Excuse the exposition and this clunky intro into aforementioned exposition, but here’s the catchers to target1st basemen to target2nd basemen to targetshortstops to target and something to stick to your dartboards to target.  These 3rd basemen to target are being drafted after 200 overall.  Keep in mind, nephew (and five niece readers), your Uncle Grey likes to have a corner man drafted by the time these guys appear, so you’re looking at potential utility men more than anything.  Now, this is a (legal-in-all-countries-except-Indonesia) supplement to the top 20 3rd basemen for 2019 fantasy baseball.  Click on the player’s name where applicable to read more and see their 2019 projections.  Speaking of baseball (best segue ever!), the Stream-o-Nator, Hitter-Tron and DFSBot are now available, i.e., the Razzsubscriptions.  Anyway, here’s some 3rd basemen to target for 2019 fantasy baseball:

Nick Senzel (210 NFBC, 214 ESPN, 220 Yahoo)  I have Senzel ranked as a 3rd baseman, ESPN has him ranked as a 2nd baseman, Yahoo has him as a 3rd baseman, and he’s the lead candidate to play center field in Cincy.  How’s dem apples?  Delicious!  Wherever he plays, he will be worth owning.  That’s just common *pinkie to mouth* Senzel.

Ian Happ (264, NFBC, 266 ESPN, 222 Yahoo)  You know what’s funny (but not funny at all). There’s some guys who I am burned by that I am so done with that I spray Solarcaine on certain players’ names just to remind myself they burned me in the past.  “Just blocking some Ray’s.”  “Your computer screen doesn’t give out UV rays.”  “I’m talking about Robbie Ray’s rays!  Leave me alone!”  That’s me interacting with a stranger at a Starbucks.  Happ, however, I don’t care if he’s burned me multiple times in the past.  I am back in once again.  Hopefully, in ten years, I’m not at a dermatologist examining sun spots, saying, “Nah, I didn’t lay out in the sun, Ian Happ was the only one burning me.”

Brian Anderson (276 NFBC, 252 ESPN, 297 Yahoo) I don’t even really care for Anderson, but I had to mention this (I mentioned it on the podcast but not everyone listens).  There was a fantasy baseball magazine this preseason that had a article title on its cover that read, “Stalking This Year’s Brian Anderson”  This absolutely kills me.  No, I don’t read fantasy magazines, so I have no idea what their point was.  What does that even mean?  Stalking?  Did they send someone to stakeout Anderson’s house?  Was it Vincent Adultman?  Did they interview him and misspell talking?  Or how about the brainstorming sesh that thought Brian Anderson would sell magazines?  Are they implying, who will be a player that no one cares about this year?  Did they reject the article, “Stalking This Year’s Wilmer Difo?”  I mean, what in the holy eff does it mean to be this year’s Brian Anderson?  For preseason chuckles, this falls only behind Brian Dozier’s average home run distance was shorter than 29 major league parks and Cody Bellinger played in 162 games, while being platooned.  We should call Bellinger, It’s Academical Ripken.  Any hoo!  Brian Anderson seems like a good bet for a 16-homer, .260 average with decent-enough counting stats.

Johan Camargo (410 NFBC, 267 ESPN, unranked Yahoo)  Gun to my head and you ask me who will be the best value for a guy going after 400 overall, and I will say, “You can just ask me, you don’t have to pull out a gun,” then I’d prolly say Ronald Guzman.  Then, after a bit more deliberation, I’ll say Johan Camargo.  Dansby Swanson feels headed for Brett Lawrie-type bust levels and Donaldson won’t stay healthy for more than 80 games.  If Camargo can’t get 350 ABs, I’d be surprised, but he will need 500+ ABs to have the best value for after 400th overall.  350 at-bats to 500 isn’t a big leap.

