On Dancer!  On Prancer!  On–Oh, I didn’t hear you come in.  Welcome, reader!  Grab some egg nog and brandy it up to the fire.  You look festive.  I love that Rudolph tongue ring.  The 2013 fantasy baseball rankings are not far away.  Right now, January Grey is throwing darts at a board to figure out where to place Konerko.  Exciting!  In the meantime, let’s look at the players who have multiple position eligibility for this upcoming 2013 fantasy baseball season.  This took me far longer than it probably should’ve.  Can’t someone write me a program that sorts all the players by games played at a position?   Why do I need to go through every player on every roster?  It totally harshes my buzz.  I did this list of multi-position eligible players because I figured it would help for your 2013 fantasy baseball drafts.  I’m a giver, snitches!  Happy Holidays!  I only listed players that have multiple position eligibility of ten games or more played outside of their primary position.  Not FIVE games at a position, not six, definitely not seven.  Ten games.  10, the Laurel & Hardy of numbers.  So this should cover Yahoo, ESPN, CBS, et al (not the Israeli airline).  Yes, Christmas came a day early this year.  (Or you actually got a (C)Hanuk(k)ah present this year, if you get your Jew on.)  Players with multiple position eligibility are listed once alphabetically under their primary position.  On a different post, I’ll make some comments about some of the players.  In the mean’s while, you make comments in these comments.  Say that fast 117 times!  Anyway, here’s all the players with multiple position eligibility for the 2013 fantasy baseball season and the positions they are eligible at:

    Sometimes you come across a player who played 5 games at SS and 5 games at 2nd, which won’t qualify them eligible for either 2nd or SS but it does make them eligible for MI if 10 games played is the minimum required. That’s sneaky.

      • Rags says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Yup, NL-only where you need 5 in season, or 20 games from last season to qualify at a position. I’ll take Prado at MI, thank you very much.

      @Nicky numbnuts: His deal still hasn’t gone through due to his hips, so I’m not sure where he’s going to play… Assuming Red Sox deal goes through, he might not get 5 games at catcher all year, unless there’s an injury…

    First off thank you December Grey for all your hard work so far. Really enjoying the new site.

    Now back to fantasy baseballing, I can keep 4 players in rounds 9, 10, 11, and 12.

    Assuming I keep Medlen in the 12th, would you recommend keeping any of these players in rounds 9, 10, and 11? If so, which player in each round?

    Allen Craig
    Ian Desmond
    Wilin Rosario
    Victor Martinez
    Will Middlebrooks
    Jose Altuve
    Salvador Perez
    Anthony Rizzo
    Fernando Rodney

    I could also keep Gio in the 7th.

    Thanks, and happy holidays!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      No problem, glad to help! Craig, Desmond and Rizzo… In that order… Assuming you have a corner infielder spot… If not, Middlebrooks… Happy holidays!

  9. Reno 911 says:
    (link)

    Happy holidays Grey! Keeping Zobrist (mixed H2H) due to his SS eliibility, and multi-postion eligibility. He’s probably not quite a keeper (at his salary) at just OF, or at just 2B, but mix in SS (which generally SSucks), and I’m sold.

  10. Cobb says:
    (link)

    In a keeper league with OPS and K/BB ratio added in, which four of the following would you keep? (Definitely keeping Trout and Stanton, already.)
    Heyward
    J. Upton
    Kinsler
    Hanley Ramirez
    Adrian Gonzalez
    Billy Butler
    Strasburg
    Bumgarner
    Chapman

    I’m leaning toward Hanley, Heyward, Strasburg, and Gonzalez, but I keep questioning myself.

    Thanks for all your extremely entertaining work. This site combines my two favorite things: fantasy sports and comedy. Well done. Some day you need to let people know which TV shows or movies you’ve written. I’m afraid there’s funny stuff out there that I’m missing.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks for the kind words! Happy holidays! Kinsler, Upton, A-Gon and Strasburg… Pretty tough choices, but solid list…

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      BTW, from your list, I went back and forth with Heyward, Upton and Chapman myself…

      • Clifford says:
        (link)

        Dont see how you can justify keeping AGon over Heyward….i mean, for me, its not even close. In a vacuum, here’s how i would rank those players for a keeper league.

