‘How could anything get past Grey Albright!’ you say in an incredulous tone. It’s true, it is very hard to sneak out from under Grey’s all-seeing ways. He is the fantasy baseball equivalent of the Eye of Sauron, though slightly less malicious.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d write this post. Probably because my wildest dreams don’t usually have to do with where I’d rank Emilio Bonifacio and have more to do with Swedish flight attendants and lingonberries. But then ESPN ranked him 214th overall (I have him 126th overall in my top 300 for 2012 fantasy baseball).Please, blog, may I have some more?
Between the two middle infield positions, I tend to draft a 2nd baseman early and punt shortstop. This happens for a few reasons. 1) 2nd base has more talent. That’s right, I draft the deeper position earlier. Same reason I punt catchers and try to get a 1st baseman early.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Here, friend, are some catchers that I will be targeting at my 2012 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 2012 projections.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Earlier this offseason, the White Sox’s pitching coach said, “We’ll give this kid (that’s Chris Sale, in case that’s not clear; coaches like to call people “kid”) just enough experience and let him go (be a starter). We’re going to do everything in our power to not put [his health] in danger.Please, blog, may I have some more?
It appears another National League contending club is giving the starting shortstop keys to a relatively unproven youngster. As of now, Zack Cozart is slated to be at short on opening day for the Cincinnati Reds.
In 2007, the Reds drafted Cozart in the second round (they also drafted Todd Frazier and Devin Mesoraco – what a haul).Please, blog, may I have some more?
First the Vernon Wells sleeper post (hahahahahahaha — terrible), then the Alex Rios sleeper post (hahahahahahahaha – worse), now a Kevin Youkilis sleeper post…. Seriously, am I getting old here? What the eff in the effhole? Where’s my youth love? My rookie nookie!Please, blog, may I have some more?
Eff it, I’ll get in the hype circle and mosh around a little. Bryce Harper wasn’t listed in my top 300 for 2012 fantasy baseball. He wasn’t listed in my top 80 outfielders for 2012 fantasy baseball. I did drop a Bryce Harper fantasy on you for a rookie nookie outlook thingie-ma-whosie-boobie.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Have you heard I like Anibal Sanchez this year? No? What rock have you been living under? Does your rock have an address? Do you get mail addressed to “Rock?” If someone throws a rock onto your street, does it confuse the postman?Please, blog, may I have some more?
If you got into football a little early (shame on you) and stopped paying attention to baseball, you probably missed out on what Salvador Perez did. He got 158 plate appearances for the Royals down the stretch and hit .331/.361/.473 with three HRs.Please, blog, may I have some more?