Jeimer Candelario (432 NFBC, unranked ESPN, 318 Yahoo)  He had 12 homers thru June of last year, but only hit seven homers the rest of the way, after he was diagnosed with wrist tendinitis.  May is a key month for him to replicate.  He only had a .295 BABIP, hit .262 with 4 HRs.  If he can do that across six months, then he’ll have 24 homers and a .262 average.  Pretty cool math, huh?  He is only 25 years old, so I think there’s a chance here for some surprising goodness.

Renato Nunez (637 NFBC, unranked ESPN, unranked Yahoo) If you said to yourself, “Renato Nunez is a MTV VJ.”  You’re thinking of Daisy Fuentes.  If you’re thinking now, “Then Renato Nunez is the name of the Puerto Rican chick I named my boat after.”  To which I say, stop pretending you have a boat.  That’s an inner tube.  I’m surprised Nunez is such an afterthought in leagues, but I guess you people like someone that can make quote-unquote contact.  Fine, fair enough, but Nunez could easily get into 25 homers *cough* with a .205 average. *cough*

Patrick Wisdom (738 NFBC, unranked ESPN, unranked Yahoo)  Pretty shocked he’s all the way after 700 overall.  To wiggle out of a platoon of Ronald Guzman and get more playing time is that inconceivable?  Asdrubal is that much a lock to stay healthy?  That *scrunches nose* inconceiv-drubal?  *TV news crashes into my office*  We’re here from “When Portmanteaus Go Wrong” and…YOU WENT WRONG!!!

    5×5 Keeper league.
    I should of asked yesterday, what round would you. suggest drafting Fernando Tatis Jr. Keeper value is 170 total per team so draft in 1st round cost is 100, 10th round or later is 10 . So if I can get him in 9th round will cost 20 next year following year cost goes up 10, second year value 20, third year 40, then 80.

    12 team h2h dynasty roto auction league. contracts are on 3 year cycles. max 257 budget predraft and max 18 players predraft. during draft it’s 25 players and 342 max budget. in season budgets mean nothing. anybody can be cut with no penalty, guys that aren’t drafted or kept at a certain price are 10 in year 1 already (unless prospects, who’s clocks don’t start till the year they hit a total of 130 at bats/50 innings). OPS, QS, K/9 in play here. i had to match a bunch of guys with price ups that are good.
    C
    1B freeman (matched 47 year 1/3 now, 1B is so damn weak)
    2B
    SS peraza 10 (2/3, assuming he’s a keeper)
    3B rendon 26 (2/3)
    LF k.davis 25 (matched, 1/3)
    CF robles 10 (0)
    RF stanton 35 (2)
    util (2)

    SP (around 8 is useful):
    reyes 10 (0)
    nola 22 (2)
    morton 5 (2)
    hendricks (10, i matched the 10, 1/3)

    RP (saves only, room for 5)
    yates 13 (2)
    treinen 7 (2)
    chapman 10 (1/3, i matched for this price, HAD cost 29 which i was letting go, so if nobody bid he’d have gone back into the draft where he most certainly would’ve cost more than 10)

    NA (10 slots): kieboom SS WAS (top guy), 10 (0)
    DL (5 slots): kopech 1 (0)

    so far that’s 15 out of max 18 and 241 out of 257 max. we do a 2018 MLB drafted player rookie draft, round 1’s cost 10, round 2’s cost 5 (both in year 0)

    keep any of these?
    – buxton 18 (1/3, got bid up from 1, would have to drop somebody else here for the money)
    – moncada 1 (3/3)
    – mallex 10 (2)
    – mcneil 10 (2)
    – brantley 10 (2)
    – schwarber 1 (2)
    – wacha 5 (2)
    – gausman 3 (2)
    – a.wood 10 (2, probably not with the move to CIN)
    – givens 10 (2)
    – y.alvarez 1B/LF HOU 10 (0)
    – paddack SP SD 10 (0)

    only 16 bucks left and max 3 spots left predraft to keep. i let kraken (25) and c.seager (30) go in the bidding. OPS rater says i’m a fool if i don’t keep schwarber and mallex (from war room) would lock my steals up nicely. could fit both, along with moncada. but one of paddack/y.alvarez might be smart too. probably priced out of buxton having matched on k.davis/freeman/hendricks/chapman.