        1.) Heyward, 2.) Strasburg, 3.) JUpton, 4.) Kinsler, 5.) HanRam, 6.) Butler, 7.) Chapman, 8.) Bumgarner, 9.) AGon

        yes, i would have AGon last. his power numbers have dropped across the board, and he no longer has that short porch in RF as he did at Fenway. I love Heyward’s potential…if he didnt have a poor 2nd season, people would be talking about him as a top 5-10 overall pick. He’s easily a 30/30 threat for me next year. Strasburg is a pitcher. they get hurt more easily. that being said, would it shock anyone if he reached 300 Ks next year? JUpton is gonna have a monster year….like .300/100/30/100/25….you heard it here first…hes got something to prove IMO. Kinsler retains a ton of value due to positional scarcity. If he moves to LF or 1B full-time his value takes a substantial hit…that being said, he could still hit .270 with 110+ runs, 20-25 HR, and 25+ SB….I hate HanRam, but the man can produce at the weakest position in fantasy baseball. plain and simple…lets take a look at 3 different stat lines from last year….

        .299, 75 runs, 18 HR, 108 RBI, and 2 SB
        .269, 93 runs, 27 HR, 82 RBI, and 21 SB
        .313, 72 runs, 29 HR, 107 RBI, and 2 SB

        personally, id take the 2nd one first, the last one next, and the first one as my last pick. they are AGon, Heyward, and Billy Butler respectively. Again, I dont see how you can justify having AGon ahead of Butler, let alone Heyward. To me, Heyward is a 2nd round pick, with 1st round potential. AGon is more of a 4th or 5th rounder….I love Chapman as much as the next guy, but there’s way way too many question marks about him to keep him over a proven hitter like Kinsler or JUpton, IMO….Bumgarner is a solid, young SP with great potential…however, he doesnt really belong in the discussion at all given the depth that exists in SP

        • Conan says:
          (link)

          @Clifford: Gonzalez isn’t a pull hitter. He had massive power in San Diego. His power has dropped off, but I don’t think the short RF porch helped him anymore than the Green Monster did.

    Thanks for the eligibility stats Grey. I think I might have me some Zobrist or Prado this year.

    Martin Prado, so consistently underrated/ valued.

    Adding SS this year makes it even sweeter.
    Do you see 2012 SB totals repeatable for next year? Seemed to have come out of nowhere, almost doubled his career amount and is even stranger considering in 2011 he lobbed this turd : 4SB/ 8CS.

    In any event – $4 keeper WOO!

    Thanks for this Grey, you enabler you.

    Merry Christmas, Grey. My Razzball ornament is high on my tree – well out of the reach of my 3 year old.

    Here’s my situation. The redraft league that I’ve been in for the past 5 years is switching over to a dynasty league this next season. Blank slate draft going into this year’s 12 team/25 round draft, and then keep 5 players in perpetuity for all subsequent drafts. Obviously, the prospects of keeping guys like Trout and Harper for the length of their careers drastically changes their value going into this draft. In my perfect world, I’d love to get your top 300 players for a draft like this, but I realize that Santa might not stick that gem in my stocking this year.

    Instead, could you give me your take on where you might grab a few of the young guns? Trout, Harper and Stanton I would assume are all first rounders. How bout guys like Profar, Machado, Taveras, Myers, Rizzo, Freeman, and basically any other hot shot talent under 24 years old? I have a feeling a couple guys in my league will reach for Profar, but some of those other names might slide.

    Thanks, Man. I owe you an Egg Nog.

    • Wallpaper Paterson says:
      (link)

      @LA Sound Guy:
      If it is a snake draft you should keep an even number of players. Otherwise, you give an advantage to those who have the better spots in the odd numbered rounds.

      In that league Harper, Trout and Stanton should be first rounders. Let

      other people pick those other guys. You should try to win this season. Pretend the league is a redraft. You will thank me in October.

      • LA Sound Guy says:
        (link)

        @Wallpaper Paterson: Thanks for the advice. We’ve been playing 25 man rosters because, as you know, that’s what the real teams carry. I suppose it gives an advantage to the early drafters in round 25, but so far it hasn’t been noticeable over the course of a season.

