As you probably know, we just went over the top 10 for 2012 fantasy baseball and today we give you… Hint: it’s in the title of the post. Oh, forget it. Here’s our top 20 for 2012 fantasy baseball. And by our top 20 for 2012 fantasy baseball, I mean mine, but ‘our’ sounds more official.Please, blog, may I have some more?
What time is it?! 8:25 AM! No, random italicized voice, it’s time for the 2012 Fantasy Baseball Rankings. Second guess. All the 2012 fantasy baseball rankings will live in that link. The one that reads 2012 fantasy baseball rankings. It’s also at the top of the page.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Yesterday around 7:45 Eastern Time, Twitter got a little extra crazy. Jerry Crasnick of ESPN tweeted that the Mariners were close to acquiring an “impact” bat. Rumors swirled, Adam Jones jokes were passed among Orioles fans (that’s all we have), but eventually the world focused on the New York Yankees because that’s where the universe usually focuses.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Madison Bumgarner will probably be on at least 75% of my teams this year. In the rankings, which start this upcoming Monday, I’ve ranked him way higher than any rational person so I’m bound to have him. You can’t even guess how high I have him.Please, blog, may I have some more?

The Red Sox pipeline, as usual, is flush with talent.Please, blog, may I have some more?
I, Albert Lang, have been a Kelly Johnson fan, for no real reason, for some time now. I seem to be the only one. ESPN has him in the 200s, and his ADP is at 253. Certainly his 2011 (.222/.304/.413) did nothing to engender him to fantasy players, but I think this just makes him a steal for 2012.Please, blog, may I have some more?
No, they don’t refer to these Nolan Reimold-types as being “Grey’s stubborn and unable to let go of past” sleepers. No, I’m not just recycling posts from 2009. Though how about that Garrett Atkins?! These players are post-hype sleepers, y’all!Please, blog, may I have some more?
This is ridiculous. Brandon Morrow has been a sleeper for me going on three years. I realize this. Hence my pointing-it-out’ing. Here’s what I have to ask myself. Is he just another Ricky Nolasco? A guy that consistently has an ERA higher than his xFIP and you should just ignore?Please, blog, may I have some more?
For the first three months that Mike Moustakas was in the majors last year, he hit .232 with one home run through 250 ABs. Major league pitching looked all Greek to Moustakas. Hehe. Speaking of which, “hehe” is giggling like a schoolgirl, so shouldn’t it be sheshe?Please, blog, may I have some more?
I’ll give you a little insight into my writing these posts. I write the majority of them in October and November. Baseball’s slow then and it gives me time to backlog. I tell you this because I want to be clear that when I wrote this post Alex Presley was a sleeper with everyday playing time coming his way in five months.Please, blog, may I have some more?