    • Slappy Jack says:
      (link)

      Schwarber and Moncada for a buck each seems like a steal
      Mallex does seem like the next best value

      Paddack and Alvarez might end up with decent playing time this year… or they might not
      Feels like a year too early on both (possibly two years too early) to get worthwhile returns for their roster spots.
      In an OPS/QS league however , I actually like the Paddack/Alvarez duo better than Kopech/Kieboom pair

    • Donkey Teeth

      Donkey Teeth says:
      (link)

      I’d keep Mallex, Moncada, and Schwarber. Would also swap Paddack in for Kieboom if you can. 12 team dynasty there’s sooooo many prospects available, I like to take the guys that will contribute immediately…

        (link)

        interesting, mike says moncada/schwarber/paddack and keep kieboom in. and i thought he was ETA leaning (to an extent he is). likely is more sure of paddack getting useful innings (that and i only have 4 SP so far kept).

        on kopech IF his clock was getting burned while injured i could see replacing, but it won’t, so i’m thinking he’s just a clear hold. i can see the alvarez over kieboom for OPS, but HOU, so i mean, we’ve seen them hold guys down for years too (aj reed being the biggest name). plus i’m guessing i can redraft alvarez more easily than paddack or kieboom too (kieboom higher on prospect lists and people probably going more gaga for SS guys as of late).

    Great report, titillating (spelled it wrong initially, thank you for your auto-corrector app!)!

    a. Love some of these guys, but some of them would be hated even by their moms. I read from start to finish (portmanteau included) but am only looking at Senzel and Happ in a re-draft, maybe Camargo because I know he’s your boy (so by extension my boy) and I’m rooting for him to get to 500 ABs and Camargo’s .270/27/2 stat line is actually looking pretty good.

    b. Got Eloy back in that points league. Thank you.

    Pick a side:
    Clevinger 17
    E Rod 6

    I would never think of trading these two keepers of mine, but I may have the option before my draft to trade one of Lindor (6th round, can keep him 4 more years max losing a round each year) or Arenado (7th round, with same deal) for another teams Acuna (9th round, where I can keep him next 6 years losing a round each year).

    Is Austin Hays winning the RF job in Baltimore?
    Do you think he gets 400+ AB this season?
    Thanks!

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      From a Baltimore resident…I would bet on the over.

    • bigbear says:
      (link)

      From another somewhat Baltimore resident – a strong “no clue.” Hays has had a strong spring. Plus his ankle seems healthy. But unless/until Davis or Trumbo are hurt/cut/traded, then there is a 5 man rotation in OF (Mancini, Mullins, Rickard, Hays, Santander).

      Regarding Davis and Trumbo… Most fans are ready to move on from Davis. And sounds like the team is at least considering it. But it’s a $20/m sunk cost psychological barrier. I think the team is hoping Trumbo plays well enough to get some type of trade interest. So Davis may lose ABs fairly quickly. Trumbo probably not.

      • bigbear says:
        (link)

        Actually, now that I think about it. Rickard isn’t really that much competition offensively. Santander is similar to Hays, but Hays has more upside. Hays probably splits time early on. But if Davis gets benched, Mancini moves to 1B and Hays/Santander both get everyday ABs.

    Oh, pulling the old “Donaldson will get hurt” trick out I see. Yeah, I didn’t listen to Uncle Grey last year in one of my leagues. Fool me once. But it’s 2019 and guess who I’m drafting?! The top half of that line up looks great! Whoops, sorry, should have made that another paragraph… I’m talking about Senzel. Sizzle! **licks finger, puts out fire on butt** Hoping he can find his way to the #2 spot there.

