This week’s Fantasy Roundtable is hosted by Adam Ronis at Strong Island’s most awesome paper - Newsday.com.
THE TOPIC: Where would you draft David Wright in a mid-season league and why?
I veered toward the most bearish in the group – saying I’d take him somewhere in picks 20-30. Grey put him at #14 in his midseason fantasy baseball rankings. Click on the link above to see what some other Fantasy Bloggers thought… Please, blog, may I have some more?
We’re a little over the halfway mark in baseball so why not check in on our leagues…

Hey Razzballers – it’s been a while since our last formal standings update so let’s get crackin’….
In our Razzball Commenter League, the top three have been consistent for several weeks. Anthony G leads the pack by 7 points as he has a remarkable 111.5 points out of 120 in the Gorditas Supreme division. You’d think the division would suck but the overall league performs about equal with the rest of the divisions. ThirdandKing and Mowses are the other two teams over the 100 point mark in their leagues and own the 2nd and 3rd slots. Please, blog, may I have some more?

The standings links are available in the top left of our page (under Razzball Leagues). Please, blog, may I have some more?
Early regrets…I had a few…
The Fantasy Roundtable this week is hosted by Tim Dierkes of RotoAuthority who I remain friendly with despite refusing my suggestion to add an animated Cartman to his site that says “Respect RotoAuthoritah“. His question:

We all realize that a player’s lineup position will have an impact on his statistics. I’ve recently been pondering the fantasy impact of scenarios such as:
What is the impact of Russ Martin and Matt Kemp’s fantasy value if they hit 2nd vs. Please, blog, may I have some more?
