I recently took part in a 2013 fantasy baseball mock draft as part of the “Sunday Night with Tim” mock drafts hosted by Tim McLeod of RotoRob on Mock Draft Central. He holds them every Sunday night (hence the name – who says hence anymore? Tim probably does; he’s old*. *Note added by Grey.) and it’s a good time all around so I suggest you check it out. I plan to do another one in a couple weeks. Anyway, these are 15 team mixed league drafts. How’d I do? What should I have done differently? How have your mocks gone so far this year? Some of my thoughts on this team are below:

It’s time to start looking ahead to the 2013 fantasy baseball season. Here are a couple players noticeably affected by OPS.

Kevin Youkilis – Sigh no more, fantasy owners. I’m expecting a rebound for Youkilis in 2013. I’ll admit that I was worried about The Greek God of Injures at the beginning of this year after his slow start, especially since he’s past his peak years and has a storied injury history. Youk fact of the day: he has never played more than 147 games in a season. Worse yet, he hasn’t played in over 140 games in a season since 2008. Meanwhile, he only graced us with his mediocre presence in 122 games this past season. Despite it sounding like time to jump ship, I’m going to advocate steering back towards the old man. On a side note, how weird will it be to see him on the Yankees? Although this wouldn’t be the first time a Red Sox player moved to the Bronx…