    Where do you think Wil Myers hits in SD this year? I know you’re not high on him, but he’s got 3B eligibility in Yahoo. Feels like he should be a #5/6ish hitter (after Renfroe). But that team has a ton of #5/6ish hitters. So maybe #2 or #4? Not a fan of the AVG, but 25/20 isn’t that big of a stretch (maybe even 30/20). The R or RBI (depending) look a little light on your projections. He was pretty dinged up last year (a bunch of various stuff), so thinking it was an anomaly and he can revert to 2016-17 form. Still haven’t drafted him though…

    Bravo Grey! Awesome sleeper list as always. I need your help with this. I’m in a Keeper league and this scenario could be very likely come draft time. I have a 1st round pick and the only available players are Scherzer, Mondesi, Bryant and Benintendi per your rankings. Should I really skip Scherzer and pick up Mondesi who is ranked at 408 in Yahoo? Feels insane to me. Feel like Benintendi or Bryant is a saner move but I’d still be using a round 1 with those guys. Please help. Thank you!

      Bryant

      Nah, you can draft Mondesi later since he’s buried in their rankings

    Thanks Grey! Love these deep posts, especially the VJ reference. Quick story, Foxygen is an indie band out of LA who were in DC a few years back. They tweeted that best question to them would get free tickets for their show. My questions was, who was your favorite MTV VJ, mine was Idalis. They responded Kurt Loder who then jumped into the tweet thread. That was my twitter peak and it’s been downhill since but Loder seemed to be a really cool guy. I miss the VJ days.

    I had a proud moment for you earlier this week. There was a front page fantasy Reddit post on a guy saying he is quesitoning holding JoRam in a dynasty and cited your analysis. He’s also dropping in Yahoo like mad which I attribute to you.

    Last thought, 10 team roto, basically the same guys since ‘98. I’m considering a proposal that would force the 10th place team to go on the Alien/Bigfoot excursion with Jose Canseco? Since you and Jose are close and have history what do you think of that as last place punishment?

    • Cram It says:
      (link)

      I saw Foxygen on their first ever nationwide tour off their debut album, in Baltimore, it was like their 3rd show. (Possibly the same tour you saw them in DC) They were absolutely terrible. Stopping and starting multiple songs, singing before cue. I was embarrassed for them. I imagine they’ve gotten better or they wouldn’t still be getting recognition. But it was interesting to see the growing pains.

      • J-Hova says:
        (link)

        That’s awesome you saw them that early. Was it Ottobar. I did hear rumors that their early shows were bad, France is a bit of a loose cannon. The one I tried winning tickets for was off of Star Power. I heard rumors that they cleaned up their show for Hang and the performances were great. That being said, i think they are fighting again so not sure they are even touring the new one coming out in April.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Haha, that’s awesome… Did Loder break in with a tweet with breaking news music?

      Nice on Jo-Ram!

      Is an alien excursion with Canseco a possibility? Because, if so, how do I sign up?

      • J-HOVA says:
        (link)

        Haha, no but every time he tweets I do picture he reading that tweet in front of the crazy 90’s MTV backdrop wearing an IOU blazer.

        Assuming you haven’t been blocked by Canseco on twitter, he lists his agents phone number on his twitter feed and says his Bigfoot excursion is nearly booked.
        Not sure if Morgan is who you booked his Podcast appearence with but that’s who you need to book through. IMO they owe you a free excursion for bailing on their Podcast commitment so quickly. On that note, any guests lined up this year? I really enjoyed the B-Real one from last year. I think rapper is the way to go!

          I want to just interview 90’s rappers… I should have this be my podcast… Not sure if I ever mentioned this, but I was chatting with Fife Dawg on email about being on the show right before he died… No official guests right now lined up though…

            Wow, thats crazy. I know he was a huge sports fan, that would have been a great get. Being out west, you should shoot for someone from the Heiro crew or Tash/Xzibit. Evidence seems to be a big sports fan and is super accessible through Twitter. I’m pretty sure that you can corner the market on Baseball/Rap podcasts if you havnt already with the B-Real interview!

