The majority of fantasy baseball rankings (Grey’s included) are based on a 20 game position eligibility that is used by ESPN, CBSSports, and most other leagues. Yahoo fantasy baseball, however, uses the threshold of 5 games started or 10 games total at a position. If Yahoo was any more liberal in appointing positions, Ulysses S. Grant might rise from the grave and claim copyright infringement.

Looking for a great fantasy baseball draft kit to help you draft your fantasy baseball team in 2013? Good, because otherwise you are the worst web surfer in the world. (Did I search for fantasy baseball rankings? Damn, I meant chicken cordon bleu recipe.)

The Razzball 2013 Fantasy Baseball Draft Kit is free for the first 999,999 visitors. The millionth visitor will receive an oversized check for $100,000 with their name in big letters (it won’t have our names or signatures on it though). Everyone after that will also get a free fantasy baseball draft kit.

There are three things I look for in baseball projections – cheap, early, and accurate.

So I’m excited to announce that Steamer Projections are now available on Razzball for free before both the groundhog and other projection systems have popped their heads above ground. They moved up their number crunching a couple weeks from last year and we helped by providing playing time estimates (up to and including the Justin Upton trade).

Welcome to the 2nd annual Razzball Reader survey! These results help us immensely in tailoring our posts and statistics to reflect our readers’ needs.

The survey should only take a couple minutes. I’ll share the results once we get enough responses.

Thanks in advance!

This is part of a two-part series designed to help Fantasy Baseball fans determine on what fantasy rankings and projections to rely.  The first part covered Rankings.  The second part will cover Projections.  The methodology for the test relies on comparing Razzball Commenter League team drafts (576 teams in 2012 across 48 12-Team MLB leagues using ESPN’s default 5×5 format) and their end of season point totals.

Another season in the books.  The season couldn’t end soon enough for our mixed league and NL-only teams as our success seemed to be limited to AL-only where – as late as September 15th – we had a shot at winning all 3 of our leagues.

Aroldis Chapman is being shut down ‘for a couple of days’ with shoulder fatigue.  Dusty actually admitted  “We’re lucky we got to this point” which made every Cub fan both nod and shake their heads.  To be fair to Dusty, his usage of Chapman seems reasonable.

Max Scherzer is finally starting to post some non-apocalyptic ERA/WHIP results to go along with his thunderous league-leading K totals.  A 7 inning / 1 ER / 9 K win against the Pujoless Angels marks his 4th straight start with a Win, 6+ IP, 2 ER or less, and 8+ Ks (this was actually his 8th straight start with 8+ Ks!).

There has been a lot of interest on the site and in the forums involving streaming pitchers.  As many of you know, I value SP more than the average drafter but I am not completely averse to streaming – particularly on teams in shallower league formats (10-12 MLB) with small benches and when I have lost SPs to injury (like RCL where Beachy and Colby are toast).
