We are making a double switch today. Rudy is taking the husband slot which will probably bench him for a few years; Grey is taking the best man slot that will put him in the reliever role and I’ll be taking the cleanup spot for today. If I’m wearing a titanium sombrero after this, just remember Cinco De Mayo is closing in and I’m probably drunk.Please, blog, may I have some more?
There’s a certain grind to the baseball schedule that someone with a slight case of OCD like myself can fully get behind. Day in and day out over six months. You make a small move to offset another move and it may not show up in the standings for three months. By July, you wanna strangle some slow starters (Jimmy Rollins, you bastard!) and you’ve fallen in love with some out of nowhere sleepers (Mark Reynolds is a God!).Please, blog, may I have some more?
The Fantasy Baseball Hall of Fame has spent an unhealthy amount of time identifying the best fantasy seasons, careers, All Stars, and Hall of Famers of the fantasy era. The Fantasy Era began in 1980, and thus many great players of the 1980’s fall just short of enshrinement since their careers commenced in 1979 or earlier.Please, blog, may I have some more?
With these top 20 3rd basemen for 2009 fantasy baseball, we finish off the twenty lists for the infield. From weakest to strongest, the top 20s go top 20 catchers, top 20 shortstops, top 20 2nd basemen, top 20 third basemen then top 20 1st basemen. The outfielders will be coming up next, and I’m sure they’ll be deeper than all of these lists, but that’s just by virtue of the sheer number of them. If you want some overall perspective, look at our 2009 Fantasy Baseball Player Rater. In addition, there’s a list of every player who has multiple position eligibility. Anyway, here’s the top 20 3rd basemen for 2009 fantasy baseball:

These top 20 catchers for 2009 fantasy baseball will be yawnstipating compared to the top 20 1st basemen or even top 20 shortstops, but you have to start somewhere, right? (That was rhetorical.) You can check out our other top 20 lists for 2009 fantasy baseball under 2009 Fantasy Baseball Rankings. I usually don’t draft a top catcher, instead I hold off until the later rounds and grab one of the late rounders. That doesn’t mean I’m going to start the top 20 catcher list at number twenty-one (Varitek? Oy vey.), cause some of youse like to gamble on a top catcher. You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make them draft Chris Snyder. Listed along with these catchers are my 2009 projections for each player. Feel free to also look at our 2009 fantasy baseball player rater. Anyway, here’s the top 20 catchers for 2009 fantasy baseball:

The other day we went over our top 10 for 2009 fantasy baseball and today we fill out the top 20. Pretty neat, huh? What, you can’t handle the word neat? Whatevs. You’re wearing Jordache Jeans and your Mom calls you, “Pumpkie.” Deal with that! Next, we’ll go over the top twenty catchers and so on around the diamond as we look at our 2009 Fantasy Baseball rankings. This 2nd round was a real battle for me to commit to, taking by far the longest time. I had Utley as low as 17, Beltran was at every slot at one point. I’m happy with what I settled on, but I will say that I could see a serious argument made for a reshuffling of these names. By my estimation, there’s only two tiers in the 2nd round. Utley to Fielder then the last three players. In addition to these 2009 fantasy baseball rankings, we have our 2009 fantasy baseball player rater.Please, blog, may I have some more?

And then Dustin Pedroia turned my Silver Bullet into a Sam Adams. I wouldn’t have believed it either, if I didn’t see it with my own eyes. But Pedroia wasn’t done there. Noooo… With a droplet of his sweat, he defrosted Ted Williams so The Splendid Splinter could go to a Southie’s Little League game. But that’s not it! Did you know Pedroia single-handedly completed The Big Dig? Sure, it was fifteen years off schedule, but it would’ve been thirty.Please, blog, may I have some more?
Hey all! My thanks to both Rudy and Grey for allowing me the opportunity to ramble for a bit on one of my favorite off-season topics, the fantasy mock draft. It’s the beginning of January and this would be the perfect opportunity to commence that 2009 preseason fine tuning.Please, blog, may I have some more?