      • Db says:
        (link)

        Yea my problem last year in nfbc is a had all these guys who didn’t do shit till 2h of the season so I was in a hole to start the season this year I positioned myself a lot better to start the season off and if 1 or 2 of these Low end starters I drafted over achieve makes my sale, Ray combo even better. I could’ve kept going with awesome hitters all day Ozuna and all these guys were there in round 10 and on I’ve done that before stacked the outfield with all the big names and then it doesn’t pan out ever.. so I went for more balance. Middle infield will be interesting but I think I had this problem a couple years ago and ended up picking up lindor later in the year

  25. Dave D says:

    Nice pic on Richards. How you feeling about your DC roster so far? I see we’re both gonna be scouring for 8th outfielders later than most. I feel extremely proud to be the only manager to refuse to draft a C. I gotta stand for something afterall and this is my stand!!!

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Thanks! My team went south about 3 rounds ago… Hoping to revive it coming up, maybe Richards is the first step there… How do you like your team?

      • Dave D says:
        (link)

        I feel like I still have work to do. Overall I feel decent but a lot will depend on how I compensate for late 1B picks, and also covering CI until Muchodough gains eligibility there. Hopefully McMahon starts at 2B. I’m gonna need more depth and to take a flyer or two in later rounds on upside guys at a few spots. I absolutely love my C’s so far most of all. I’d give myself a B so far.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Just looked at your team, nice Parker pick, and I love Pillar, McNeil and your first 4 rounds…Gonna come down to how rounds 5 thru 12 play out for you

          • Dave D says:
            (link)

            Yeah, thanks. I like McNeil a lot and he should be eligible at MI/CI/OF eventually. I’ve seen the Mets try him at 1/2 in batting order recently. Hopefully Pillar leads off. If he does thats HUGE!

            • Grey

              Grey says:

              Yeah, I like him too… You just gotta hope you have the bats

              • Dave D says:
                (link)

                I’m hoping for 70 points from my arms and 50 points from by bats, polar opposite of my three other DCs.

                • Grey

                  Grey says:

                  Yeah, you need that with how you’ve drafted… Not saying it won’t happen, but wouldn’t have been how I went…

                  • Dave D says:
                    (link)

                    Well, since its my fourth draft and there are 13 guys following an offense first philosophy I figured I’d try something different. When I’m done with this DC I’ll post my 4 DC rosters and you can predict which ones place where, lol. That’d be funny if you pegged them.

    Yo grey- the third basement 2nd basement stuff will be my Achilles heel this season so i thank you for the cyclopsing

    Andrelton Simmons and Dahl for Xander Bogaerts? My other outfield is Trout/ benintendi / Ozuna…. my other utility bats are meadows , jake bauers, and ramon laureano

    Guys out there on waivers as bats are adam eaton/ josh bell, panik .. stuff like that

    OR

    Andrelton simmons and Jose Leclrerc for Xander Bogaerts- with trevor may on waivers- holds and saves points leagues

    Always a pleasure to read your stuff Grey. Was wondering what your thoughts might be.

    I’m in a 10 team standard roto league in ESPN. 8 keepers.

    Right now I have the following guys for keepers for my fielders

    Eugenio Suarez
    Charlie Blackmon
    J.D. Martinez
    Carlos Correa
    Alex Bregman
    Jose Ramirez

    Backup keeper

    Jose Abreu

    My keeper pitchers are

    Gerrit Cole
    Aaron Nola

    Backup keepers are

    Walker Buehler
    Jack Flaherty
    Patrick Corbin

    I was just offered a 1st round pick for Charlie Blackmon which would allow me to keep Buehler. I know you don’t like Correa Grey but I’m rolling the dice on him for one more year. Buehler seems like a special pitcher and I’d love to keep him if he turns into the superstar everyone keeps saying but last year I didn’t keep one single pitcher and was able to draft Nola & Cole with back to back picks but that won’t happen this year.