        And I agree with you about wanting to win now. I’m looking to grab Big Papi in the 8th or 9th round, even if it means missing out on young talent with a high ceiling in the coming seasons. Sure, Ortiz’s shelf life is coming to an end, but when he plays, the guy still flat out rakes. I’m pretty active on waivers, too, and with Grey helping me stay ahead of the curve, it won’t be the end of the world if I pass on some great potential.

        That having been said, I’d love to get Stanton or Trout in round 1.

        I think I’m just trying to get a sense of some of these other guys who may or may not be the next great thing. If we knew for sure that Taveras was gonna turn out to be Vlad Guerrero, he’d be a first rounder. But we don’t. We just have reports of greatness against AA competition. Still a lot of margin for error there. And I think that’s where your advice comes in. Go with the known commodity to win now, because the value is more tangible.

        • Wallpaper Paterson says:
          (link)

          @LA Sound Guy: 25-man rosters is fine. Technically, though, if you stick with the same snake order throughout, some people get a slight advantage based on draft pick value. Of course, they might not take advantage of it.

          Stanton or Trout would be great choices for you. Stanton already has the best power in baseball and Trout does everything.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      @LA Sound Guy: Merry Christmas! Trout, Stanton and Harper are all first rounders… Profar, etc. are varied… Rizzo’s already playing, and well… He’s higher than someone like Profar… Someone like Profar would be around the fourth to fifth round…

        @Grey: I can’t remember – does Razzball do a list of preseason keeper rankings?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Nah, I don’t think keeper rankings work… Everyone has different keeper rules…

    • Clifford says:
      (link)

      I thought i might offer my take/rankings in such a league. It is a bit touch and go given the complexities of each and every keeper league….but here’s my best shot at rankings….

      1.) Trout, 2.) Harper, 3.) Braun, 4.) Miggy, 5.) Heyward, 6.) Strasburg, 7.) McCutchen, 8.) Kemp, 9.) Cargo, 10.) Cano, 11.) Stanton, 12.) Kershaw, 13.) JUpton, 14.) Votto, 15.) Tulo

      -Couple things. First, dont look too far into the future. Guys like Miggy, Braun, Pujols, Hamilton, etc are still going to be great for several more years…keeper leagues often set out to last forever, but end up only lasting a few years. Try to win now. I wouldnt take Profar anywhere near the 4th or 5th round. I think hes going to be a much much muchhhh better real life player than fantasy player. He’s more of the Starlin Castro mold rather than Tulo or HanRam. He’s not gonna hit 20-25 HR. I would take Tavares first amongst prospects, followed by Myers, and then Bundy or Machado. Secondly, target upside in the middle-later rounds. You cant win your fantasy draft in the first 3 rounds, but you can certainly lose it. Dont reach early. Reach later on when the picks arent as vital to your team’s success initially. Third, dont fall in love with Stanton like everyone else. Im sorry. I understand the guy has insane raw power. I get that he could arguably hit 40-50 HR next year….but at the end of the day, he had an inflated BABIP last year, meaning hes much closer to a .270 hitter than .300…he’s not going to steal more than a handful of bases….he’s going to be hitting in the worst lineup in the NL, giving pitchers ZERO reason to pitch to him….and his RBI and run totals are most certainly going to suffer with Solano and Gorkys Hernandez hitting in front of him. Sorry, im not sold on him as a first rounder. I guess in a keeper league, sure, but id much rather have Jason Heyward. Ill take the 30/30 guy all day over the 40 HR guy.

    Merry Christmas, Razzball!

    So in a few weeks I’ll probably start doing some mocks (and also hosting some for the site like I did in previous years), but I decided to drop by and see some ADP reports.

    In 35 drafts in the last three days, here a few things that stuck out in the minute or so I glazed over.

    CarGo is going second overall. Huh? I love him, but that’s pretty damn high.

    2-3 years ago, 1B was plentiful. Now, there are six OF going in the first round and two 1B in the first two rounds! Definitely a shift there.

    My favorite nugget: Longo was going in the 4th-5th round and Medlen in the 14th or so.