    Figured I’d get thoughts if people would take the trade. It’s a lot of runs to give up but Blackmon is getting older, SB production has been declining and I could get in on the ground floor what would could be a phenomenal player and use the pick to replace Blackmon.

    I know this seems like a no brainer but i always find it’s easier to draft pitching and maybe I could get Buehler again but since I won last year, I’m drafting last this year so hard to say.

    Thanks for the help.

    Yo Grey, have my first draft coming up on Sunday and would love to get your thoughts, even though these are essentially ‘look at the rankings’ questions. Thanks for all that you do!

    All questions are for shallow 10-team yahoo mixed league…

    These sexy late MIs…Wendle, Fletcher, Hampson, McNeil, Urias, etc, is there a particular one or two specifically that you are heavily targeting and trying to draft for most of your teams or do you prefer to spread the love with these guys and essentially draft all/most of these guys at some point? Would your answer change in a keeper league?

    Roster Resource currently showing McMahon starting and Hampson on the bench. Knowing that you moved Hampson up the ranks recently since the Rockies didn’t sign a dead body to play 2b, does RR showing McMahon starting change your thoughts on either Hampson or McMahon?

    Similar to my first question, any Starters after the top 60 that you are heavily targeting for multiple teams? Or are you spreading the love between all the guys you like? I think McHugh and Stripling are the 2 I am most interested in, but curious to get your thoughts.

    Thanks Grey!

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      I don’t think McMahon is the starter, I think it’s Hampson, but I have no idea what the Rockies will ever do… It’s a guessing game… I own Fletcher and Bieber on multiple teams…

    AL only OBP over AVG, total bases added, net steals over steals. QS over wins and holds added. 10 team h2h. keep 3 yearly at previous season’s ADP costs. 1 of each infield, 4 any OF, 1 util, 1 CI, 1 MI. 5 SP, 4 RP, 3 BN. max DL and 1 NA. slow draft going on till sat. i have
    vlad (25th round), altuve (drafted 1st), villar (9), bieber (24th round), gallo (3rd round), paxton (2nd).
    now i’m stuck on whether to take:
    upton (another OF i can use)
    cruz (util only and good lord is he old, BUT OPS rater have him about 11 bucks more than upton).
    i draft again 7 picks after this pick here. probably RP #1 time at that time. these others are around:
    osuna
    upton
    hand

        (link)

        yeah i’m kinda worried about cruz’s connection dying, or his body finally falling apart from taking that stuff since what age 30 or around there. remember he was the guy who hit exactly 25-28 HR’s every year and missed what like 30-40 or more every year, then SUDDENLY he hits age 30 and the HR’s go up at least 10 per year and no more injuries. he got on that braun connect. the stuff the smart guys take that is ahead of the tests. this wasn’t launch angling here, it was needling angling.

        – i told that guy though, even IF we KNEW kimbrel was on WAS doolittle for 15 in a 15 team holds/saves league is STILL keepable.

        • Joey Jo Jo Jr Shabadoo says:
          (link)

          not “10 PER year” i meant at least 10 more than 27 HRs EVERY year after that. not adding 10 more every year to the previous year.

        • Grey

            funny since i know the OPS rater has him very high every damn year and i’ve dodged him ALL of these other years. baseball forecaster meanwhile has upton down for better stats everywhere (slightly worse HR’s, but better skill stats and OPS too), not by tons, but better. steamer really likes cruz all the time.

    Either

    $10 ozuna

    Or
    $3 gennett

    I was debating keeping$1 rosario $1 tatis or $11 bader as my last nl only keeper. Leaning towards bader as 15 hr 20 steal .275 in that spot over tatis for 2 years @ $1 but can be convinced otherwise as $11 seems hefty.

    Have acuna, muncy, albies snd hoskins as keepers.

    Haha. I’m watching the Braves/Nats game. The wind is blowing hard out to left. Dozier hit a high flyball that ultimately went into the bullpen for a homer. I think it went about 389 feet anyway. Dozier could be in for a bounce back as long as he only plays when the wind is gale force to left.
    Ahhh spring training.
    It’s his second and he’s healthy. Maybe you should change his ranking (that’s for Cram It, haha)

    Can keep 8 nl only
    Im keeping

    Albies 5
    Hoskins 8
    Acuna 16
    Muncy 4
    Corbin 1
    Vazquez 1
    Nola 26

    Last spot

    Tatis $ 1 have for 2 years
    Bader $11 2 years
    Or
    Amed rosario last year at $1

    Can trade tatis n Rosario for one of them and use on my eighth keeper slot

    Then go draft 2 or 3 stud bats which i know will be up for auction

    Does this help with your analysis

    Rendon for rosario n tatis

    Or ozuna

    Or pass n keep either tatis or bader in eighth spot

    • Joey says:
      (link)

      $10 on both rendon or ozuna for just this year

      • Grey

        Grey says:

        Rendon, you’re playing for this year, now win it!

      Grey says:

      I’d go Rendon and win this year

      • Joey says:
        (link)

        Other owner took rendon off the trade now wants to do $8 pereza for $1 tatis and $1 rosario (who i wasnt keeping)

        Or just keep tatis or $10 bader as my last keeper

        Or push for $10 ozuna

    Is the best way to know your most recent ratings is from War Room (and, if so, does the download version have same data as the on-line version)? Or is there another method to get them?

    Thanks.

    • Ghost of Grady Little says:

      If you’ve already downloaded the war room, you can update the excel file by going to Data (on the ribbon) -> connections -> refresh all. That’ll pull the most recent data from the website.

    An owner has put Greinke on the block. It’s a keeper league (Roto) but he’s only good for this year and he’d be $9.
    I just listened to the pitcher podscast so I know you are way down on him but as an SP2 does he have any worth at that price. Your projection isn’t really too bad but I know that’s best case . About the only guys I have I would offer would be a $1 Haniger or a $3 OZUNA both of whom are also only good for this year.
    It’s a 10 team league but everyone rosters at leasat 10 SPs becasue we have innings pitched as a a category so decent SPs have to rotated in and out for 2 start weeks.
    Would you do a $1 Haniger for $9 Greinke? What about Ozuna at $3 (don’t really want to but if you thought that was fair I might consider it).

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Rudy has drafted Greinke in multiple places, I would not draft him…. I’d take Haniger

      • Sweatpants Nation says:

    Long time listener, first time called (I say in my best radio voice). I just drafted this team in a 12-man NFBC league. Interested in your thoughts?

    C – W. Castillo
    C – C. Iannetta
    1B – F. Freeman
    2B – R. Odor
    SS – X. Bogaerts
    3B – J. Donaldson
    OF – R. Acuna
    OF – G. Springer
    OF – A.J. Pollack
    OF – N. Mazara
    OF – B. Gardner
    CI – J. Smoak
    MI – J. Wendle
    Util – J. Peraza
    P – B. Snell (I know, top starter, but he fell to the 4th!)
    P – J. Flaherty
    P – T. Glasnow
    P – N. Pivetta
    P – J. Lucchesi (Not sure why no one else loves him?)
    P – M. Wacha
    P – A. Sanchez
    P – C. Allen
    P – A. Vizcaino
    B – O. Herrera
    B – M. Franco
    B – N. Markakis
    B – C. Kelly
    B – B. Boxberger
    B – A.J. Minter
    B – B. Parker

    I’ve played in a private high stake H2H, 16 team, daily lineup changes auction league for years, but this is my first time trying a NFBC league. As a player coming from a league that is so different settings wise, I really have no idea if my team came out well or not. In the NFBC format, does it make sense to start 7 pitchers and 2 closers or 6 pitchers and 3 closers? I’m sure you could right an entire post on NFBC strategy versus other league format strategies (subtle request), but just knowing the optimal pitcher breakdown would help. Thanks a lot! You’re a god of fantasy baseball and mustaches!