    Now, I know, I know. Half these mocks are bots and it’s only 35 mocks, but it’s always fun to speculate and I’m starting to feel that baseball fever coming along so I had to entertain myself somehow.

      Grey says:

      Merry Christmas! Yeah, there’s a lot to what you said at the end… Early drafts, and only 35 drafts worth of data makes things seem a little wonky… Someone doesn’t draft Longo until the tenth round in a mock where they’re going against nine bots and suddenly Longo’s in the 5th round of ADP…

          Yeah, their ADP’s right now are screwy…

      @Eddy: sign me up… are you doing the slow drafts on couch managers as well…

    In an NL-only, what do you think the shallowest position is going to be next year. Usually I’m worried about SS, but I think this year 2B could be pretty weak (especially with my buddy Altuve leaving the player pool…)

      You mean besides catcher? 2nd base is bad…

      • Rags says:

        @Grey: Yeah, NL-only 2 catcher league, I don’t even consider catcher an offensive position. Sometimes it’s been better to draft a backup who doesn’t play than someone who screws your OBP and barely contributes to counting stats anyway. I lucked into AJ Ellis last year. Keeping him at 4. I’ve got Brantley at 8 (got him off waivers) but am thinking I’ll drop him back into the pool and either get him for cheaper, or punt the second catcher position.

          Grey says:

          Yeah, I’d drop him at 8…

    Hello Grey,
    Hope you holidays are going well. I have a Keeper question(s) for you for our Yahoo 12Team H2H League. What 2 Keepers with their appropriate Rounds would you suggest:
    Cutch -3rd
    Heyward – 6th
    Butler – 8th
    JZimm – 9th
    Desmond – 11th or 12th
    Frazier – 11th or 12th
    Rizzo – 11th or 12th
    Medley – 11th or 12th

    I am leaning towards Desmond and Medlen as 11th and 12th Rounders, but as usual your opinion would be much appreciated.

    Thanks much Grey and a belated Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

      I’d go with Rizzo and Medlen… Happy holidays!

        @Grey: Interesting. I guess I always assume SS is thin, but perhaps not as thin as in the past. It would also be optimistic to think Desmond would repeat his 2012 Season. Right?

          Grey says:

          Yeah, definitely…

    no josh rutledge on the list?

      He only has one position over ten games played….SS…

    melancon to the pirates for hanrahan .

    wonder which will be the more interesting spring training battle :
    hanrahan – bailey
    or ,
    melancon – grilli
    ??

      It’s a wild time to be a Pirates bullpen aficionado…

      @costaricanchata:

      Grilli and Hanrahananan have been named the closer’s already.

  24. Pubcrawlers says:

    I believe that Todd Frazier also has ~15 games in the OF

      @Pubcrawlers:

      never mind, I was misreading baseball reference… carry on…

    @Grey: I don’t see Luis Cruz on this list. He could be the starting 3B in LA, and played 24 games at SS last season. Could be an asset in a deep league.

    Also, readers should keep in mind that ESPN requires 20 games played from the previous season, not 10 like the others (but it is 10 in-season).

    Thanks for the great work!

      Oops, good catch! Missed him…

    Trumbo is eligible at both 1B and OF. Think you may have misssed him.

  27. bob says:

    Sorry, just saw you listed him at OF. Should know better that to second guess you!

    Ever heard of a ‘pivot table’ ? A way to sort endless data based on the parameters you set (ie players with 20+ games at any given position). You can use basic mircos softie’s ‘excell’ to run it.

      I’m so XLS clueless it’s a little scary… I want some to do it for me, please…

      • David Bowies Nephnew says:

        @Grey:

        You need the data first before you can., ahem, analyze it.

        If you are privy to that data, its just a matter of setting the parameters.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Hmm… I just go through each player to see their games played… So I’m acquiring the data that way…

          • David Bowies Nephnew says:

            @Grey:

            A much easier way (assuming you trust the source, for instance I am using another fantasy website: http://baseball.mrsports.com/natl/gamesplayed.cfm for data) is to cut and paste the data into XL and sort the columns from highest to lowest.

            Whatever, just a thought.

              Never seen that site before… Looks like no one’s seen it since Geocities…. But, yeah, that would be good for the future… Thanks!