      Usually, I go 6/3, unless the SPs have great matchups… Since your RPs are wonky, I’d guess you’re gonna be better off with 7 SPs most weeks… Your hitting looks okay, you took a bunch of guys I would not draft, but I can’t argue with the results… Snell is great in the 4th, solid pick, even if I don’t like him… Pollock, Gardner, Donaldson are my bigger concerns, but you have decent bench bats to help them… Solid overall team!

    It’s funny to see Senzel listed as a 3B. Love him as a 2B/MI, even though he probably won’t see any time there either.

    I like how you followed up the super boring Zimm/Barnes swing with the Hays/Richards upside swing. Good pick on Hays. We were giving him a hard look.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Hays feels to me like Domingo Santana… Everyone wanted him last year, then he lost playing time, and now he’s being ignored… I don’t know if Senzel’s going to have the playing time… You think Kemp and Schebler are just going to be benched indefinitely?

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        I don’t think that Senzel will be affected by them, if that’s what you’re asking. Kemp is a part-timer/bench bat at this point. Schebler might see some PT, but he’s more insurance for them, I think. Might take some time away from Winker if anything. Senzel is a franchise building block. He would’ve taken off last year if it wasn’t for his health issues.

        Here’s some catcher trivia for you (since I know you love them so much): There are two catchers who have hit at least .270 with double digit HRs in each of the last two seasons. Who are they?

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Not sure about your Senzel tea leaves, but it’s your 9th round pick…

          Ramos and Welington (totally guessing, what fun is it Googling i?)

          • Big Magoo

            Big Magoo says:
            (link)

            Everyone’s tea leaves are different. I wouldn’t touch Baez or Mondesi at their current going rates. That’s what makes fantasy fun.

            A: Realmuto and Kurt Suzuki

            • Grey

              Grey says:
              (link)

              Yeah, for sure on tea leaves, Reds seem like they’re going Schebler tho A. Damn, never would’ve guessed Suzuki… Dur, of course Realmuto!

              • Big Magoo

                Big Magoo says:
                (link)

                Yeah, could follow the Dahl path where they need to see him stay on the field before they can trust him. I think the talent wins out though.

                Catcher seems even more dire than usual. Lots of platoons. Power is down. A .250 avg is considered good at the position. It’s always nice to find someone who’s cheap, won’t kill your avg, and has some pop. Suzuki checks off all the boxes.

                • Grey

                  Grey says:
                  (link)

                  I guess with Suzuki, but he’s in a platoon too, and I don’t see a 12-homer, .270 with 40 runs/RBIs as a huge selling point… But I have total garbage at catcher, so agreed there’s not much out there… Hoping my Mejia gamble pays off…

                  • Big Magoo

                    Big Magoo says:
                    (link)

                    Doesn’t have to be huge #s for a C2 around 300 overall. I don’t think most people realize how much a crappy .230 catcher hurts their team. Unless that guy hits 20 bombs, which just isn’t around at the position.

                    • Grey

                      Grey says:
                      (link)

                      Meh, C2 is kinda here nor there for me… Last year, I finished top 20 overall and I didn’t have a C2 for half the season

                  • Big Magoo

                    Big Magoo says:
                    (link)

                    Yeah, when OTS and I finished top 20 overall in the online championship a few years ago, I don’t think we had much at catcher either. With a little more production there, maybe we could have finished top 10 or even top 5. Sometimes finding small advantages can make a big difference, especially at a cheap price point.

    Trying to decide on my final keeper. Altuve in the 2nd round, or Ozuna in the 14th? I was dead-set on Ozuna and now people are making me think I’m crazy. Neither Mondesi or Murphy were kept, so I think one of them should be available in the 3rd round. I’m expecting a big bounce-back year for Ozuna.

    Keeping Betts (7) and Haniger (21) in the OF if that makes a difference at all.

    Thanks Grey!
